Maricopa County Events
► April 21 – 7:00 PM – Phoenix: Irrefutable Examples of Design in Nature - The Bees. Whether a keen observer of nature or a fan of vintage Saturday Night Live, you probably realize the fascination of bees. Did you realize that so many facts about bees proclaim the truth of intelligent design? And that supports the Christian worldview? Dr. Thomas Kindell regales us with intriguing facts about bees, their structures and behavior that confirm: those buzzy gals did not appear on Earth by accident! One night only.
► April 22 – 7:00 PM – Tempe: Design in Nature - The Birds. Alfred Hitchcock and Rachel Carson, call your offices – the birds are back! This time the birds dive into our minds, bringing insights about intelligent design and Special Creation.Dr. Thomas Kindell gives you the ammunition, not against bird attacks, but to show the scientific power of our worldview: birds were designed by our God. One night only.
► April 23 – 7:00 PM – Arizona Christian University: Evolution and the UFO Connection. If you thought evolution theory was only about finches, horses, chimps and Neanderthals, think again. The modern preoccupation with extraterrestrials actually stems from the assumed “fact” of evolution. Dr. Thomas Kindell reveals the subtle connections and answers many common questions about UFOs and aliens from a Biblical perspective. Faculty, students and the public are invited. One night only.
Pima County Event
April 24 – 7:00 PM – Tucson (New Location): Irrefutable Examples of Design in Nature. Examples of extreme design technology, fantastic instinctive behaviors of so many creatures, do these suggest undirected evolution or the Creator’s purposeful action? Dr. Thomas Kindell, once an ardent evolutionist, provides the intellectual ammunition to answer: Is evidence of Design just an illusion? Can irreducible complexity be demonstrated? Can amazing instinctive behaviors evolve? Don’t miss this opportunity to perfect your responses to skeptics!
Cochise County Events
April 26 – 9:00 AM – Noon – Sierra Vista: Design in Nature - The Bees. Whether a keen observer of nature or a fan of vintage Saturday Night Live, you probably realize the fascination of bees. Did you realize that so many facts about bees proclaim the truth of intelligent design? And that supports the Christian worldview? Dr. Thomas Kindell regales us with intriguing facts about bees, their structures and behavior that confirm: those buzzy gals did not appear on Earth by accident!
Gila County Event (Payson Location)
April 29 – 7:00 PM – Payson Public Library: Darwin – Massacred by a Monarch. All alliteration aside, it’s true: the Monarch Butterfly’s design and migration behavior leaves the Darwinist model behind like a wilted dandelion. Dr. Thomas Kindell frees this creative miracle to fly with facts most people don’t know, but which bury the materialist worldview in a shallow grave. Hyperbole? Come and see – bring your questions! Great for kids of all ages!
Yavapai County Events
May 10 – 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM – Prescott: Spring Seminar.
► 9:00 AM: “Out-of-Place” Fossils and Artifacts
A lot of educated people do not know: the assumptions, flaws and fallacies of radiometric dating and the geologic column. Dr. Kindell examines the serious challenge of the “out-of-place” fossils and artifacts. Do you know where your dinosaur is? Or should be?
►10:00 AM: A Critique of Textbook Arguments for Evolution
Textbooks – still reciting the highly questionable evolutionist dogma? Dr. Kindell systematically refutes the most common high school and college textbook arguments for evolution. Parents need to attend this one for sure!
► 11:00 AM: Scientific Evidence for a Young Earth
Case closed – or is it? Whatever your beliefs about the age of the Universe and the Earth, have you seen the coherent, reasonable young Earth position explained well? Dr. Kindell reviews the numerous physical processes in our galaxy, in our solar system and on the Earth that indicate the Biblical young Earth view has scientific merit.
Resolution in 2014?
Maybe you missed your church’s volunteer work projects in construction, baking, child caring, or event hosting? No problem – channel a few hours each month to multiply the outreach of the Truth to mankind. Without you, AzOSA and its many activities and outreaches just cannot happen.

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.
