Maricopa County Events
► November 18 – 7 PM – Phoenix: Why Is the Bible from God? "Hey, humanity! You gotta ask yourselves a question: 'Do we feel lucky?' Well, do ya?" Bill Morgan, a professional engineer, raises that question and supplies amazing information in the Bible showing humankind was either really lucky ... or God was at work. Which is it? Known for his unassuming, personable style, Bill never fails to deliver aha! insights. One night only - don't miss it.
► November 19 – 7:00 PM – Tempe: Human Reproduction. Way beyond "the birds and the bees," Bill Morgan's PG-rated presentation offers 15 amazing facts about the miraculous abilities of sperm, eggs, Fallopian tubes, the placenta, and more, etc. Using examples and terms clear and understandable for everyone, Mr. Morgan develops the picture and politely challenges skeptic and atheists to consider whether these biological facts show evidence of design. One Maricopa County location only – bring a friend.
► November 20 – 7:00 PM – Arizona Christian University (Phoenix): Master Tips on Witnessing. Few Christians in America have sidewalk witnessed using science-based themes to high school and college students as much as has Bill Morgan. Creative, thoughtful and tenacious, Bill has developed powerful methods and resources for others to use, too. It's not about obnoxious bullhorns and buttonholing – Bill's techniques tailor to your personality to spread the truthful and dignified message of God. Learn the key facts, how to ask questions, how to listen, and how best to deal with doubters and atheists. One night only in Arizona – do not miss it!
Pima County Events
► November 14 – 7:00 PM – Tucson (New Location): Norm Crawford - Rocket Scientist -Understanding Creation Discussion on why this is such a heated topic among believers. A look at the viability of the old vs. young interpretations of astrological and geological features and how the concept of deep time has become the god of this age. The theological impacts of old earth interpretations and its inconsistencies with Scripture and the nature of God are discussed in detail.
Gila County Events (Payson Location)
► November 26 – 7:00 PM – Payson Public Library: Created to Fly: Biological Inspiration for Advanced Aircraft. Bird designs have inspired the designers of flying machines for over a century. That makes sense - birds can fly and their design shows how it can be possible. But flying creatures have features that show irreducible complexity and thus reveal God’s creative actions. Humans have advanced in robotics, computer simulation, and aviation to produce amazing flying machines also, but they do not even approach God’s design genius on display in birds and bats. Larry Kisner (M.S., Mathematics and Physics) delivers fascinating material aimed to be uplifting for everyone.
Creation Science Conference in Scottsdale
Check out the three creation science programs at Calvary Chapel: Friday, Nov 1: 7 to 9 PM – Saturday, Nov 2: 1 to 5 PM – Sunday, Nov 3: 9:00 AM.

Last Chance: Grand Canyon Tour on November 9!
Join us on Saturday, November 9 and “Get on the Bus with Russ” for an eye-opening trip to the South Rim of Grand Canyon. This Creation-based journey is packed with learning, fun and fellowship as we travel with Russ Miller (Founder of Creation, Evolution & Science Ministries). The trip includes water and snacks on a luxury coach bus, complete with DVD screens, large viewing windows (with sunshades) and an on-board restroom. Among the trips highlights is a stop at Mather Point and a hike to Bright Angel. Along the way Russ will present several talks, point out the original creation-week rock, and reveal the judgment layers, taking us where we can put our hands on each of these! A rest at an ice cream shop and some free time at Bright Angel Lodge complete our Grand Canyon tour. Pick up locations are in Phoenix, Camp Verde and Flagstaff, with DVDs shown during travel time. People love this bus trip! Get more details by contacting David McNabb at
or at (602) 482-8598.

You Can Do This – Become the Origin Scientist You Want to Be
Imagine – plan – execute – triumph! That’s how big life moves occur. Imagine sitting comfortably in your home, partaking in an immense education in origin science. Your text would be In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood (9th ed. 2014). Your professor would be the book’s author, Walter Brown, Ph.D., who earned his doctorate in mechanical engineering from MIT and is a National Science Foundation Fellow.
Take the plunge and get this result: a logical, scientific, serious, no-nonsense grasp of creation science concepts covering the life sciences, Earth sciences, physical sciences, and astronomical sciences. Two special value-adds in studying with Dr. Brown: (1) a comprehensive understanding of the competing scientific theories about Noah’s Flood, one of which Dr. Brown personally pioneered; and (2) many clear and concrete explanations showing directly the connections between scientific discoveries and Bible teachings.
True to his strong academic credentials and commitment to truth, Dr. Brown has provided in his book copious citations to secular science books and journal articles so that no scientific notion is exaggerated or “taken on faith.” All materials are professionally produced with full color photos and illustrations, and the final book is slated for print publication and free online access.
Two options are being discussed for a 2014 educational initiative. One is an actual class of motivated students, participating either in person or possibly via PC audio or videoconferencing. The other is a self-study plan with periodic personal or in-person meetings with Dr. Brown for in depth discussion and Q&A.
