The Solar System: Wonderfully Designed for Us

by Chris W. Ashcraft M.S., M.Ed., MTMS.

Description:

The Solar SystemThe Solar System is a marvel of engineering and design, but natural science tries to explain away its origin and clockwork precision with various models and theories. Our solar system is thought to have formed from condensations within a swirling cloud of gas and dust (nebula theory). But when the planets were better analyzed by space probes many surprising discoveries were made that conflict with this prevailing theory.
This presentation provides a tour of the solar system, and discusses the fine-tuning that is abundantly evident, which makes life possible. During our tour we will stop at each planet and many moons and discuss their unique qualities that defies natural explanations. As each new discovery is made in Astronomy, the design and handiwork of out Creator is revealed.

About the Teacher

Chris AshcraftChris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools, and adjunct professor at Northwest University. Chris has also worked in plant biotechnology. He was a research technician at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University, then at the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State University, and lastly was the Plant Transformation Specialist for EDEN Bioscience in Bothell Washington ..

He obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology from Wayland Baptist University in 1989, a Master of Science in biology from Texas Tech University in 1996, a Master of Education from the University of Washington in 2008, and a Master is Teaching Math and Science from Seattle Pacific University in 2012.

Chris moved from research science into the teaching profession to serve God in Christian education. His decision was motivated by the impact that secular science is having on people of faith. Today, close to 50% of Christian students lose their belief in God while attending secular schools. This tendency could be lessened if the Church was better equipped to defend the authority of Biblical teachings (1 Peter 3:15). To be prepared for these challenges, it is important that Churches provide regular educational programs on creation and other Bible apologetics.
