Big Bang vs. Biblical Creation


Are They Compatible?

Description:

Secular astronomers believe that space and time began through a great cosmic explosion, and yet the Bible says God spoke the universe into existence. While some Christians try to reconcile these two views, the creation account contains a strikingly dissimilar sequence of events.

This presentation will analyze the big bang theory, and the supporting evidence including the redshift of light, cosmic background radiation, as well as homogeneity. Alternative interpretations are presented, which argue that the Earth occupies a special place in the universe after all.

About the Speaker:

Chris AshcraftChris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools and Adjunct Professor at NW University. Formerly, Chris was a biology research technician specialized in plant tissue culture and genetic transformation technology. He was employed at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University and 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.
