In discussions with skeptics at the university I notice one thing people are eager to hear is evidence for creation. Commonly creationists just speak of why evolution does not work and what are its problems. The skeptics then claim that the creationists don’t have any science favoring their view, just God-of-the-gaps thinking.
Though I too speak and write of flaws in evolution theory, I feel the best evidence is that which provides positive evidence for creation. I have created an acronym to help people remember five evidences for creation. The acronym is IPLOD.
I = information
P = predictions
L = life gives us life
O = order comes from an orderer
D = design comes from a designer
My first message in a church where I am speaking focuses on the subject of: I = Information. This is an extremely powerful argument that every Christian needs to know and understand. It by itself would stop the pro-evolution skeptics from stealing the sheep. We need to provide the people with the armor of truth “Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS” Ephesians 6:14 (NASB)
Kids grow up in Christian homes but too often parents hear the message, “I no longer believe in God, I believe in evolution or science”. Some kids will continue believing in God but have accepted evolution as true and have major issues with the Bible.
Aside from kids, adults too secretly or overtly have come to accept “the overwhelming evidence for evolution”. Evidence Press would like to help the Church counter this trend. It is our mission to produce videos that provide evidence for creation. We want to educate the public on the real nature of the debate and help people see that evolution (changes from primitive life evolved by common ancestors up to humans) never happened and never could happen. It is not scientifically valid and it is not logical, whereas Biblical young Earth creation is both scientifically sound and logical.
People need to learn the slippery meanings of key words such as “science” and “evolution”. They also need to arm themselves with the key phrase, “inference to the best explanation”. God was fully aware before the world began that this problem would be here today. He has provided us with powerful Biblical passages to provide believers with armor to protect against being taken “captive through philosophy and empty deception”. Colossians 2:8
I would like to speak at your church. My message is biblically and scientifically sound. I use a PowerPoint presentation that includes beautiful pictures and enlightening video. The presentation defines the problem and provides the solution. I give positive evidence in favor of creation that is simply irrefutable.
As Christian creationists, observable science (facts) is on our side, just as Biblical truth is on our side. Our problem is getting people exposed to the evidence. The advances in science in just the last 5 years have radically changed the scientific landscape to our favor. Several more icons of evolution have fallen. Junk DNA is not junk any longer. Mitochondrial Eve is no longer evidence for evolution. To get more insight into what I am talking about check out this video with Dr. Kevin Anderson about The 1% Myth.
I am excited about helping people discover the abundant evidence for creation. I am truly passionate about this topic. Many years ago I studied church planting at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. I received my MDiv. in 1989. I love evangelism and sharing the gospel. As you check out our videos you will see that we offer videos covering creation evidence from biology, geology, astronomy, genetics and more. These are all made available for free.

I would like to speak in your church. I promise you what I have to share will be new to almost everyone — and it will be interesting. You can reach me (Jim) at 608.233.5556 or go to our Contact Page.
