Creation Science Seminar at Camp Timber-lee, Sat. Oct 1, 2011

It's back to school time for the whole family on Saturday, Oct. 1st, when the Creation Science Society of Milwaukee hosts an all day Creation Science Seminar, 9:30am - 4pm, at Camp Timber-lee in East Troy, Wisconsin. All seminars and exhibits are in the Arbor Vitae Science Building.

There will be 4 seminars in all, presented by 2 Wisconsin Creation Science speakers: Keith Robinson, a public school educator, professional musician, and author of the sci-fi trilogy: Origins and Richard Marrano, a creation science speaker, who often speaks on the topics of fossils and astronomy. Here is the schedule:
  • 9:30 - 10:30 am, Countering Evolutionary "Proofs" in Biology Texts - Keith Robinson presents an analysis of the top 10 "proofs" for evolution and how "the evidence is either misinterpreted, misleading, or downright false".
  • 10:45 - 11:45 am, Implications of Evolution on Society - Richard Marrano shares how Evolution influences people's Worldview in Science, Medicine, and Social policy.
Noon Lunch Break
  • 1:15 - 2:15 pm, Implications of a Biblical Creation Worldview - Richard Marrano informs us what nature illustrates about our spiritual world.
  • 2:30 - 3-30 pm, Aliens and Evolution: Exploring the Connection - Keith Robinson asks us to consider, are we alone in the universe? He will also present scientific research that demonstrates some of the flaws in Darwin's theory.

In addition to the seminars, you are welcome to enjoy Timber-lee's Walk Through 6 Days of Creation exhibit and visit the Sea Shell Display. If the kids (or adults) need to burn off a little energy, attendees are welcome to use the camp's volley ball courts, game fields, and/or indoor game room.

The seminars are free and open to the public. You may attend as many or few of the seminars as you wish.

There will be a buffet lunch served in the cafeteria, but you must call to reserve your meal BY September 22nd. Cost is $8.00 per person, $4.00 for children 7 years and under. (Pay at the door.) Call Ken Bahr at 262-255-4643 to reserve. OR, just pack a picnic lunch and dine alfresco.

Whether you are a believer or skeptic of Evolution or Creation, this is a great opportunity to learn more about our world and science. I am particularly interested in learning about the so-called "Proofs" of Evolution in our student's Biology text books. Learning about the influence of an Evolutionary Worldview on society and how nature reveals God's divine nature also interests me. And in light of NASA's recent "plausible outcomes" paper, should aliens come to earth to protect other civilizations, I am going to stick around all day!

Timber-lee is located at N8705 Scout Road, East Troy, Wisconsin. (Directions to camp)
Call 262-642-7345 for more information.

FYI: You might want to pencil in your calendar for CSSM's next 2 events: Tentatively on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2011, a speaker from Institute of Creation Research will give a talk at Zion Lutheran Church, Menomonee Falls, and on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011, Paul Frank will present "Evolution vs. Science/Intelligent Design, at Grace Bible Church, New Berlin. Both will be at 7:15pm. As soon as I know more about the ICR speaker, I will post the specifics.

0% job growth: What didn't work then isn't working now!

That is right, for the first time since Feb. of 1945, the U.S. economy showed NO, Zero, the Big 0 job growth for August 2011.

If that wasn't bad enough, CNBC reports that Heidi Shierholz, economist at the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D.C. said, "Though much attention is being paid to ‘zero job growth’ in August, the real news in today’s numbers is that job growth is worse than in recent months, and the nation continues to produce far fewer jobs than needed to meaningfully reduce the unemployment rate. ...In fact, in some ways the report was less than zero in that weekly hours fell, as did hourly earnings." (My emphasis)

This report just reflects the reality many Americans already know: the US economy is in real trouble. Despite the billions of dollars spend on Stimulus, son of Stimulus and any form of Stimulus out there, these spending programs just aren't cutting it!

Perhaps the only American who still doesn't get this is President Obama, who is expected to propose more of his same failed policies in his coming speech on jobs. No doubt he will tout more spending, more Green jobs, more government.

One can't help conclude, 'We're Spending More Than Ever and It Doesn't Work'. That was the title from a Heritage article from January 14th, 2009. It is worth reading in its entirety.

The title is actually a quote from Henry Morgenthau Jr., "close friend" and "loyal secretary of the Treasury to President Franklin D. Roosevelt--and key architect of FDR's New Deal" in 1939!

Here are some more quotes from Morgenthau, “We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work.”

I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. … And an enormous debt to boot!” (My emphasis)

Sound familiar? What didn't work in FDR's time, isn't working now either.

So I say, after 2 1/2 years of this Obama Administration, we have even more unemployment, and an enormous, unsustainable debt to boot!

It is time for a change.
