VCY Rally September 21, 2013: Dr. Menton Presents 'Biology: The Appearance of Design' plus 'Evolution vs. God' showing
Come to the VCY Rally on Saturday, September 21, 2013, 7pm, at the Waukesha Expo, for two faith affirming presentations.
Guest speaker Dr. David Menton of Answers in Genesis begins the evening with his talk entitled, Biology: The Appearance of Design. Dr. Menton was a professor at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis for 34 years where he taught human gross anatomy and histology and also conducted research. After retiring from the University, he joined Answers in Genesis as a speaker and researcher. He travels throughout the U.S. and abroad, sharing his message.
Following Dr. Menton's presentation, there will be a showing of Ray Comfort's DVD, "Evolution vs. God". In this powerful video, Comfort conducts multiple man on the street interviews challenging evolution and atheism. This is a great opportunity to see Evolution vs. God - Shaking the foundations of faith. Don't miss it.
Labor Day is past, which means it is back to school time for students enrolled in public and private schools in our state. However, the education most students receive today is very different from the 3 R's of the past.
In the last 120 years, the philosophies of humanism and Marxism have undermined the Judeo-Christian values our nation was founded upon, both in our schools and society. University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh professor James Duke Pesta, Ph. D., will discuss this radical philosophical shift from absolute truth to moral relativism at his upcoming presentation at the Creation Science Society of Milwaukee meeting at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Dr. Benjamin Carson was the featured speaker at the Americans for Prosperity rally last Thursday night at the Waukesha Expo. Though Dr. Carson made quite the media splash at the National Prayer Breakfast in February 2013, his visit to Waukesha went largely unnoticed by local mainstream media.
Senator Ron Johnson was also invited by AFP, and he spoke prior to Dr. Carson about the dysfunction of Washington D.C. Then he gave an interesting intro about his first impressions of Dr. Carson at the prayer breakfast, which is included in the video clip below. (Sometimes being wrong is good!)
