                   The Big Bangs Of Creation

Recently, Steven Lem presented a series of creation science apologetic based on prebiotic biochemistry and the origin of life. In our culture today, from media in news, television shows, movies, print, Internet, in education from preschool to post-doc, and even in many churches, we are immersed in teachings that certain undirected natural processes of evolution generated all of the vast variety of lifeforms we observe in life. Lem demonstrated, however, that the key factors of the biochemical environment disassemble organic molecules at a far faster rate than their natural tendency to assemble. Furthermore, other factors contaminate and destroy any self assembly that might naturally occur and renders these potential life giving molecules unusable sludge. Rather than the nature of biochemistry leading to a naturalistic origin of life in the first cell, nature prevents a natural origin of life at every turn. Lem demonstrated that the naturalistic origin of life by any reasonable measure is mathematically impossible. Given the impossibility of natural processes for the origin of life in the vast array of known life forms, Lem concludes life occurred through supernatural processes.

But, one might ask about the material universe including space, mass, energy and formation of structures from atoms to stars and galaxies. We hear how well the Big Bang cosmology provides a natural explanation for all of the physical universe that is observed. However, this needs a rebuttal because there is another viewpoint.

At the November 3 Greater Houston Creation Association meeting, Robert Brayton will begin a series titled, “The Big Bangs of Creation.” 

The first of this series focuses on cosmology. He examines various cosmological arguments including philosophical, fine tuning, and that the earth, sun, and universe appear to have been designed for intelligent life by an intelligent designer. He further discusses that the God of Genesis and the Bible is that one intelligent designer and creator.

Building on that presentation, and on information previously presented by Lem, Brayton will present the origins of two non-material entities: information and the mind. The topics in these presentations will open your mind and inform you of new concepts of the unfathomable complexity, precision, and forward-thinking design of God's creation. More information on this series is available on his webpage at 

Robert Brayton is an inventor (two U.S. Patents), engineer (Compaq, HP), and professional photographer (CPP, Photographic Craftsman, Professional Photographers of America), volunteer (Insperity Observatory Assistant Director, NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, Civil Air Patrol, ICR Discovery Center), guest speaker (Houston Astronomical Society, North Houston Astronomy Club, Greater Houston Creation Association, Gulf Coast Mensa), and Mensa. He is currently helping astronomers with the Institute for Creation Research and Answers in Genesis to develop a creationist science view of protostar development. 

Please plan to join us for all three presentations: November 3, December 1, and January 5 at 7:00 pm in the Reception Room at Houston's First Baptist Church, or by Zoom (link provided in the red border above). Invite your friends and church leaders - all who desire to increase their understanding of Biblical creation science are welcome. Questions and time for discussion will be provided at the end of each presentation. Snacks and refreshments are provided for those attending in person.

Many Blessings,

NEWWebinar Registration Link

Due to Zoom changes GHCA will be using a Webinar Registration Link in our newsletters. Clicking on the Webinar Registration Link will open a form that requires your name and email address. After one fills in that information and clicks the Register button, Zoom will send you an invitation email providing the Webinar Link that can be used to join the webinar at the time of the meeting. This email will also include an "Add to Calendar" link that might be useful. However, GHCA always mails out a copy of the newsletter on meeting day which will be easy to find. It will be a good idea to register at least15 minutes before meeting time. If anything goes wrong one can always go back to the newsletter Webinar Registration Link and try again.

Examples of Important YEC Scientific Evidences 
Some major examples of physical evidence we point to include:
  • Remains of original soft tissue still found in dinosaur bones. Along with that tissue is C-14 that would decay completely away in less than a hundred thousand years, a tiny fraction of the dinosaur fossil's supposed age.
  • For many years geologists have found C-14 in fossil carbon throughout the fossil record. So, the entire fossil record is less than 100,000 years old.
  • The origin of the information and molecular machinery in the first living self-reproducing cell remains a complete enigma for biologist and biochemists.
  • In the origin of the universe, big bang theory is being recognized as a dead end by increasing numbers of secular scientists. The hypothesized inflation has nothing to start it, drive it forward, or stop it. Without inflation fatal flaws appear with the absence of predicted antimatter, magnetic monopoles, or any means for the whole universe to come to the same precise background temperature. Then the formation of the first stars is as enigmatic as the origin of the first biological cell. Dark matter and dark energy are as enigmatic as the galactic motions they are needed to explain.
At the root of all standard science are many assumptions that may be quite incorrect. At the top is that there is no God. Another is that present process can be used to explain everything in the past. When we look at a canyon we are taught to assume the river at the bottom cut the canyon. But perhaps tectonic events made the canyon and there is a river at the bottom because water always flows downhill. At the root of big bang theory is a pure assumption that has been named the "Cosmological Principle". Perhaps inaccuracies there are responsible for the big bang's multitude of problems.   
There is more about the role of assumptions in science found on our website here. There are many more resources on young earth and young universe evidences here.
