Maricopa County Events
► June 6 – 7 PM – Scottsdale: Natural Selection and Speciation - Having Fun with Dogs! Whether it’s Fido, Fifi, Lassie, Hobo, Eddie or Fang, all dogs trace their biology to common ancestors. But how did so many breeds arise? Dr. Kezele, ACU biology professor, uses examples of dog breeds to help explain what a “species” is, how “breeding” techniques work, how the Ice Age could have pressured species development, and whether these concepts fit with evolutionary theory or with the Bible’s historical accounts. You get facts you can share easily with friends and family when talking about origins – and it’s fun! (Cat people welcome, too!)
► June 17 – 7:00 PM – Phoenix: All Creation Speaks! Join Sal Giardina (scientist, astronaut candidate, jet pilot, published author and ordained minister) as his multimedia presentation projects the “big picture” showing the truth of Creation. Essential concepts from the facts of thermodynamics, irreducible complexity, biogensis, cell complexity, and the absence of naturalistic mechanisms for life’s origin, all come together in ways everyone can understand and use. Everybody can benefit from the information in this strong presentation.
► June 18 – 7:00 PM – Tempe: All Creation Speaks! Repeating his performance at the convenient east Valley location, Sal Giardina (scientist, astronaut candidate, jet pilot, published author and ordained minister) delivers his multimedia presentation giving the “big picture” showing the truth of Creation. Essential concepts from the facts of thermodynamics, irreducible complexity, biogensis, cell complexity, and the absence of naturalistic mechanisms for life’s origin, all come together in ways everyone can understand and use. Don’t miss this one!
Pima County Events
► June 20 – 7:00 PM – Tucson: All Creation Speaks! In the final performance in Tucson,Sal Giardina (scientist, astronaut candidate, jet pilot, published author and ordained minister) delivers the “big picture” showing the truth of Creation. Essential concepts from the facts of thermodynamics, irreducible complexity, biogensis, cell complexity, and the absence of naturalistic mechanisms for life’s origin, all come together in ways everyone can understand and use. Multimedia, solid and polished, this 90 minutes is must-see!
Gila County Events (New Location)
► June 25 – 7:30 PM – Payson Public Library: Dinosaurs! Get past the dusty museum pieces and the purple cartoons with Dr. Kezele, ACU biology professor, as he tracks the ideas about dinosaurs in both the evolutionary and the Biblical views. Did “dragons” actually exist, or are they purely myths? Were dinosaurs present on Earth at the same time as humankind? The science is fascinating. The implications ... can be life changing! Bring a friend and welcome origin science to Payson.

The previous Grand Canyon bus trip was fully attended and a huge success. Why? Because it uniquely supplied church leaders with distinctly personal connections to origin science concepts revealed in Arizona’s Grand Canyon. And Russ Miller stands tall among effective and entertaining presenters.

Get the expert to settle the issues, once and for all. Mike Riddle’s Advanced Creation Apologetics course comes to Arizona this Fall, and you can help make this course available at your church or other organization.
