Teno Groppi presents 'Defending the Truth of Genesis', Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014



Teno Groppi to explore

“Evolution or Creation – Which Requires More Faith?”



Whether a person believes the theory of evolution or the account of special creation recorded in the Bible is the best explanation of how the universe and life on earth came into being, each view requires faith.  


Oshkosh Creation Science speaker Teno Groppi will present four different but related topics at an upcoming seminar that will help answer the question of which view requires more faith?  Seminar topics are:

1.    Fresh Fossils – Recent findings of soft-tissue, blood cells, and DNA in dinosaur remains indicate they could not have lived 65 million years ago as evolutionists claim. But could those soft tissues have survived intact for a few thousand years? This session includes new findings of liquid wooly mammoth blood, mosquito blood, and actual dinosaur skin—also demonstrating that dinosaurs and mammoths lived in more recent times.  

2.    Creationary Predictions – In this session, Teno thoroughly challenges the claim that Bill Nye and other evolutionists make that “creationists don’t make scientific predictions.” Teno will cover a range of creationist predictions such as Dr. Humphrey’s magnetic decay prediction of planets to predicting the increase in mutation rates of human genes.

3.    98% Chimp? – Ever hear that our DNA is 98% like the DNA of an ape? Teno will totally refute that claim in this session by discussing the differences between apes and humans. He will also take a humorous look at some other organisms that have similar DNA.

4.    And God said… and it was so! – Teno combines the biblical account of creation with further scientific and archaeological findings to illustrate every detail of every account of the Bible is trustworthy.  Teno also asks, what does a person gain to believe in origins via evolution rather than origins as explained in the Bible?



Teno Groppi has been speaking on the subject of defending the truth and scientific accuracy of the Bible on a part-time basis for over 15 years. He has brought his creation lessons to churches, creation groups, universities and other forums in Wisconsin, across the United States and in three foreign countries as well.  He also runs the Genesis Evidence Ministry (GenesisEvidence.org). 

Teno has an A.A. in computer science and 2 and 3 year certificates from Wyldewood Baptist Bible Institute.  Last year he began speaking on biblical creation on a full-time basis.


Sponsored by the Creation Science Society of Milwaukee, the four session seminar is slated for Saturday, October 25, 2014, 10 AM to 3 PM at Tri-County Baptist Church located at 8040 S. 100th Street (Hwy 100), Franklin, WI. 

The seminars are free and open to the public and can be attended individually. Creation Science Literature and DVDs will be available for sale. Teno Groppi’s large collection of fossils, castings and artifacts will also be on display.

Elm Grove business executive to explore evidence of a loving Creator, April 8, 2014


Gerald Frye, President
of Benefit Services Group, Inc.



Denying the Creator: 
Professing Themselves to Be Wise, They Became Fools

For virtually every clear proof that the universe, and all that is in it, is the product of a loving Creator, evolutionists have a “just so” alternative to force on our culture. They take a deconstructionist approach to the issue, looking at various details of creation and fabricating explanations for how each one must surely have evolved – with each story more absurd than the last. Yet today their ideas are what pass for scientific “thought” everywhere. How is a Bible-believing Christian to respond?

This is the topic that Elm Grove resident Gerald W. Frye will delve into on Tuesday, April 8, 2014.  Sponsored by the Creation Science Society of Milwaukee, Frye’s presentation is slated for 7 p.m. at Brookside Baptist Church, 4470 N. Pilgrim Rd., Brookfield. The presentation is free and open to the public. DVDs and Creation Science materials will be available.

President of the Pewaukee-based The Benefit Services Group, Inc., Frye is a nationally known expert on healthcare issues and a popular creation-science speaker -- known for his engaging, educational PowerPoint presentations.  In this talk, he will provide us with some fascinating and highly useful ammunition. He will:
• Describe elegant natural phenomena, from the Middle Ear Miracle to the Marvel of Bird Navigation.
• Show us how evolutionists attempt to explain these wonders.
• Help us understand how nonsensical their ideas are, especially when they’re viewed in the context of irreducibly complex systems.


If you ever find yourself debating science with unbelievers – or if you simply never tire of learning more about God’s creation – this is a talk you won’t want to miss.


Mr. Frye is president and owner of The Benefit Services Group, Inc. (BSG®), an employee benefit brokerage firm that serves nationwide employers in a variety of industries, and consults for health care systems in Wisconsin and Illinois. He has served for over 25 years in various roles in the insurance and employee benefits industry. Jerry is regarded as an industry innovator and has been a featured speaker at numerous events including the University Conference Services series, CEBS seminars, physician symposiums, employment law seminars and Americans for Prosperity forums. A chemistry and accounting major at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, his professional designations include CLU, ChFC, RHU, REBC and CASL.

April 1, 2014 election picks: Ponto, Mellone, Liotta, Kratoska, Vrana? Brunner?

Here are my spring election picks for Mayor, District 7 Alderman, and Elmbrook School Board with links to more in-depth postings, articles, websites and endorsements. (There are other races on my ballot, but they are uncontested.)  You may look up ward and preview your sample ballot at myvote.wi.gov  and find your Brookfield voting location here. Remember, the polls are open from 7am to 8pm. 

Mayor of Brookfield: Steve Ponto
It may feel like a moment of deja vu in Brookfield, but Steve Ponto and Jeff Speaker are again both on our April 2014 ballot. This time the tables are turned, however, with Ponto being the incumbent and Speaker the challenger.  Is Steve as conservative as I am? No, but I do believe he is the better choice. He brings an air of professionalism to the office, which is a welcome change from the Jeff Speaker aw shucks days of the past.

Alderman 7th District: Lisa Mellone
Lisa Mellone is a treasure. She has the perfect mix of brains, professionalism, grace, work ethic, and energy to do a top-notch job representing her district. Add Lisa's B.A. in Business Administration - Finance and post graduate Paralegal certificate and it is easy to see why she has a skill-set few possess. Her approach with development is particularly admirable. She meets with the neighborhoods and developers many times and manages to balance the wants and needs of each. This was not only true of the recent Underwood Crossing project (Target and Trader Joe's) but also the Moorland McDonald's, and Brookfield Marketplace (Pick 'n Save). 

Read through her endorsements from residents in our district and you will know why Lisa Mellone is the only choice. Here is mine: "Lisa Mellone has definitely raised the bar on what constituents expect from an alderman in District 7. She is dedicated to helping residents when they have  problems and to working with neighborhoods and developers to ensure optimal outcomes on new projects. Lisa works tirelessly for us all, and I am grateful she is willing to serve another term."

Elmbrook School Board

Area III: Jeffrey Liotta
I really appreciate Jeff Liotta's strong opposition to Common Core, and I agree completely that teaching to the test is one outcome of adopting the standard. Standards do drive curriculum!  Jeff Liotta is a former Elmbrook graduate and School Board member, who served in the 1980s.

At-Large: Write-in Jim Kratoska
Jim Kratoska states on his website, "We all have a stake in moderating or eliminating the effect of Common Core (CC) in the Elmbrook system. CC is as much about ideology as it is about education. Many of us have suffered through a variety of educational fads.  My first was ‘new math’, which like CC, taught an ambiguous, convoluted approach that could never be used on a tax form or purchase order; just like the cubes, squares, lines and dots of CC Math..." Please take the time to read through his webpage on Perspective on Education. Be sure to scroll down the entire page to the section of Here's why I am asking for your vote. It contains information on how Common Core standards are already being implemented in Elmbrook (without holding hearings.)

Jim has a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and Physics, MS in Business Administration, MA in Philosophy, and has taught graduate and undergraduate courses in the Electrical Engineering and Business Schools at UW-M. 

Jim Kratoska is a registered write-in candidate, which means in the uncontested Area I (correction) At-large race on your ballot, you must connect the arrow next to the write-in line and print in "Jim Kratoska" (Write his name down and take it to the polls or remember this acrostic one clever supporter sent me to help voters spell Kratoska: Kindly Remind All Taxpayers Of Spelling Kratoska At-Large

Kratoska to run as write-in for Elmbrook at-large seat

Area I:  This still is a difficult choice for me. Young Zackary Vrana is running against incumbent Richard Brunner (senior citizen). Both are opposed to Common Core--Vrana adamantly so, which I like; Brunner it seems in general principle. But Vrana is also emphatically for 4K; Brunner again supports 4K in general principle. Vrana would offer a unique perspective on the board, in that he graduated from Brookfield East in 2012 and will graduate from Marquette in 2015.

Hope this was of some help to you. If I learn anything new, I will try to post it Monday night.
