The Bible, in its entirety, is God’s inspired word. In its original autographs, it is fully accurate, not only concerning spiritual issues, but also in matters of history and science. The universe and all that it contains, both living and non-living was designed by God and created out of nothing in six literal days as described in Genesis. Biological changes since creation have been confined within the created kinds. The creation occurred several thousand years ago, not millions or billions. The Noachian Flood, as described in Genesis, was an historic event, world-wide in extent. Acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God and Creator, is mankind’s only path to reconciliation with God. “...The fear of the lorD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

This is also an opportunity for DSA members to invite leaders who may be uncertain about the impor- Photos courtesy of Rick Thompson Wednesday July 22, 2015 tance of the topic of Biblical origins. This has been a very significant experience for leaders when they see the evidence first hand and realize how it affects our view of scripture. It is exciting when we can help pastors and congregations address this issue in a more informed way. We encourage you to partner with us in this mission by inviting your Christian leader friends. Also consider covering their expenses and coming along with them or by donating to DSA’s scholarship fund. if you would like to donate for this, please write “Pastor’s trip” on your check and send it to the DSA address: PMB 218, 465 NE 181st. Ave., Portland, OR 97230. If you have someone to register or have any questions, please call (503) 257-0144. Thanks. Famous British mathematician/astronomer, Sir Fred Hoyle, realized the improbability of life forming just by physics and chemistry on earth and so initially thought it could have formed somewhere else in the universe and been seeded on earth from there. However, he apparently later realized that even if the whole universe were an experiment for all its supposed evolutionary age, life would not form. He is quoted as saying, “The likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is one to a number with 40,000 naughts after it … It is big enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of evolution. There was no primeval soup, neither on this planet nor any other, and if the beginnings of life were not random, they must therefore have been the product of purposeful intelligence.” —Sir Fred Hoyle, as quoted by Lee Elliot Major, “Big enough to bury Darwin”.
