Coming to SABBSA in November

"The Rocks Cry Out" Lesson 5 - Dinosaurs and Dragons

We will continue with "Search for the Truth Ministries'" newest DVD series called the "Rocks Cry Out" through November and December.

Dinosaurs are used extensively to convince children that evolution is a fact and mankind evolved to appear upon the Earth millions of years AFTER dinosaurs went extinct. Yet cultures around the world and throughout history have references to these creatures. This lesson examines how dinosaurs fit into biblical history and reveals recent irrefutable discoveries confirming that dinosaurs were created quite recently - right alongside mankind.

Please join us in November for creation science and biblical apologetics teaching you will find nowhere else in Bexar County.


Please join the San Antonio Bible Based Science Association as we are now "on the air" each Saturday afternoon with "Believing the Bible!" Join us Saturday afternoons at 1:45 pm on radio station KSLR 630 AM - The Word in South Texas.

Here is our schedule of program topics for the fall:

Oct 8 - Age of the Earth
Oct 15 - Test tube Life
Oct 22 - Life from Outer Space
Oct 29 - Age of the Universe
Nov 5 - Why we do this
Nov 12 - Apeman
Nov 19 - Feathered Dinosaurs
Nov 26 - The Geologic Column

There are several ways you can help with this exciting new endeavor. One and always first is pray for this program, for its content and impact. Second, become a sponsor as many of our board members have done and help us defray the $60+ per week costs of putting this program on the air. Third listen to this show on the air and tell your friends and family members so this can reach as wide an audience as possible. Fourth, help us with scripts. We are hoping that our board and other interested and knowledgeable members will both tell us what they would like to hear in future programs as well as help us by writing future scripts and coming on the air with us to make this truly a group effort.

Also, we now have an opportunity to take this program and broadcast it in radio stations across the country. To do that though we need sponsors to underwrite it at the very modest cost of $303 per month. Contact us at 210-861-0454 if you would like to help and expand our ministry in this way.

This program is available on podcast. Go to the KSLR website at KSLR.com and click on "KSLR Podcast" and scroll down until you find us. This will give you the opportunity to share on Facebook or Tweet. Please join us each Saturday at 1:45 pm on radio KSLR 630 AM for "Believing the Bible."

This Fall at SABBSA

Please join the San Antonio Bible Based Science Association this winter as we view the exciting new Creation video series from "Search for the Truth Ministries" called, "The Rocks Cry Out." Join us the second Tuesday of each month as we go completely through this new creation teaching tool.

Here is our schedule of programs this winter:

November 8 - The Rocks Cry Out: Dinosaurs and Dragons
December 13 - The Rocks Cry Out: The Age of Creation
January 10, 2017 - The Principle

Science Workshops at FEAST in Fall 2016

SABBSA president Scott Lane will present selected portions of his creation series to audiences at the FEAST Science Workshops in 2016 and 2017. All presentations will be at 6:30 pm on the fourth Monday's of each month. A companion young children's "hands on" program is also provided each night. The fall schedule is shown below:

September 26 - "The DeFaithing of America" - This multimedia presentation gives participants an understanding of how two societal shifts played out in America over the past 90 years. How did we go from a nation where in 1925 it was illegal to teach evolution in public schools to today where it is illegal to teach God's creation in schools? Parallel to this phenomenon another societal shift was happening. America was undergoing a systematic move to eliminate God from all phases of our society. How did that occur? We examine that parallel societal shift as well.

October 24 - "Introduction to Creation Theories" - this presentation covers the full continuum of theories between evolution and creation. It includes capsules on the compromise theories of scientific creationism, gap theory, day/age theory, intelligent design, progressive creationism, and theistic evolution. It sets the stage for all further presentations.

September 13, 2016

"The Rocks Cry Out" Lesson 3 - Design Testifies to Creation

Lesson 3 asked the question, "How can we know if design is the result of natural processes or intelligence?" This lesson traveled from Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore to the Badland National park and Mt. Rushmore to show how the design of life testifies to God as its designer. We took a closer look at the supposed mechanisms driving evolution (mutations and natural selection) to show the impossibility of these forces driving life upward in complexity. While we were not overly impressed by the metaphors used, we were impressed by the evidence in nature which shows the Creator's designs!

October 11, 2016

"The Rocks Cry Out" Lesson 4 - Noah's Flood and Geology

The starting assumption of modern geology is slow processes and lots of time to create the sedimentary rock layers of the Earth. Therefore, modern geologists cannot even consider the possibility of a world-covering flood which would have created these rock layers rapidly and recently. This lesson examined the Top 7 Evidences for the rapid deposition of the rock layers of the Earth and the implications of leaving this Biblical model out of our thinking. We found this to be a very well done and pointed indictment of contemporary geology and very supportive of the biblical timeline. We also previewed one episode of the "Debunking Evolution" video series from Genesis Apologetics and evaluated it to be a great tool for youth groups.

August 9, 2016

"The Rocks Cry Out" Lesson 2 - The Red Record

We enjoyed watching the first two videos from Bruce Malone of "Search for the Truth Ministries" newest DVD series called the "Rocks Cry Out" in July. We will continue that series through the fall.

In August we viewed Lesson 2 of this exciting new DVD series called the "Red Record." The Red Record reveals an astounding confirmation of the Biblical account of early earth history - including creation, the entrance of death, the worldwide flood, intriguing references to the post flood ice age, and other details of earth history. This lesson recounts the captivating story of the discovery/translation/preservation of this remarkable, yet little known, Native American document and provides a fascinating confirmation of how the ice age fits into Biblical history.

July 12, 2016

"The Rocks Cry Out" Lesson 1

Very, very few people have ever seen a fascinating, visual presentation of the evidence supporting a Biblical creation viewpoint. The Rocks Cry Out creation curriculum provides the perfect tool for you to change this for your church or small group. "Search for Truth Ministries" has spent $30,000 filming the first six lessons of "The Rocks Cry Out" creation curriculum. They believe this will be the most impactful creation curriculum ever produced. This curriculum works equally well as a church class for youth/adults or as a study for home schoolers and small fellowship groups. It is also enjoyable to simply watch with family and friends.

This is not just a class on the evidence for creation. The goal of this study is to increase participants trust in the reliability and accuracy of God's Word. In this way they are far more likely to share their faith with others.

In July we viewed Lesson 1 of this exciting new DVD series. Lesson 1 covers how the most basic laws of science confirm the absolute fact that there is a creator responsible for creation. Using visual demonstrations of how we can know that neither the universe nor life could have made itself, this lesson reveals how leaving this reality out of our thinking ultimately destroys a culture's trust in Christianity and blinds people to the truth.

Testing Evolution: Exposing Flaws

Are humans and chimps only 1 to 2% different?
Is the human genome 98% junk, as claimed?
Is Mitochondrial Eve evidence for evolution?
What are some recent discoveries regarding our chromosomes?
What should be done about creation in public schools?
Does the creation topic really matter?

Evolutionary thought has changed a great deal in the last few years. It was once thought that human DNA is primarily junk. For many years Mitochondrial Eve was presented as compelling evidence for evolution. In addition, the 1 to 2% difference between humans and chimps was declared as fact. However, recently these arguments have been completely reversed. This video reveals the rest of the story. Jim Bendewald, MDiv, interviews Dr. Kevin Anderson in this video revealing the amazing turn of events.

We viewed this video in June and found it to be very enlightening. It got us current on many of the evidences for creation and against evolution from the biological sciences. One fact from this video which you will not hear discussed in the media, is that evolutionists will not even talk about the "Eve Syndrome" evidence anymore because it so damning for evolution. The Eve Syndrome evidence uses mitochondrial DNA to show that we all came from one first woman, just as the Bible describes. However, this data does more than that. The change in female mitochondrial DNA, when compared to known mutation and variation rates gives a date of just 6000 to 8000 years ago that Eve lived and the human race began! This data is so pro-biblical creation and against evolutionary theory that evolutionists will not even bring the subject of Eve up today!

This and much more was in this video, which we recommend.

The Origin of Old-Earth Geology & Christian Compromise in the 19th Century-Part II

The church's compromise on biblical authority began before Darwin. This eye-opening talk by historian Terry Mortenson with Answers in Genesis shows that biblical geologists defended biblical history (and exposed the fallacies in an old earth) in the 19th century and before, but the church refused to listen. We watched part I in January and found that material so compelling that we watched part II of Terry Mortenson's talk at our May meeting. we found its evidence very compelling. However, it saddens us to find out how long man has been trying to repress the truth of the Creator.

April 12, 2016

Update on Pterodactyl Hunt and Cuban Ministry

Our old friend and creation evangelist to Central America, John Pendleton gave us an update on his Pterodactyl hunt and plans for another visit to Cuba at our April meeting. John gave us a fascinating evening and we ask that you pray for his evangelistic efforts both in Central America and in Cuba where evangelism is still very challenging and restricted.

What you aren't being told about Astronomy, part III: Our Created Universe

Many in the creation field have been waiting on this video for three years. Part three of Spike Psarris' ground breaking video series, "What you aren't being told about Astronomy" is finally here and we viewed it during our March meeting. This exceptional video has two main focuses. It analyzes the secular "Big Bang theory" and shows it is not science, but philosophy which is not supported by scientific evidence. It then shows how well the biblical account of the created universe coincides with current scientific observations. Although this video is a little long, it does not disappoint, as Spike makes a great case for a God created universe being the far more scientific theory than the Big Bang model.

Science Workshops at FEAST in Spring 2016

The following is a schedule of the presentations for this year's Science Workshops to be held the fourth Monday nights at FEAST at 6:30 pm.

"Made in His Image" starts January 2016!
A four-episode DVD series on the complexities of the human body Following the ICR's success of their groundbreaking Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis DVD series, the Institute for Creation Research is launching Made in His Image, a new series that will take the audience on a journey through the most complex and miraculous creation on Earth-us.

There is no better example of complex, conscious design than the human body. This awe-inspiring series will explore four of its most extraordinary systems, which are so perfectly designed and masterfully engineered that the viewer will be left with no doubt that we are indeed created by an expert designer, God.

"So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." Genesis 1:27 Produced from a biblical perspective, Made in His Image will inspire audiences by looking at the human body in all its wonder-fully functional, fully human, and fully created in God's image. Featuring medical, engineering, and other experts like Dr. Randy Guliuzza, Made in His Image will fascinate audiences with mind-blowing facts, dazzling imagery, and memorable illustrations. The four episodes will examine the stages of human development and show that everything we need to fulfill God's plan is instilled in us from the first moments of life. Each episode reinforces the knowledge that every human is special to God. He has endowed each of us with unique physical abilities, intellect, and spiritual lives to fulfill His purpose.

January 25, 2016
Episode 1: The Miracle of Birth. This episode shows the amazing development of a child from gestation to birth. Only a masterful creator could have designed a system that allows a child to thrive in a watery world for nine months then suddenly live in an air-breathing environment at birth.

We will also have excerpts from Dr. Guliuzza's "Truth on Tour" series.

February 22, 2016
Episode 2: The Marvel of Eyes. This episode explores the incredibly complicated human visual system and its vital role in our cognitive development from infancy through adulthood.

March 28, 2016
Episode 3: Uniquely Human Hands. This episode reveals the purposeful design of human hands and muscles that gives us unique abilities controlled by a sophisticated nervous system.

April 25, 2016
Episode 4: Beauty in Motion. This final episode illustrates the peak of human ability through athletic performance and revisits the aspects of complex design that confirm divine creation. Christians of all ages will marvel at the complexity of God's creation as revealed in Made in His Image. We hope this series will prompt viewers to worship the greatest Designer of all, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Our Upcoming Schedule at SABBSA in 2016

June, 2016
Testing Evolution: Exposing Flaws - Evolutionary ideas have changed a great deal in the last few years. It was once thought that human DNA is primary junk. For many years "Mitochondrial Eve"was presented as compelling evidence for naturalistic evolution. In addition, the purportedly small 1 - 2% difference between humans and chimps was declared as fact. However, these arguments have recently been completely reversed. This DVD reveals the rest of the story. Jim Bendewald interviews professor of biology Dr. Kevin Anderson in this video revealing the amazing turn of events.

February 9, 2016

The Authority of the Bible II- Prophecy and Statistics

Lanny Johnson with the Alpha Omega Institute spoke to us in February. His presentation focused on the inerrancy of biblical prophecies and authority of the Bible.

A Bible prophecy is not just a prediction about the future - it is a promise about the future. Within the Bible are approximately 2500 prophecies, about 2000 of which already have been fulfilled to the letter-no errors. A look at just a few broad, general examples of fulfilled prophecy and a look at messianic prophecies and the probability of one man fulfilling the major prophecies made concerning the Messiah - showing that coincidence is ruled out by the science of probability. Because the Bible proves to be such a dependable document, we should expect that the remaining 500 prophecies dealing with the "time of the end," will also be fulfilled to the last letter.

This multimedia presentation included the amazingly specific details in the Bible of predictions of what would happen in Tyre, Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia, Edom, Philistia, Sidon and Gaza. It also looked at the statistical impossibility of Christ accidentally or by deceit fulfilling all of the more than 300 Bible prophecies included about the Messiah in the bible, unless He was the true Messiah.

January 12, 2016

The Origin of Old-Earth Geology & Christian Compromise in the 19th Century-Part I (DVD)

To start the New Year we watched a video featuring Dr. Terry Mortenson of Answers in Genesis. This video showed that the church's compromises on biblical authority began before Darwin. This eye-opening talk by historian Terry Mortenson shows that biblical geologists defended biblical history (and exposed the fallacies in an old earth), but the church refused to listen.

We evaluated this presentation as very informative and well researched and documented. We were impressed enough to schedule to watch part two of this talk in April.

At our January meeting we also voted to reinstalled our current Board of Directors and slate of Officers.

December 8, 2015

The Human Body: Divine Engineering (DVD)

Evolutionists say any appearance of design in nature is just an illusion. But how does that stack up to reality?

Dr. Randy Guliuzza, a professional engineer, medical doctor, National Representative for the Institute for Creation Research and a former SABBSA Board Member explores the wonders of the human hand, demonstrating the precise interactions of our nervous systems and muscles that provide its powerful movements. Join Dr. Guliuzza as he unwraps the astounding design features that testify to the engineering genius of our Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ.

December 6, 2015

Creation Ministry International (CMI) coming to San Antonio in December

Keaton Halley a speaker with CMI will be presenting at Calvary Chapel Solid Rock 17018 Silverwood Dr, San Antonio 78232 at 9am and 11am on Sunday, December 6. His topic is "Creation: What's the Big Deal?" CMI has an opening that evening for Mr. Halley to speak at your church. If interested call 1-800-6161CMI(264).

Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus

Dr. Al Johnson and SABBSA will host an encore showing of this highly acclaimed documentary on Thursday, December 3, 7 pm at the December meeting of the Greater Houston Creation Association at Houston's First Baptist Church, in Room 143. Please read the synopsis included with our October 26 showing below for information about this exciting video.

November 10, 2015

Human Design: The Making of a Baby (DVD)

Evolution holds that life descended from a common ancestor through small modifications over long periods of time.

Actual living creatures, however, reveal something different. ICR National Representative Dr. Randy Guliuzza explores the complexities of human reproduction to demonstrate that life couldn't possibly have evolved. He shows that biological systems are fully integrated - they have key parts that fit together for an intended purpose and break down when those parts are altered or removed.

Approaching the subject in a tasteful manner, Dr. Guliuzza takes his audience through the detailed process of reproductive physiology and microscopic anatomy required for the making of a human baby. The inescapable conclusions of design give God all the glory, showing that we are truly "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14).

Our evaluation of this video was that it showed an impresive amount of evidence proving that the miracle of birth is just that. A miraculously designed process which in no possible way could have occurred by chance. It is a glorious testimony to the greatness of our Creator!

October 13, 2015


Bruce Malone, the head of "Search for Truth Ministries" as well a prolific author and creation speaker joined us on October 13 at our monthly meeting. Bruce gave a presentation that night titled "Brilliant" which gave us a glimpse of the material in his new book of the same title. This talk makes it clear that ancient man was "brilliant" and not an ignorant cave dwelling ape man as our secular society believes. This is well in line with the Bible and scientific research and very supportive of our creation worldview.

For the second time in two years Bruce really excelled at giving us a very unique and provocative presentation. He gave us a vivid look at the evidence for ancient man being not the ignorant cave man, but the brilliant creation of God! We recommend both this presentation which is available on video plus Bruce's book of the same name. They are both "Brilliant"!

October 25, 2015

Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus

SABBSA will host an encore showing of this highly acclaimed documentary on Sunday, October 25, 6 pm at Kirby Baptist Church, 5114 Seguin Road, Kirby, TX 78219. Please read the synopsis below for information about this exciting video.

Science Workshops at FEAST, 2015

The following is a schedule of the presentations for this year's Science Workshops to be held the fourth Monday nights at FEAST at 6:30 pm.

September 28, 2015
Dinosaurs and Man: Five Clues to Dinosaur Origins (DVD)
Some say dinosaurs went extinct millions of years ago. Some say dinosaurs evolved into birds. Some say they never really existed. What is a Christian supposed to believe? In this update to What You Haven't Been Told About Dinosaurs, ICR's Brian Thomas provides five clues from rocks, fossils, ancient documents, and Scripture itself that point to the recent creation and co-existence of dinosaurs and man.

October 26, 2015
Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus
Is there proof from the Bible that the Exodus story has played out exactly as it was written? If so where is the proof in the world today that can validate the claims that it happened exactly as Exodus clearly lays out for the reader?

Drawing on the experience of many biblical scholars, curators, archaeologists and scientists, film maker Timothy Mahoney documents his research into this compelling question to uncover whether this exodus of the Israelites truly happened or has the Bible clearly gotten it wrong. He journeys to Egypt, the Middle East, England and more in search for the answers in the documentary Patterns for Evidence: The Exodus. It will take us on a 12-year journey around the world to search for the same answers the world is waiting for and what he finds at the end, well it's up to you to decide if the evidence he uncovers validates what is written in the Bible. Using stunning animations, narrated by Kevin Sorbo, interviews with leading archaeologists like Israel Finkelstein, Kent Weeks, and David Rohl and guest appearances by Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres.

August and September, 2015

Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus

Despite all the archaeological evidence that has been found, people are still trying to figure out where the evidence comes into play regarding the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and everything that went along with that story from the Bible. From the ten plagues that hardened Pharaoh's heart to the pilgrimage of the people for 40 years into the desert, even the fall of Jericho's walls gives us questions.

Is there proof from the Bible that the story has played out exactly as it was written? If so where is the proof in the world today that can validate the claims that it happened exactly as Exodus clearly lays out for the reader?

Drawing on the experience of many biblical scholars, curators, archaeologists and scientists, film maker Timothy Mahoney documents his research into this compelling question to uncover whether this exodus of the Israelites truly happened or has the Bible clearly gotten it wrong. He journeys to Egypt, the Middle East, England and more in search for the answers in the documentary Patterns for Evidence: The Exodus. It will take us on a 12-year journey around the world to search for the same answers the world is waiting for and what he finds at the end, well it's up to you to decide if the evidence he uncovers validates what is written in the Bible. Using stunning animations, narrated by Kevin Sorbo, interviews with leading archaeologists like Israel Finkelstein, Kent Weeks, and David Rohl and guest appearances by Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres.

We evaluated this documentary to be of high quality and of great historical and apologetic value. It gives an exceptional set of archaeological evidences in support of the biblical account of the Exodus.

July 14, 2015

Startling Proofs

In July we saw the video "Startling Proofs" from the makers of the
"Left Behind" movies and as shown on TBN.

In this fast moving docudrama, we saw startling evidence of God's existence, His designs in nature and the His authorship of the Bible!

Startling Proofs features scientists and leading Bible scholars including Chuck Missler, Dave Hunt, Peter and Paul Lalonde, Grant Jeffrey and Dave Breese. This is one video you can share with your unsaved friends and loved ones.

Our evaluation of this film was that it contained a bevy of proofs for God's existence and the authority of His word. We did have some debate on the interpretations of some of the Bible prophecies which were alluded to, but there is nothing unusual about that. All in all this is an excellent video.

June 9, 2015

Formed out of Water and by Water

In the first verses of Genesis, Earth was created with an apparently unbroken surface of water over the "deep". Later the water was divided into a part above and a part below by an "expanse" called "heaven". Still later dry land was brought up out of the waters below. Further in 2 Peter 3:5 we are told that the Earth "was formed out of water and by water". So clearly water played a central role in the physical creation of Earth. Many of us have marveled at these things, but wondered about the details that might be involved.

In 1984 physicist Dr. Russell Humphreys hypothesized that God might possibly have first created matter in the form of water, H2O, with the magnetic spin of the two hydrogen atoms aligned. That would establish a specific initial value of magnetic energy in the Earth or other planets. This initial value, along with the nature of the core of each planet, would determine each planet's magnetic field and decay rate. So Humphreys made estimates of the magnetic fields we should find as then future space probes made measurements. Over the years Humphreys' predictions have been validated with the measured values by space probes and on the whole very far better than the predictions made by evolutionary planet formation theories.

On June 9th, Richard Stepanek from Alpha Omega Institute presented his talk titled Water, Water, Everywhere! He showed us an abundance of amazing facts about the role of water in the creation around us that the materialists simply would not expect. This is an amazing and God honoring presentation for layman and scientists alike.

A 12,000 year Timeline for the Bible, Part II with Dr. Daniel Harris

Creationists have debates within their own ranks. One of those is just how young is the earth? Does the Bible give us any hints as to whether a strict 6000 year time frame is implied or whether a somewhat longer time frame could be reasonably applied to the text? To bring this discussion into sharp view, we will have two of our board members present at our March, April and May meetings on this topic.

This month, at our regular meeting on May 5th, Dr. Daniel Harris gave us part II of his views on how a 12,000 year timeline better fits scientific data, historical records and the Bible's text. This follows a great presentation on March 10th by Dr. Carl Williams who espouses a more traditional 6000+ year time frame for the Earth and Bible history.

March 10, 2015

A 6000+ year Timeline for the Bible with Dr. Carl Williams

Dr. Carl Williams gave us a great beginning to our two month investigation as to the evidence for varying timelines which fit both the biblical text as well as historical and scientific data. Dr. Williams' presentation showed the wide vatiety of "traditional" interpretations of biblical timelines which can vary by as much as 3000 years! He also gave us a look at the differences between the several manuscripts from which our Bible was constructed and how they agreed and disagreed with one another on dates and ages which scholars have depended upon to arrive at their timelines for Earth history.

Dr. William's talk was both evangelical and informative. He made the point that our focus should be on the Creator and His plan for Christ and not debateable things as scripture warns us of. But, also he makes an interpretation point that the Hebrew word "yalada" from the Old testament cannot be interpreted as descent from an ancestral father but must be strictly interpreted as meaning "bore" or "to bear" insinuating that it must be from the seed of the true father. Dr. Harris will debate this point and many others at our April meeting.

February 8 - May, 2015

Answers in Genesis in San Antonio

Bryan Osborne, a relatively new speaker with AiG did a fine job giving multiple presentations to hundreds of people and youth last month at Fellowship Bible Church. Our thanks to the church and Pastor Swartz who is very committed to this teaching! We also thank them for allowing us to help publicize this event.

February 10, 2015

Evolution's Achilles' Heels

Like no other work that we are aware of, fifteen Ph.D. scientists collaborated to produce a coordinated, coherent, powerful argument. All of the contributors received their doctorates from similar secular universities as their evolutionary counterparts. Each is a specialist in a field relevant to the subject: Natural selection, origin of life, geology, genetics, radiometric dating, the fossil record, cosmology, and ethics.

Evolution's Achilles' Heels directly demolishes the very pillars of the belief system that underpins our now-secular culture-evolutionary naturalism. It's coupled with the Biblical command to reach the lost with the Bible's Good News. In a nutshell, it's a comprehensive outreach tool like no other.

This DVD has visually stunning animations and dramatic footage help to show how the theory's supposed strengths are, in fact, its fatal flaws-Evolution's Achilles' Heels.

To view the trailer for this film go to

Our group viewed 75 minutes of this video in February and found it to be of high quality and a good creationist tool. One good suggestion is that if used as a class study this video would best fit over perhaps three meetings with discussion time after each section.

4th Mondays in 2014 - 2015
FEAST Science Workshops
Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis

This year our FEAST Science Workshops will feature the new 12-part series from the Institute for Creation Research entitled "Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis." Viewing this series, you'll walk away with a fresh understanding of the sometimes difficult-to-comprehend issues surrounding creation. Our dynamic host will lead you through discoveries of truth in awe-inspiring locations around the country. We will visit gardens and nature sites throughout Texas, the Grand Canyon, Dinosaur National Monument in Utah, and the Matanuska Glacier in Alaska.

From discussions on dinosaurs to the Ice Age, the series covers the origin of the universe, the origin of man, design, fossils, Noah's Flood, the age of the earth, ancient civilizations, and more. We invite you to spend fourth Mondays with us at FEAST, 25 Burwood Lane, San Antonio, TX, 78216 at 6:30 pm for this series of videos with two episodes shown each night along with expert commentary and question and answer sessions from the staff of the San Antonio Bible Based Science Association.

We had a great "kick off" to this series with a large and enthusiastic groups both in the adult and young children's seminars. In the adult seminar we watched session 1 of the series "Design-Chaos or Creation?" This episode explored the age-old question: Was the universe designed or is it a product of random chance? The first installment begins with a memorable and engaging introduction to the fundamentals and flaws of evolutionary theories and contrasts them with Scripture that illuminates the undeniable evidence of God's creation.

Origins of Life-Plants and Animals. The second episode that evening asked the question, Where did life come from? Was it a chemical accident in a primordial pond or a living microscopic stowaway on an ancient asteroid? Or was it something more intentional? This episode explored the mystery of how life on Earth began. Our experts analyzed the prevailing theories of life's origins and test them against known natural laws, recent genetic evidence, and other data that point to the divine origins of plants and animals.

The following is an overview of the topics that will be covered in this series and the dates on which they will be shown.

Origins of Life-Humans. One of the most controversial questions in all of science centers on where humans came from. Did we evolve from the animal kingdom, or were we uniquely and divinely created to hold stewardship over the earth? This episode examines some of the prevailing theories about mankind's origins and presents fascinating new evidence from genetic and medical research that indicates we've been misguided by 150 years of evolutionary theories and teachings. Fossils.

What does the fossil record actually reveal about the history of life on Earth? In this episode, we explore the secrets of the past revealed by fossils and expose how appearances can be deceiving. Astonishing new discoveries from dinosaur fossils cast doubt on mainstream assumptions about the age of the earth and suggest that cutting-edge science is only beginning to uncover the wisdom and complexity of God's design.

Noah's Flood. There is little disagreement among scientists that the earth's climate and geology have been drastically altered by water since the beginning of time, but they puzzle over how and when this occurred. Does the great worldwide Flood described in Genesis explain natural wonders like Grand Canyon? Or was it the result of gradual erosion over eons of time? Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis takes this question on location, where one of the world's leading experts in Flood geology puts the evidence on display.

Age of Earth. How old is Earth? Understanding the approximate age of the earth is more than an intellectual curiosity-it's actually a critical issue of faith. By taking a closer look at the scientific evidence, this episode reveals why basic assumptions about Earth's age may be flawed. A recent, explosive example provides further evidence that the earth's ancient past may not be so ancient after all.

February 23, 2015
Dinosaurs. Dinosaurs captured our imaginations long before the field of paleontology was established in the 1700s. Dragons, winged serpents, and giant behemoths have inhabited folklore around the world for centuries. Most modern scientists claim dinosaurs became extinct eons ago, while ancient historians and monster-hunters have recorded more recent sightings. Did dinosaurs really die off before the age of man? This segment explores surprising evidence that dinosaurs may have walked the earth with early humans and explains why that matters to Christians.

The Ice Age. Most scientists agree that the earth has experienced long periods of time when glacial ice covered the continents as a result of drastic changes in geology and atmosphere. What worldwide cataclysm could have caused such a dramatic change in Earth's climate? How did it affect the development of civilization? Could it happen again? We will dig into the causes and effects of the Ice Age and what it tells us about the world we live in today.

March 23, 2015
Ancient Civilization. If all living things except Noah and his family were destroyed in the Flood, how and when did civilizations rebuild? Where did the Neanderthals come from? How did the great nation of Egypt develop? Are the Bible stories of Moses and the nation of Israel historical? Using the latest discoveries in biology, medicine, archaeology, and anthropology, this episode unearths man's past to help us uncover the truth.

Origin of the Universe. Modern technology enables scientists and stargazers to explore distant parts of the universe that ancient astronomers only dreamed of. New physics discoveries provoke fascinating and often fanciful theories about how the universe began but offer no tangible evidence. By applying the laws of empirical science and mathematics to the question of origins, it becomes apparent that the biblical account of creation is startlingly accurate. Once again, science confirms Scripture.

April 27, 2015
Uniqueness of Earth. How is it possible that we exist at all, much less on a planet filled with so much beauty and complexity, hanging upon nothing in the endless void of space? Is the earth unique or merely, as Carl Sagan once said, "an insignificant planet of a humdrum star, lost in a galaxy" among millions of galaxies? By analyzing the uniqueness of Earth's-and our own-position in the universe, we discover more about God's eternal plan.

The Big Picture. Over the course of these episodes, we will guide the viewer through profound mysteries that have puzzled man for centuries. This final episode reflects on the key questions and evidence and asks the viewers to consider what they have witnessed and learned. Having seen evidence that confirms the biblical account of creation, not just on terms of faith but on terms of science, viewers should acknowledge a greater security and confidence in the Bible's message and purpose.

Castle Hills First Baptist School

SABBSA President Scott Lane gave two full days of presentations at the Castle Hills First Baptist Church School on February 5th and 6th of 2015. Thanks so much to Castle Hills for inviting us, being such a gracious host and for affording us an unbelievably great opportunity to help educate and interact with our youth who are our future. We were able to communicate a biblical interpretation of dinosaurs, biology, and give great evidence for the authority of God's word to about 400 students and faculty.

Included in these presentations were two geared specifically for elementary age children K-4. These were talks on where dinosaurs fit into the Bible and "Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution." These presentations were well received by the younger kids and we would recommend them for your school or church's young children.

The Case for a Creator

Has Science Discovered God?

When Lee Strobel was a high school freshman, science convinced him that God didn't exist. Since then, however, incredible scientific discoveries have not only helped restore Lee's faith, but have strengthened it.

Lee is not alone. More and more scientists, confronted with startling, cutting-edge evidence from many areas of research, no longer believe the universe just "happened" or that life arose by mere chance. Behind a universe of staggering complexity, they are seeing signs of a Master Designer.

Are your science textbooks still telling you the same "facts" that Lee's did years ago? Prepare to be astonished by what some of today's most respected experts have to say about:

The birth of the universe
Darwinism and the origin of life
The astounding fine-tuning of the cosmos
Amazing molecular machines and DNA research

Weigh the evidence for yourself. Then consider this question: Could it be that the universe looks designed ... because it is?

We evaluated this to be an overall good evangelistic tool with an ID bent. While we would take issue with its acceptance of the Big Bang and deep time, the other design information shown makes this a good tool to show a disbelieving public the clear evidence of God's existence.
