A Young-Age Creation Conference for Students and Educators
Chattanooga, November 8, 2008
  • Hear from experts on scientific aspects of biblical origins!
  • Learn how to integrate science and the Bible!
  • Ask your toughest questions and discuss your views with active creationist researchers!


Even 150 years after Charles Darwin published Origin of Species, people are still bitterly debating the origin of the universe, the earth, and life. At Origins 2008, students and educators will have the opportunity to learn the latest findings in young-age creation research directly from the research experts! This will be an excellent time to enrich your faith, have your questions answered, and fellowship with other creationists.
