Next regular meeting: 
Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 7 pm

Coming to SABBSA in April
Things That Go Bump in the Night:
Do black holes and dark matter exist?

At our April meeting we will feature a video from Answers in Genesis with Astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner who explores the existence of black holes, dark matter and dark energy. He separates the issues of physics and good science from evolutionary musings.

Do black holes exist? What about dark matter? Dark energy?

Weren't these things just made up to salvage evolutionary ideas? You'll learn that there is a good case for black holes with no need of evolutionary involvement. There's a good case for dark matter, too, while dark energy is a bit more speculative. Black holes and dark matter quite literally take our understanding physics to its breaking point, and they illustrate how God's creation holds many mysteries, while pointing undeniably to the Creator and Savior Himself!

Please join us on April 8th for this insightful program, good food and warm Christian fellowship!



Science Workshops at FEAST in 2014

We will again put on the FEAST Science Workshops on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Family Educational Alliance for South Texas. We thank FEAST for having faith in us to provide this teaching for the seventh consecutive year! Below is the schedule of multimedia presentations we will present for the home school community this school year.

Each one of these titles represents a multimedia presentation with embedded films and pictures to enhance each presentation. We will offer a companion young children's program to go along with the youth and adult's program described.

January 27, 2014 - Biology in a Created World
February 24, 2014 - God, Man and Dinosaurs
March 24, 2014 - What If God Wrote the Bible?
April 28, 2014 - The Discovery of Genesis in Chinese

A synopsis of each of these presentations are available on our resources page.



March 11, 2014
Tower of Babel

Do you know how Babel points to Jesus Christ? We viewed a video from Answers in Genesis in March which does just that.

An exciting new video "The Tower of Babel: Can the "Story" be trusted today?" answers the most important questions about the Tower of Babel in Genesis and the intriguing topics related to it.

Many Christians, including many theologians and academics believe the events the Bible describes at Babel are myths or legends, and need to be reinterpreted. They attack the account, saying it cannot possibly be based on fact. But are these assaults on the Bible warranted? Apologetics expert Bodie Hodge says the Bible is accurate and answered such questions as:
*Who built the Tower of Babel?
*What did it look like?
*Who was Nimrod and what was his part in the rebellion?
*Did the continents split at the time of Babel?
*Why did God confuse the people with multiple languages?
*By what means did the people travel?
*Where did all the different people initially go?
*Why the sudden decrease in longevity?
*What do extra-biblical sources say of a language split?
*How does Babel point to Jesus Christ?

The Babel account can be trusted as written, and it is a key to understanding evangelism and the lands and people of the world today! After viewing this video we had spirited debate about whether the videos interpretation fo the separating of the continents occurred only during the flood or for hundreds of years thereafter. We would endorse this video as a thought provoking exercise!



February 11, 2014
Dave Nutting, Alpha Omega Institute

Dave & Mary Jo Nutting are the Directors of Alpha Omega Institute. They were college math and science instructors when they first grappled with the problems of evolution and became convinced of the evidence for Creation. Their personal contact with students convinced them of the importance of the issue, not only in science, but in evangelism and Christian growth. Since founding AOI in 1984, they have spoken extensively throughout the USA and overseas to young and old alike.

Dave gave us multiple examples of how man continually copies designs in nature because God has already worked out problems we wish to solve today in engineering, medicine and many other fields, and God has done so far better than our best attempts and far beyond our abilities to duplicate at times. Design in nature points to an Intelligent Designer, not random chance and accidents. These fascinating examples from the living world support the claim that
"The evidence cries out: Creation!"

January 14, 2014
Set in Stone

"Set in Stone" from Truth in Science and Illustra Media, takes the viewer on a visual odyssey of discovery shot in high definition on location around Britain. It takes us to spectacular scenery, awe inspiring landscapes and beautiful coastlines. It presents evidence for Earth's catastrophic past to enable the viewer to ask important questions.

According to modern geology, our world is over four and a half billion years old, and its geological features have been sculpted over vast eons of time. Everyone knows that Planet Earth is unimaginably ancient. It's common knowledge that geological forces have acted slowly over millions of years to form the rocks beneath our feet. But what if what everyone 'knows' is wrong?

Were the rocks around us formed slowly and gradually - or suddenly during catastrophic events? Did the history of the world unfold over vast eras of time or much shorter periods? And what do the rocks really tell us about the geological history of our world? Our evaluation of this video was very positive we believe it would be an invaluable educational tool for high school education.

Flight - The Genius of Birds

"Avian flight requires a cause that's able to visualize a distant endpoint and bring together everything necessary to achieve that endpoint. Only intelligence is capable of that kind of causal process."

Paul Nelson, Philosopher of Biology

FLIGHT: The Genius of Birds marks the launch of Illustra Media's new documentary series The Design of Life. Each episode explores a different realm of the animal kingdom and the remarkable biological systems that make life on Earth possible.

Filmed in North America, England, Peru, Greenland, and Antarctica, FLIGHT probes the mysteries and mechanisms of a bird's anatomy, instinct, and embryology to reveal stunning provisions essential for life in the skies.

We saw a hummingbird's unique skeletal, muscular and metabolic systems - all vital to its spectacular aerial acrobatics... The endurance and navigational abilities of an Arctic tern as it travels from pole to pole during the longest migration on the planet... The instinctive strategies that enable a flock of 300,000 European starlings to evade predators at break-neck speeds... The elaborate network of a million component parts that make a feather an aerodynamic masterpiece. And much more.

The poet William Blake wrote that to see an eagle in the air is to observe "a portion of genius." In FLIGHT the ingenuity of a bird's behavior and biology showcase unmistakable evidence for design, purpose, and plan. They are displays of genius best explained by intelligence and mind. They are the unmistakable marks of our Creator!

We found this video both visually stunning and well paced. It outlined a variety of evidences which only point to a Creator who is the "Genius" behind the creation of each bird kind! We whole heartily recommend this video to all.



November 11, 18 and 25, 2013
SABBSA at R.O.C.K. Fellowship and Co-op

We have been asked by R.O.C.K. to provide three creation presentations to the 4th through 6th grade creation science class at their home school co-op in Floresville, Texas.

Scott Lane will present the following creation presentations to R.O.C.K. at 11 am each Monday:
November 11 - "God, Man and Dinosaurs"
November 18 - Conclude "God, Man and Dinosaurs" and present
"Animals Which Defy Evolution"
November 25 - Question and Answer Session



November 12, 2013
Bruce Malone with Logos Research Associates

Bruce Malone presented "The Red Record" revealing God's creation account in American Indian culture. This evidence along with the Chinese ideograph evidence solidifies that the Genesis account was the first creation account across our world. The parallels and duplications of the "Red Record" with the Genesis account are both significant and striking!

Bruce has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. He is an author, speaker, teacher, founder and director of "Search For the Truth" and a Logos Research Ambassador.

Bruce retired from Dow Chemical after 27 years as a chemical engineer, to do creation ministry. He was the key inventor of 18 issued patents and has four patents pending. He is the author or co-author of 3 books on evidences of creation (2 more in progress). He has published 60,000 books and DVDs now in circulation, is the producer of 200 radio programs, and Founder and Executive Director of Search For the Truth Ministries. Bruce is one busy guy!



October 15, 2013 at Castle Hills FBC
Dr. Robert Carter, Creation Ministries International

The main event for October was a special presentation by Dr. Robert Carter of CMI at Castle Hills FBC Grace Chapel entitled "Adam and Eve: Myth or Reality?"

In this science packed multimedia presentation, Dr. Carter presented genetic evidence for the reality of Adam and Eve. Genetic evidence shows that we came from one woman and one man and only one race of people which is consistent with the biblical account! Further, Dr. Carter showed that the human genome and in fact the genomes of all living organisms are far too complex to have ever occurred by chance evolution! DNA's design testifies that there was a Creator!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On our regular meeting night on Tuesday, October 8th
SABBSA Board Member Terry Read
presented an updated version of his talk
"Darwinism: Science or Religion?" In this talk Terry showed that Darwinism-
1. Is Materialistic Philosophy.
2. Requires Inconsistent Thinking.
3. Is Bad Science.
4. Does not fit what we observe, but the Biblical Worldview does.

If you would like to have Terry come to your church or organization with this important presentation just contact us at info@sabbsa.org



September 10, 2013-
John Pendleton, Creation Evangelist to Latin America

In September, we had an old friend talk to us. We asked Creation Evangelist to Latin America John Pendleton to give us an update on his pterodactyl hunt. He detailed what has been done so far and enumerated the steps he will take once he raises $97,000 to fund his next try at capturing one.

In addition, John updated us on what he experienced at last month's International Conference on Creationism in Philadelphia which we at SABBSA sponsored his attendance.

Finally, John presented to us the stories of four creation scientists: Robert Boyle, Matthew Maury, George Washington Carver and Charles Babbage. These men and their scientific careers exemplify the major role a belief in God has historically played in the development of science and still should today!



August 13, 2013-
"The Discovery of Genesis in the Chinese Language"

In August, we had a program devoted to the findings of Rev. C. H. Kang and
Dr. Ethel Nelson who found fascinating amounts of the Genesis creation account imbedded in the original symbols which form the Chinese language. Chinese ideographs (word pictures) were first formed in 2500 BC, and yet they contain the Genesis account as if they were reading out of the Bible. This inspite of the fact that these symbols were made 1100 years before the first five books of the Bible were written!

Not only did these facts astound us, but so did the accuracy with which the Chinese language formed 4500 years ago transmitted the story of the creation as revealed in Genesis. This is evidence which shows that the Biblical creation account is the first creation account and the one all other creation stories were based off of. It shows God's protection of His word and His account of the creation that it could be so magically protected by word of mouth for the 1100 intervening years till the Bible was put together by Moses and then for 3400 more years by human transmission. And it showed a piece of the evidence for the dispersion from Babel.



August 20, 2013- SABBSA R.O.C.K.ed the Witte

Our thanks to the Wilson County home school group (R.O.C.K. Fellowship and Coop.) to allow us act as tour guides for them as they toured the Witte Museum's Dinosaur Exhibit on Tuesday, August 20th. We had the joy of escorting 43 members of this group through the Witte and explaining each and every exhibit from a creationist perspective. Why we even got a thank you from one of the Witte docents for our efforts.



July 9, 2013- "The Origins Film Series"

In July we viewed the last two segments of the classic "Origins Film Series" as it has been recut for DVD. Our evaluation of the entire series was that this is still a very viable film series with a wealth of truthful information packaged in a very good format.

We watched "The Origin of Mankind." This video dispels the "ape-man" myth by uncovering errors, hoaxes and misinformation about the supposed "missing links." This video shows that there is still no solid evidence that humans evolved from animals. The evidence suggests rather that man has existed from the beginning.

We also watched "The Fossil Record." This video asks the question: "What do most fossils really prove?" This fast moving documentary covers thought provoking discoveries related to the Grand Canyon, geology, fossilization, "missing links," coal formation, a worldwide flood and more. Scientists suggest that the Earth's fossil record provides more evidence against Evolutionism than for it. The only problem we saw in these videos was the occasional wild 1980's clothing!



June 11, 2013- "His Wisdom in Our Cells"

Our program in June concluded a two month series of presentations on the mysteries and workings of the human genome and marvels inside our cells. On May 14 Scott Lane presented information on the most recent evidence on the human genome impacting the creation / evolution controversy. In June we followed this up with a talk by Dr. Daniel Harris on an updated version of the "His Wisdom in our Cells" multimedia presentation.

The May 14 talk included evidence from the "Human Genome Project", the ENCODE Project, ICR's "Species Project", the work of plant geneticist Dr. J.C. Sanford and quick DNA 101 course for the uninitiated. The results will astound you at the incredible complexity of God's creation in our DNA and the utter lunacy of believing this could all have occurred by chance. These special presentations were requested by members of the community in response to our San Antonio Express-News article.



May 14, 2013- "Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome"

Our program in May was a multimedia presentation showing most of the current creationist research in the field of DNA and the human genome. This program included information on: "The ENCODE Project"; several studies on the wide differences in human and chimp DNA; the impossibility of our genome being developed by chance; and the degeneration of our genome and the implications of genome decay both to the theory of evolution and to our species eventual extinction!



April 9, 2013- "The Origins Film Series"

In April we viewed the next two segments of the classic "Origins Film Series" as it has been recut for DVD. Our evaluation of the first two segments, which we viewed in March, is that this is still a very viable film series with a wealth of truthful information packaged in a very good format.

We will watched Segment 3: "Origin of the Life" as it examined the origin of life, how the simplest cell could not evolve by chance and shows us the superb design of God's creation in ourselves. We will also watched Segment 4 called "Origin of the Species." This video gives evidence that living things cannot evolve by mutations, natural selection or any other means.

Our evaluation of these segments was just as positive as we were about the first two segments that this is still a very viable and well done film series

Science Workshop Movies at FEAST in 2013

"Popcorn and a Movie" night will be on the 4th Monday of each month. Below are the movie titles that we have scheduled for each month as well as our guest moderator.

We have had great and enthusiastic crowds all year for this fabulous series and we especially thank our audiences for their excellent questions and participation!)


March 25, 2013 - "Darwin's Dilemma" with Scott Lane handling Q&A
April 22, 2013 - "Metamorphosis" with an added presentation on the Monarch Butterfly

A companion young children's program will also be provided by SABBSA staff!





March 12, 2013- "The Origins Film Series"

Our program in March included short presentations of the current research on
human - chimp DNA comparisons as well as a report on the new
"Dinosaurs Unearthed" exhibit at the Witte Museum.

We then viewed the first two segments of the classic "Origins Film Series" as it has been recut for DVD. The first video is entitled the "Origin of the Universe" and it examines the Big Bang Theory and shows that it is not an exception to the
Law of Entropy (everything is wearing out), but that it clearly violates it.

The second episode is called "Earth: A Young Planet." This video gives many
young Earth evidences, but also includes some of the best explanations of
Carbon 14 and radiometric dating we have, and shows how these methods do not substantiate long ages for the Earth.

We were impressed by how well this video has stood the test of time and remains a viable resource in creation apologetics.




We will bring the "Already Gone" presentation to You!

We strongly recommend the video "Already Gone: Why your kids will quit church and what you can do to stop it."

Statistics reveal a huge disconnect taking place between our children and their church experience. Nationwide polls and denominational reports are showing that the next generation is calling it quits on the traditional church. And it's not just happening on the nominal fringe; it's happening at the core of the faith. In the first scientific study of its kind, the "Beemer Report" revealed startling facts discovered through 20,000 phone calls and detailed surveys of a thousand 20-29 year olds, who used to attend evangelical churches on a regular basis, but have since left it behind.

The results are shocking:
Those who faithfully attend Sunday School are more likely to leave the church than those who don't;
Those who regularly attend Sunday School are more likely to believe that the Bible is less true;
Those who regularly attend Sunday School are actually more likely to defend that abortion and gay marriage should be legal; and
Those who regularly attend Sunday School are actually more likely to defend premarital sex.
And, we are not losing them in college as previously thought, but in middle school!

In this powerful video, popular author Ken Ham and consumer behavior research/analyst C. Britt Beemer combine to reveal trends that must be dealt with now . . . before we lose another generation! The trends are frightening, but Already Gone showed how to win back our families, our churches, and our world!

We have already had one group who have requested an encore viewing of this material for their organization and another church is doing a book study on this material. If you or your organization would also like to see this video or procure the book, please contact us.
