Created in His Image: Its Meaning and Implication

Daniel Wilson

At the pinnacle of God's creation, He made humanity in His Image and according to His Likeness. The implications and relevance of this truth are many and varied, and the prudent student of the Bible will find great reward in unearthing its meaning.

Can We “See” the image of God in the Fossil Record?

Todd Wood

The image of God has been described in many ways by theologians, but one thing seems certain: it’s not a particular feature of our skeletons! So when we examine the fossil record of ancient humans and “ape-men”, how do we determine exactly what is human and what is animal? One way might be to examine several lines of evidence that point towards our God-given role as His image-bearers.
In this talk, we will survey 6 different lines of evidence showing human ingenuity and dominion over creation: controlled use of fire, advanced toolmaking, art, care for the infirm, intentional burial, and exploration of the world. Armed with these tests, we will examine different hominid fossil forms, and see how we can distinguish apes from true humans, made in God’s image.

The Geology of the Post-Flood World

Marcus Ross

After the Flood ended, God commanded Noah and his family to "be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth" (Gen 9:1). As humans began to spread over the earth, what was it like? Geology provides us with the right tools to understand the human fossil record as evidence of post-Flood migration and development.

The Image and Redemption

Daniel Wilson

The gospel or "good news" of Jesus Christ centralizes God's plan of redemption for humanity in the Son's death, burial, and resurrection. Further, God's Word weaves a broad tapestry of redemption's implications in the phases of salvation history, including: creation, the Fall, redemption, and consummation. Each of these phases is joined together by the thread of "image."

Cave men in the Holy Land???

Todd Wood

Yes, you read that right! So-called "cave men" once walked where Jesus walked - literally! From the caves of Mt. Carmel to the shores of Galilee, we'll examine amazing discoveries that help us trace the history of humanity from the Flood to the arrival of the Canaanites. This journey will take us from the early traces of humanity in the north, where people fished and cooked their food, to the widespread Neandertal presence (including Jesus' "homebase" of Capernaum), to the more familiar signs of culture in the archaeological record, we'll discover how humanity survived AFTER the Flood.

New Views on Adam & Eve: A Young-Earth Creation Assessment

Marcus Ross

Evolutionary models of human origins generally disallow Adam & Eve as the original ancestors of all humanity. In response, two recent proposals by theistic evolutionists have sought to keep Adam & Eve as real people. Wiliam Lane Craig places Adam in the deep past (750,000 years ago) as an ancestor to Homo sapiens and Neandertals, while Joshua Swamidass and Andrew Loke redefine Adam as simply one of our many genealogical ancestors. What are creationists to make of these new proposals, and how should we respond?
