Creation Weekend 2023

Creation Weekend 2023

Introductory

It was like old times again! What a pleasure it was to hear our speaker, Dr. Gordon Wilson of New Saint Andrews College in Idaho, address us in person. And everyone appreciated the wonderful venue, Meadowlands Baptist Church, which provided excellent technical assistance as well as an attractive facility. The opportunity to chat with other people and to buy new book and DVD titles, were additional blessings.

The Message of Dinosaur Relationships

The Message of Dinosaur Relationships

Intermediate

Dinosaurs are such showy, dramatic creatures, and their fossils are found in such variety that they have naturally attracted a lot of attention from scientists and the public alike. The question “where did they come from?” has attracted a lot of attention from specialists who seek an evolutionary answer. Nevertheless, a recent article on the topic remarks that relationships (lines of evolutionary descent) between the major groups of dinosaurs have historically been uncertain.  Why would that be? Have we seen any improvement in this situation with new analyses? [David Cerny and Ashley L. Simonoff. 2023. Statistical evaluation of character support reveals the instability of higher-level dinosaur phylogeny. Nature https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-023-35784-3 (2023) 13:9273 open access]

Tour Guide Coming Soon!

Tour Guide Coming Soon!

ChildrenIntroductory

Since the early 1990s, CSAA has produced five editions of a Tour Guide to the Royal Tyrrell Museum. Unlike other guides to similar facilities, this guide includes discussion of most exhibits as they are encountered on a trip through the premises. The fifth and last edition was issued in 2014. It clearly is time for a new edition as there have been many changes since then.

Our guide typically begins with interpretive themes which apply to many of the exhibits. This feature will not change in the new edition. What has changed, is discussion of the preliminary exhibits which occupy about half the space available in the museum. The changes include displays up to the Burgess Shale on the mezzanine.

Creation Weekend 2023

Creation Weekend 2023

Creation with Confidence and Grace
Featuring Dr. Gordon Wilson

Friday, October 27 – Saturday, October 28

Location: Meadowlands Baptist Church
(2215 17 Street NW, Edmonton, Alberta)

Friday 8:00 p.m. Session – Young Earth Creation with Confidence and Grace
This presentation teaches our youth and young adults to be confident and bold, but also gracious about young earth creation. We are happy to be young earth creationists in our Christian/creationist bubble, but do we zip inside our turtle shell when we are around others who are likely to ridicule us? On the other extreme, some creationists are bold but also obnoxious and argumentative with atheistic or theistic evolutionists or old earth creationists. Neither extreme will do. We must be confident in what we believe, but also gracious, and, patient, and quick to listen while we present our reasons for the faith that is in us.

Dr. Gordon Wilson featured speaker at Creation Weekend October 2023
October 27 and 28, 2023
Edmonton, Alberta
Meadowlands Baptist Church

Many people love The Riot and the Dance cinematic celebrations of the creation. Dr. Gordon Wilson is the biologist and narrator of these films. Naturally these wonderful programs call our attention to only a small number of interesting stories from nature. But Dr. Wilson has a great store of interesting discussions on the significance of what nature displays! In his presentations he provides insights on the life cycles, diversity, and relationships of living creatures while at the same time acknowledging the impact of natural evil, a result of God’s curse after the fall of man, which results in predators, parasites and disease impacting all creatures.
