Epigenetics - how your choices can affect your children's genes and how "truth" changes in science!
Epigenetics has to do with things that are inherited, but NOT directly inherited through our genes. What, you say! I thought that DNA was the ONLY way we could inherit characteristics! Our thinking on this has changed greatly in the last 25 years or so. It is an interesting study of how "scientific truth" can change. Epigenetics is also of real practical importance, because our behavior can affect our children's genetic inheritance!

• Beginning in 2000, developed an active research program in experimental evolution using bacteria to study the capabilities and limitations of evolution when defined as mutation and natural selection.
• One of the authors of Explore Evolution, a supplementary text showing the problems with evolutionary theory.

Wisconsin geology and the Flood
The name of the presentation is Hydrophobia, and the message is all about examining the evidences that water formed many of the land-forms we see.. The presentation contains seven marks of water deluge and dynamic pictures of unique terrain that will reveal connections that few have ever considered. Hydrophobia will systematically go through the evidences about what happened and compare them with traditional geological explanations.
Lastly, the presentation will glorify our Lord and inspire Believers to take the next step. I encourage you to bring your family and friends since all will be treated to an opportunity to get to know Wisconsin and beyond in a brand new way.
PS For homework (since I am a teacher at heart) come to the meeting with thoughts of how the hill across the lake at Copper Falls State Park formed.
I am an observer, ponderer, adventurer, teacher and most importantly a Born Again Believer that has come to not only embrace a young earth view but effectively defend it.
In no way shape or form did I ever consider speaking to Creation groups, as I was content being an Earth Science teacher at Wauwatosa East High School, but then it happened. In the year 2013, I experienced a tectonic shift, as a big part of my identity was rocked. I needed to make a decision about the future and that is when I clung to my faith and solely leaned on the Lord for guidance as I purged myself from the school system. During the last 5 years, the paradigm shift that I experienced was focused on how landforms were created in catastrophic manners. I began to study first-hand what truly happened to Wisconsin and beyond through personal experiences in the Missoula Flood terrain, Alpine Glaciated areas in various parts of the West and Alaska as well as focusing most of my attention on Wisconsin, especially the Northern Kettle Moraine where I live. The educational training I had received at UW-Stevens Point and Northern Illinois, proved to not only be of little use, but completely antagonistic to what I have recently learned. To sum it all up, progressive scientists have dropped the ball on scientific integrity within the realm of earth science. Even more depressing is that many creationists have embraced aspects of progressivism; steering them away from the truth. The tool box progressives have utilized to influence society is all about the narrative, thus delusional. The reality of God’s strength utilizing water has left its mark everywhere for people to see.

The Bible, Science, Indigenous Studies and Healthy Living."
God created us to live in an environment where we can find foodstuffs that are beneficial to us. How do we know what we should eat? What is the role of chemicals like zinc and boron in healthy living? And, how did bacteria evolve to beneficially live in our bodies? We will get some clues from archaeological studies and studies of indigenous people’s guts. And, finally, why is the 7th day of resting and fasting important?
Mr. Slinger has a B.S. in Wildlife Management from the University of Minnesota and is a Graduate of Police Staff and Command from Northwestern University. During his 33 years in natural resource law enforcement he did lots of investigation. He also served many years on the Twin Cities Creation Science Association board of directors.

Why We Exist?
The question “What is the Meaning of Life” has been pondered for centuries. However if we are created beings, then we have to ask the question, why do we exist at all?
What is the purpose of our existence and how do we know that there is a Creator at all?
Join us for a look at the issue of Creation and Existence. We will be looking at Creation through the lens of Philosophy in a way that anyone can understand.
No background in Philosophy is needed.

There are two events this evening.
1) Dinner celebrating the end of another year of speakers and a trip. More information to follow later.
2) Talk on "Noah's Flood and its Effects"
One would expect that a global flood would leave obvious scars on the earth's landscape. This talk will show beautiful pictures taken in national parks in the southwest; these pictures clearly show effects of the Flood.
