Topic: "The scientific approach to evolution."


From Darwin to Dawkins, extensive scientific evidence has been presented for evolution. This presentation will   provide a rational new perspective on this debate. Scientific evidence is not all created equally. Some forms of evidence provide only low confidence, while other forms of evidence provide high confidence. A compelling approach to determine the level of confidence will be described and applied it to the commonly
 cited evidence for evolution. When high-confidence evidence is appropriately prioritized over low-confidence evidence, the result is a profound new view of evolution, one that they did not teach you in biology.


Speaker: Rob Stadler


Rob Stadler received a BS in biomedical engineering from Case Western Reserve University, an MS in electrical engineering from MIT, and a PhD in medical engineering from the Harvard/MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. With 19 years of experience as a scientist in the medical device industry, he has authored 17 peer-reviewed manuscripts, has obtained more than 100 US patents, and his research and innovation have contributed to medical devices that are implanted in over 1 million patients worldwide. His book The Scientific Approach to Evolution was published in September 2016, and is available on Amazon.

Topic: Evolution and Culture


Evolution has permeated our entire culture. People are seen as another kind of animal and the stronger can take advantage of the weaker. Some school killings were motivated by evolutionary thoughts. And, in an evolutionary worldview, there is no meaning to life so drugs and alcohol are often used to escape the emptiness of life.


Come hear our speaker, Brian Cole, tell of his lifestyle supported by an evolutionary worldview and of how he was marvelously saved. He has an amazing testimony presented in a fascinating, dynamic way.


Speaker: Brian Cole


After 30+ years involved in Satanism and the occult, 27+ years of incarceration (4 as a juvenile, 23 as an adult), 25+ years as a drug addict, and caught up in many other addictions such as cutting, pornography, sex, dungeons and dragons, etc., in 2009 after being suicidal and almost succeeding on 3 occasions, He was arrested for the last time! At the age of 44 he had finally “come to himself,” and through a faith based drug and alcohol program offered in the County Jail, he came to know the Truth of Jesus Christ and was born again on January 22, 2009, being radically saved by the very same God he had denied for so many years!


After spending 4 years as Youth/Outreach Pastor at Faith Free Church in Stanley, WI., Brian is now Senior Pastor of the Oaks Church in Drummond, WI., as well as Director of Addictions Transformation at Crossroads Outreach. He has been involved with jail/prison ministry for 6 years, as well as the Faith Riders Motorcycle Ministry. Brian will be married 9 years in July to his beautiful wife Marsha, and has 3 awesome boys: Lance, Dylan and Isaiah.

December 11, 2017


Topic: How Much Can Evolution Do?

Evolutionists point to the ability of organisms to adapt to changes in the environment then confidently assert that those adaptation make it reasonable that all living things descended from one or a few single cells. This talk by Ralph Seelke describes the results of research he performed while on the faculty of the U of Wisconsin Superior. He explored how much change can be induced in bacteria by mutations and natural selection.  Come and see what a scientist thinks about the potential for evolution to occur.


Speaker: Ralph Seelke

Seelke has a PhD in microbiology from the University of Minnesota, in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Medicine. He taught Genetics, Cell Biology, Microbiology, and Immunology for 25 years at UW-Superior. Beginning in 2000, he developed an active research program in experimental "evolution" using bacteria to study the capabilities and limitations of "evolution" to adapt to changes in the environment.
Seelke is one of the authors of Explore Evolution, a supplementary text showing the problems with evolutionary theory.


Meet at Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College, 2100 Beaser, Ashland, WI. Refreshments are at 6:30 PM and the meeting is from 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM.

April 8, 9, 2018


April 8 at Salem: Scientific Evidences for Inspiration

Everything we believe as Christians rests on the assumption that the Bible is actually the inspired, error-free Word of God… but how do we know that? It's not politically correct to believe the Bible alone is the inspired Word of God and most Christians cannot defend this belief. Are we to exercise blind faith, or is there a great body of evidence supporting this crucial point? This topic presents incredible scientific evidence showing beyond doubt that the Bible is truly the inspired Word of God!


April 9 at NCA: Faith is not a Four Letter Word

It is a common misconception that skeptics base all their beliefs on “facts”, while Christians simply have “faith” which amounts to nothing more than wishful thinking and belief in fairy tales… or as Mark Twain stated, “Faith is believing in what you know ain’t so!” This presentation shows just how incorrect this view truly is and also powerfully equips Christians to share and defend their faith without having to memorize lots of facts or have degrees in science. It is very encouraging, eye-opening and easy for all to understand.


Meet at Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College, 2100 Beaser, Ashland, WI. Refreshments are at 6:30 PM and the meeting is from 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM.

Speaker: Jay Seegert

Seegert is an author and international speaker. He is also the Co-founder of the Creation Education Center and has degrees in Physics and Engineering Technology. He has been lecturing on science and the authority of Scripture for 30 years.
