·     Is Genesis Relevant for Today?
Delves into the impact of evolution on the church and culture. Shows how Genesis is still important for today, and that the whole Bible is God’s word.
·    Is Evolution a Fact?
Using definitions of science and evolution, shows that macroevolution is not observed and is not a fact. The debate is not science versus religion, but is rather the secular worldview versus the Christian worldview. Presents evidence against evolution and for creation from biology.
·     Did the Big Bang Really Happen?
Shows the many problems and ad hoc modifications of the Big Bang Theory, and why it should not be believed by Christians.
·    The Ice Age — Only the Bible Can Explain It!
The uniformitarians cannot explain the last major geophysical event in earth history. Presents a model based on the climatic aftermath of the global Genesis Flood, and shows how this model provides solutions to many mysteries of the recent past.
·     Whatever Happened to the Woolly Mammoths?
Included among the Ice Age mysteries are the woolly mammoths, especially those that lived by the millions in Siberia and Alaska. Provides a solution to their existence and demise within the post-Flood, rapid-Ice Age model based on the climatic change resulting from Noah's Flood.
·     Whatever Happened to the Dinosaurs?
Focuses on the many uniformitarian dinosaur mysteries. Provides evidence that the dinosaurs (except those on the ark) died in the Flood. Gives an explanation for dinosaurs’ making tracks and laying eggs early in the Flood.

All presentations are via transparencies (/w slides on Russian University talk)

·     Theistic Evolution! No Way! No Way!
Shows how theistic evolution violates semantics and is "theo-illogical."
·     Is Evolution a Theory, a Fact, a Law, or None of the Above?
Explains that evolution and creation are both models of origins and are unprovable.
·     Is Genesis 1 to 11 Mythological or Historical?
Points out logical inconsistencies of twisting words in Genesis to agree with man's errant speculations.
·     Teaching Evolution at a Russian University
Remarks about the speaker's experiences while teaching a "Philosophy of Science" course at Novosibirsk State University in Siberia, which included debates with Russian evolutionists.
·     Can Evolution Make Functional Proteins?
Discusses four biochemical laws which prevent evolution from making functional proteins in cells.
·     Can a Real Scientist Believe in Evolution?
Reveals that since evolution has not been observed in the present or past, it lacks scientific foundation.

·     Microscopic Design in Biology
Stunning evidence for design in biology at the microscopic level. High magnification micrographs (photographs taken through the microscope) shown include: the compound lenses of the eyes of trilobites (made from real calcite glass), the microanatomy of the bombardier beetle defense system, the cyto-architecture of diatom glass frustules (shells), the complex life cycles of microscopic parasites (which are immune transparent), the real story behind lichen (algae and fungi) symbiosis, the light producing structures of the firefly, and much more.
·     From LaBrea to Lompoc
The geologic features of Southern California are a classic example of catastrophic flood deposits. From the Rancho LaBrea assemblage (commonly and mistakenly called the “tar pits”), to the world’s deepest diatomaceous earth deposits at Lompoc (and nearby Santa Maria), the compelling evidence for a gargantuan flood is present for all to see.
·     Helium Retention in Deep Core Zircons
This seminar reviews previous work on radiohalos, their occurrence in granites, and the results the ICR/CRS RATE project where Mr. Armitage has been documenting radiohalos in over 105 granites from around the world. The talk concludes with startling evidence of massive amounts of helium being retained by zircons extracted from deep granite cores (over 3000 ft. deep).

·     Origins: The Great Debate
What are the two models of origins, creation and evolution, and what difference does it really make what I believe? Biblical concepts of origins and scientific evidences for creation are presented. The fundamental concept of information theory and its relationship to origins is explored. The reasons for the debate over origins and the relevance to everyone is emphasized.

The speaker has a number of versions of this presentation available, from a single one session to 13 one hour sessions.
·     Positive Creation Evidences
Many opponents of creation claim that creationary scientists only attack the evolution model and provide no support for creation. On the contrary, there are numerous scientific evidences that directly support the creation model of origins. A representative sample of the positive scientific evidences for creation will be drawn from the four main origin events: universe, life, diverse life, and human beings.
·     God's Creative Activity
Human beings are wonderfully creative as we were made in God's Image. People follow a three-part creative process (idea, implementation, interaction) because we were created by a Triune God. The creation model can provide evidence and reasons for human creativity based upon a careful understanding of the work of each person in the Trinity. Directly related to God's creative activity is the concept of information theory - a powerful, positive evidence for the creation model of origins.

All presentations are in PowerPoint® format

·     Creation/Evolution: Why it Matters
Explores the effect of evolutionary teaching on the church and how worldviews affect our thinking.
·     Creation Biology: Understanding Life from a Biblical Perspective
Shows how a biblically based view of biology is consistent with the world we see around us.  Includes a discussion of kinds and explores amazing design found in animals and humans.
·     The Age of the Earth and the Gospel
Discusses basic concepts involved dating rocks, problems with radiometric dating, and methods that yield a significantly younger ages.
·     Biblical Thinking 101: How to Discern the Truth from a Lie
Discusses the uniqueness of the Bible compared to other religious beliefs (including evolutionism) and several biblical methods by which truth claims can be evaluated.
·     Biblical Thinking 102: Who Are You Going to Believe?
Examines factors which can lure us from believing the truth and discusses the importance of the fear of the Lord.

·     Is the Solar System Young?
(Series) Dr. Samec give evidences from the gas giant planets, comets, the sun, planetary magnetic fields, lunar phenomena and interplanetary dust of the age of the earth. (This is a seminar type talk which will take about 3 hours for the full talk. It can easily be broken up into 2, 3 or 4 segments.)
·     Is the Moon’s Orbit ‘Ringing’ from an Asteroid Collision Event which Triggered the Flood?
An event happened that left one side of the moon pockmarked with giant lava filled pits called mare. Some call it the man in the moon. Could this be a message from God of His Judgement that resulted in the World wide flood? Dr. Samec answers this and other questions show that the earth-moon system is young.
·    Are globular clusters tens of Billions of years old?
Dr. Samec explores an the problem of the missing dust and gas in these beautiful, rich star clusters and finds that the answer to the riddle is that they are much younger than thought!
·   Those Fast Spinning Stars!
Solar type stars spin down with age, why are so many spun up at near break up velocities? Dr. Samec's life long research has lead him to  study solar type binary stars and their orbits. His research reveals that the universe is not 14.7 billion years old as the evolutionary astronomers say.
