AzOSA News and Events
July is a vacation month ... but not for AzOSA and its presentations aimed especially for a general audience. Eat a nice dinner at 6, and get educated at 7! This month plan for:
- Maricopa & Pima Counties: The basics of science for thoughtful Christians.
- Gila County: Was your uncle a Neanderthal? (Does it matter?)
- Origin Science Radio Outreach on KFNX
- Grand Canyon University Job Opportunities * Urgent (and more - scroll down)
MARICOPA COUNTY EVENTS
Phoenix: Mon. July 21 - How Science is Done.
Have you ever heard the claim that Christians are "against science"? That's easy to debunk after you see Guy Forsythe's
presentation that shows how the logic and methods of science fit well with the Christian approach. Guy's warmly powerful speaking style empowers you with a clear understanding of:
All Maricopa (Phoenix Area events)
Tempe: Tues. July 22 - How Science is Done.
- The roles of assumptions and worldview in scientific investigation
- Historical (or Forensic) Science vs Operational Science (how Bill Nye got it all wrong)
- The roles of inductive, deductive and abductive logic in scientific investigations (not nearly as difficult as the terms seem)
- The role of the scientific method
- Why "falsification" is the essence of scientific investigation
- Hard, Firm and Soft science (eye opening insights!)
In this location convenient to the East Valley, Guy Forsythe
reprises the fundamentals every Christian thinker, speaker and believer should know. If you haven't confronted your doubts and questions about how science and religion relate together, then this is the time and place!
PIMA COUNTY EVENT
Tucson: Thurs. July 17 - How Science is Done.
For Tucson and anywhere within driving distance, Guy Forsythe
brings his foundational presentation to equip Christians with a clear understanding of science, its methods and its limitations.
GILA COUNTY EVENT
Payson: Tues. July 29 - The Illusion of Human Evolution. Still among the hottest topics on the American scene: is "macro evolution" a proven fact of science - or - a disintegrating relic of the 19th Century? Pete Greer, an educator and local resident, compares the evolutionary and biblical history of man. Does the evidence show humans had "primitive" ancestors? Does the fossil record the traditional Darwinian view? Does the Biblical view of human history make rational sense? Which worldview spawned racism, hedonism, and the century of genocide? The Biblical truths and the Christian faith point to an amazingly brighter eternity. Bring the kids - Pete shows some terrific optical illusions as illustrations!

Still Needed: Hosts in Phoenix for a Pastor For One Night in September
Pastors from southern Arizona desiring to experience the Pastor and Church Leaders Grand Canyon Bus Tour could really benefit from getting to the Phoenix area the night before their early morning departure.

Origin Science on the Radio in Arizona!
To get the truth about the origins of the Universe, of the Earth, of Life and of Mankind out to the general public, veteran speaker Sal Giardina is developing a radio program to air on 50,000 watt KFNX. AzOSA is supporting that project financially, and when it airs, AzOSA speakers will be welcome to extend the message all over the state and streaming over the Internet. Click here to learn more and to contribute to AzOSA's matching fund challenge!
Grand Canyon University Job Opportunities - Urgent
Two academic positions need to be filled at GCU this fall - can you help? One is as an Instructor of a Biology Lab section. The other is to teach a course in Anatomy along with its lab section. These are positions needing to be filled for this Fall Semester. Contact Dr. Kezele here as soon as possible if you are interested at all.
Don't Step Back, Step Forward
You may have seen this entry in the Newsletter for a few months. And now may be the time to step forward in faith to 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. Ready to multiply your effectiveness? Consider helping as:
► Church Survey Assistant - using simple direct mail techniques, help this ongoing original research project obtain and organize data to understand origin science’s challenges in some churches and how to overcome them. Contact Ed Zimmer at

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 options are being discussed: (1) an actual class of motivated students, participating either in person or possibly via PC audio or videoconferencing; (2) a self-study plan with periodic personal or in-person meetings with Dr. Brown for in depth discussion and Q&A.
Click here to see the full text
of the previous (8th) edition of In the Beginning.
To ask questions or participate,
please contact Larry Kisner via this email
Unsure of your science background? There will be tutors to help. Studying Dr. Brown’s book and getting this education can change your life. Contact us now and discuss the options.
