More creationism in the Northwest

If you’re in Portland or nearby, here are two events to look forward to. I won’t be going to either, but if you do, let me know!

First:

The INSTITUTE for CREATION SCIENCE
Sunday, January 26, 2012 Meeting
5:00 to 7:00 PM

“Metamorphosis – the Beauty & Design of Butterflies”

The creation is filled with uncountable fascinating examples of life that defy the secular paradigm of evolution over millions of years. The special case of butterflies is a miraculous illustration that could be explained as God saying to us, “here is one instance that is impossible for you to explain by evolution.”

At the January meeting of ICS we will enjoy a “doubleheader” of information on the butterfly. First will be a showing of the spectacular hour-long video, “Metamorphosis – the Beauty and Design of Butterflies” by Illustra Media; an unforgettable documentary filled with the joys of discovery and wonder. Then Mr. John Hergenrather of Creation Encounter Tours will provide a local perspective from his long study of the Monarch Butterfly and its west coast life cycle.

We invite you to come on January 26 for a perspective not often available in your experience. Biologists have called the butterfly life cycle “butterfly magic.” Come prepared to be amazed!

This meeting of ICS will be held at Rivercrest Community Church located at 3201 NE 148th Avenue in Portland, OR 97230. Doors open at 4:30 PM to allow your access to the creation science book and DVD tables. For more information on this meeting, please access the website http://www.icspdx.org where you can also find a map to Rivercrest Community Church

Second:

The 26th Annual Northwest Creation Conference 2012
Saturday February 11th
Columbia Conference Center, Holiday Inn at the Portland Airport

For more details, here’s the brochure as a PDF.

Son of incarcerated creationist Kent Hovind, Eric, is their headline speaker. An emphasis is going to be on dinosaurs in the Bible and sessions for children. And this is likely what Eric and his fellow creationists will be spouting:

I first saw this video on Why Evolution Is True.

  1. For the first event, the date they initially presented is a bit confusing as January 26 is a Thursday not a Sunday. According to their website, it’s actually Sunday January 22.

    I doubt that I’ll be able to go due to transportation limitations, but we’ll see. And I’ll opt out of the conference on the grounds that I can’t justify giving money that would go to support their misguided cause. I’ll at the very least invite these folks to Dr Boghossian’s presentation on why God is a delusional concept on the 27th.

  2. The ICR and Eric Hovind want to promote the foolishness of Creation Science, and not the truth of Genesis. Why should anyone even want to waste their time with such mis-representation of the Word of God?
