About our video speaker
Kurt Wise is director of the Center for Creation Research and Professor of Natural History at Truett McConnell University in Cleveland, Georgia. Trained as an invertebrate paleontologist (B.A., University of Chicago; M.A. & Ph.D., Harvard University), Kurt Wise previously taught at Bryan College and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Unlike the vast percentage of his fellow scientists, Kurt is a young-age creationist, trusting God’s word to conclude that the universe was created by God only about 6,000 years ago. Kurt has been engaged in young-age creation research in biology, geology, and paleontology for more than a quarter century. On these subjects he has authored or co-authored several dozen professional papers, scores of shorter professional articles, and numerous lay publications, including two books, Faith, Form and Time and Something From Nothing. Kurt is currently developing a college conceptual biology textbook.
Kurt has been featured in a number of publications about creationism, including Ron Numbers’ history, The Creationists. In professional creationism, he was one of the founding board members of both the Creation Biology Society and the Creation Geology Society. In the presentation of creationism to the church, he contributed the scientific content for the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky and for the Genesis 1-11 portion of the second edition (1999-2014) of Precepts Ministries’ Genesis Bible study.
Kurt is a dynamic speaker. He was a favored lecturer on the subject of a Christian worldview of science at Summit Ministries camps for fifteen years and a popular workshop leader on the subject of leadership at AWANA conferences for more than a quarter century. For more than three decades, Kurt has spoken in churches on the subject of creationism.
Kurt and his wife Marie live in Cleveland, Georgia. Having served together for thirty years in AWANA Clubs in Massachusetts, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia, Kurt and Marie currently serve in the choir at Friendship Baptist Church in Cleveland, Georgia. The Wises have two married daughters and three grandchildren.
Due to technical difficulties, we were unable to bring a live presentation of Dr. Kezele's advertised program on Carbon 14. Consequently, we resorted to a back-up plan, and showed a YouTube of a previous lecture Dr. Kezele had given us titled, "THE PERFECTLY PROVIDING PLACENTA." This was new for some of our audience. For others it was a good refresher course, their having seen the lecture in person nearly 10 years ago, on August 7, 2010.
About our speaker: Joseph Kezele studied the sciences and music at the University of Arizona, while earning his B.A. in Russian in 1971, and his M.D. in 1975. He then completed a Pediatric Residency and practiced Emergency Medicine for 25 years in the Phoenix area, and was a diplomate of the American Board of Emergency Medicine and fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He is now retired from the practice of medicine, serves as President of the Arizona Origin Science Association, is an Associate Professor at Arizona Christian University in Phoenix, teaching Human Genetics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Pathophysiology, Organic Chemistry and Creation Science Apologetics. Dr, Kezele has also been named a Logos Research Associate. He serves as Chairman of Deacons and teaches Creation Science Evangelism at Black Mountain Baptist Church in Cave Creek, Arizona. He has participated in over 21 foreign mission trips, teaching medicine, standard evangelism and creation science evangelism in India, Zambia, Mexico, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Ukraine, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Armenia. Dr. Kezele is one of the principle presenters in the Institute for Creation Research’s 4 DVD series Made in His Image. Three years ago, he returned to the Ukraine for three intense weeks of teaching Creation Science Apologetics and Evangelism as part of the activities prompted by the proclamation of the President of the Ukraine recognizing the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's sparking the Reformation in Germany.
