I also wish to thank those who have encouraged me by telling me that this presentation has made a difference. Wiebe February, 1997 This is an abstract of the presentations on the creation/evolution issue that follow: As design demonstrates the existence and capability of a designer, the inherent design in life, the earth and the universe implies the existence and capability of its Designer.
The best source of information regarding a design can be had by inquiring of the designer.
The laws of biochemistry, probability and statistics, and basic information theory are against it. But no one has ever shown them to be beneficial, so as to result in complex and sophisticated designs. Random genetic mutations) The "survival of the fittest" clause is a tautology and success does not imply complexity.
Natural selection shouldn't be expected to result in functionally different or more complex designs. Animals vary based on coded genetic information that is already there.
A designer provides better and more authoritative information about his design than the design does about itself.
In the case of life on earth, the Designer has unmistakenly identified Himself and revealed specific information about some of the circumstances surrounding creation. A defense of Creation) Chance does not cause anything.
In fact, within the laws of probabilities and statistics we should not expect order and selection to be the result of "random" processes. ) Effects caused by random genetic mutations (that is, those that are phenotypically expressed) are almost always bad.
Order and selection are the result of directed, non-random causes. "Chance" is not a cause) Living matter does not and could not have been spontaneously generated from non-living matter. Once in a while they produce some interesting benign abnormalities.
They must also keep a level head in the face of some vicious attacks and diatribes that will be directed against them, as is advised in the scriptures (1 Peter -16).
Furthermore, the process of fossilization should not be expected to occur gradually, but better fits within the model of a geological catastrophe. Fossilization) Burial order does not imply ancestry.
The various stratified layers of rock do not have dates attached to them.
One must get past the arguments ad populum (that its popularity counts for something), ad hominem (that if you attack the person making the argument, this counts for something), and especially ad baculum (that there are people who have the clout to decree it as true), to ask the key questions and challenge the unsubstantiated assumptions and thinking of those who would hold to the evolution position.
Today there are an increasing number of anti-creationist authors who are producing books and periodicals that make this relatively brief presentation insufficient to deal with all the points in dispute.

As a preface to this document, I want to point out that it is a shame that we have to continue to refute the same arguments that evolutionists keep bringing up over and over again in their attempts to argue against the fact of creation, which fact has been well established since the day the earth was created ex nihilo several thousand years ago.
