Seminar in Melbourne: CREATION: The Missing Link (David Catchpoole, Ph.D.)

Indonesian Reformed Evangelical Church in Melbourne and Creation Ministries International present

CREATION: The Missing Link

The year 2009 commemorates Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of his book ‘Origin of Species’ - a book that has caused millions to doubt the Word of God, the Bible.

Many comment that science has disproved the Bible, making it irrelevant in today’s modern world. But what’s the answer? Can the majority of scientists really be wrong?

To prepare the inevitable barrage of evolutionary propaganda, Creation Ministries International has launched its own national campaign to defend the creation account as recorded in the Bible.

Attend this fast paced presentation that encompasses various aspects of the creation/evolution issue.

Indonesian Reformed Evangelical Fellowship is hosting Creation Ministries International to explore some of the most-asked questions about science and the Bible.

Come along and bring your friends to hear Dr. David Catchpoole (co-editor of Creation Magazine) presents the importance of the book of Genesis to the Gospel, to your lives and our society at large!

Biography:
David Catchpoole, B.Ag.Sc. (Hons), Ph.D. received his B.Ag.Sc. (Hons) from the University of Adelaide and a Ph.D. from the University of New England (New South Wales). His Ph.D. investigated nitrogen transfer between tree legumes, associated grass and ruminant animals (goats). This was undertaken in Indonesia as part of a joint Australia-Indonesia project in forage research, aimed at improving the quality and availability of animal feed.
Dr Catchpoole subsequently worked for the Queensland Department of Primary Industries as a plant physiologist. His research focused primarily on plant nutrition of tropical fruit trees (especially mango), and varietal selection. He has also worked as a science educator at James Cook University, which included lecturing in tropical horticulture.
David was once an ardent atheistic evolutionist, before being challenged to look critically at the problems of evolution, and the scientific evidence for creation and the Bible. He now works full-time for Creation Ministries International (CMI) in Brisbane, Australia and is a popular speaker having lectured all over Australia and across the world. He has spoken widely on the issues of creation, in particular their importance to evangelism. He is co-author of The Creation Answers Book, and contributed to the book, The Big Argument. David is a co-editor and writer for Creation magazine, and also contributes articles for CMI’s popular website, www.CreationOnTheWeb.com.
