Seminar's focus is on science, our young earth
The Daily Courier

That actual science demonstrates that the earth must be very young is the overall theme of the Arizona Creation Science Association's spring seminar that will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday at the Light and Life Free Methodist Church in Prescott.

Leading the presentations will be Joseph Kezele, M.D., of Phoenix who is now retired from medical practice and serves as president of the Arizona Origin Science Association. He also is an assistant professor of biology at Arizona Christian University and teaches creation science evangelism at Black Mountain Baptist Church.

Kezele studied the sciences and music at the University of Arizona, where he earned his medical degree in 1975. He practiced emergency medicine in the Phoenix area for 23 years.

He will give three 40-minute presentations, with question-and-answer periods and 10-minute breaks after each.

The topic of the 9 a.m. session is "Dinos to Birds? Horse Feathers!" Kezele will present topics that demonstrate the impossibility of dinosaurs evolving into birds: avian lungs versus reptilian lungs, bird hips versus lizard hips, different types of three-clawed feet, the origin of feathers, the origin of flight and more. The presentation begins and ends with "two rarely used verses from Scripture that are incredibly appropriate for this subject," Kezele said.

"Dinosaurs - Younger than You Think" is the subject of the 10 a.m. session. Kezele will explain the contrast between the evolutionary views and the biblical concept of dinosaurs through time, explore the "myths" of dragons, present scriptural references to dinosaurs and the historical and scientific physical evidence that dinosaurs lived recently.

"Do You Have a Date with Carbon-14?" at 11 a.m. opens with preliminary points about the relationships among Scripture, science and evolution.

Kezele will offer a look at the basics of atomic structure, the formation and decay processes of Carbon-14 in this presentation. He will discuss the "fascinating finding of C-14 in diamonds, along with the very important implications for the age of earth," he said.

"I have always enjoyed science and the opportunities to learn how it works, especially in living organisms," Kezele said in an email. "After becoming a Christian as an adult, and then hearing a speaker talk about how science comes from the God of the Bible, and that science actually confirms the Bible, I had the desire to learn as much as I could about this and to teach this myself."

Saturday's presentation is free to the public. The Light and Life Free Methodist Church is located at 2797 Willow Creek Road.
