Mary Schweitzer. A mother, North Carolina State University researcher, and innovative dinosaur tissue detective……..Or is she a dupe, misled by her scientific colleagues?
As we lead into week two this coming Sunday of our 2013 Facts and Faith Symposium, we will be exploring the intersection of Biblical faith and Science as it relates to the age of the earth. One question we received this past week was:
What happened to the dinosaurs, and how were they destroyed?
This is a hot question these days, in view of the recent dinosaur discovery in southern Utah. According to National Geographic, researchers have found a new ancestor to the terrifying Tyrannosaurus rex, nicknamed the “King of Gore”. This is an eery reminder of yet another famous discovery of yet another dinosaur …. in Hell.
That’s correct. You heard me right.
There are dinosaurs in Hell.
Well….that is, Hell Creek in nearby Montana.
Facts and Faith Symposium attendees prepare to view the first film, Lee Strobel’s The Case for a Creator, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
We have just concluded our first week of the Facts and Faith Symposium. You will not want to miss the next two weeks! But if you are unable to attend, we will be covering the conversation here for you.
Facts & Faith Handout
Here on Veracity, we have talked a lot about science and faith issues as they relate to Creation as we have been ramping up over the past few weeks in preparation for the Symposium. CAVEAT: For those of you who feel overloaded by science/faith stuff, do not worry. We do blog about other things, too! John and I have just been on a roll lately!
Below is a selection of many of the Veracity blog posts that address various issues regarding Creation. In addition, we will have extra material that seeks to address a number of questions that come up during our conversation. If you have further questions, or things you want to talk about, please put them down in the comments section below. Thanks!

(A Three-part Vine Life Symposium)
November 10th, 17th and 24th, 2013
6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Williamsburg Community Chapel
The Christian faith is founded in reality. The events in the Bible really happened, and the Bible is completely trustworthy in all that it reports and represents. Not completely convinced? Join us for a three-night symposium entitled Facts & Faith as we present the astounding corroboration of the Bible that is found in science. The Williamsburg Community Chapel was founded by scientists, who will participate in a facilitated panel discussion to answer questions from the audience after viewing one special video each evening, including:
1- The Case for a Creator (Lee Strobel documentary)
2- Dual Revelation (from Reasons To Believe)
3- Cosmic Fingerprints (Hugh Ross presentation to Willow Creek Church)
Topics will cover: the incredible fine tuning of the universe from cosmology, astrophysics, and biology; the concordance between God’s Dual Revelation in the book of Scripture and the book of nature; and the incredible accuracy of Old Testament writing that is just now being appreciated in 21st century scientific discoveries that even prominent atheists agree can only be explained by the existence of an intelligent designer. Please join us for teaching and sharing that will definitely lift your appreciation for the veracity of the Bible.
