Some years prior to moving to the Golden area, I retired from a career as a meteorologist with Environment Canada in Vancouver and Whitehorse, Yukon. I now have more time to explore the latest research on topics such as global warming, the ice age, dinosaur and woolly mammoth extinction and the fossil record. I am organizing a conference in Golden to begin on September 23 at which two respected scientists, Michael Oard, meteorologist formerly with the National Weather Service in Montana and Dr. Emil Silvestru, geologist, will present their ideas on a number of topics involving science and creation.
There will be two presentations Friday, September 23 at 7 PM entitled “Worldwide Evidence for Noah’s Flood” and “Rocks Aren’t Clocks”; two Saturday, September 24 at 10 a.m. entitled Dinostopia: The True Story of Dinosaurs” and “The Ice Age: Only the Bible Can Explain It”; a geology field trip to the Kicking Horse Canyon Rest Area at 1:30 p.m., two presentations Saturday at 7 PM entitled “Is Man the Cause of Global Warming?” and “Climate, Christianity and Change: How Convenient is the Truth?” and a final one Sunday at 10:30 a.m. entitled “Relevance of Genesis to the Gospel”. The title of the event is “Science and Creation Conference, September 23-25, 2011”. It will be held at the Golden Pentecostal Church, 717 10th Street South. All are invited and there is no charge. Pastor Jim Dorst and I are the contacts for the event.
