Does God exist? How can anyone believe in religion when science has proved no God is necessary? Is evolution happening today? If there is a loving God, then why do we die?
Come along and listen to Dr Don Batten expose the bankruptcy of evolutionary ideas. You'll be blown away to see how the supposed 'scientific evidence for evolution' is really nothing of the sort.
This is an issue that affects everyone. According to the theory of evolution as taught in schools and universities, there is no need for God - everything made itself. If that's true, it means there is no spiritual realm - you don't have a spirit and there is no afterlife. So 'spirituality' is just an 'evolutionary trick of the mind'!
But the Bible gives a very different picture about our origins. And many scientists now recognize that the scientific evidence, when properly understood, confirms the biblical account.
About Dr Don Batten
Don received both his B.Sc.Agr.(First Class Honours) and his Ph.D. from the University of Sydney. He worked for 20 years as a research horticulturalist with the NSW Department of Agriculture. His research included environmental adaptation of tropical/subtropical fruits such as mango, lychee and custard apple (Annona), floral biology, floral induction, breeding, environmental physiology (especially water requirements, effects of water deficits), plant taxonomy, and mineral nutrition. His research on floral induction of lychee and mango overturned long-held ideas which had been an impediment to the scientific understanding of these plants, as well as causing economic loss due to inappropriate management of these crops. He conducted a number of research projects that were externally funded, publishing his results in science journals.
Don joined the ministry in Brisbane, Australia in 1994 and has spoken around the world on the creation issue, showing the errors in the evolutionary ideas he was taught. He is co-author of The Creation Answers Book, One Blood, Answers to the 4 Big Questions, 15 Reasons to Take Genesis as History, and author of various booklets, including What about carbon dating? and What about arguments for evolution? Don is one of the four rotating editors of Creation magazine, and has written many articles for Creation as well as the in-depth Journal of Creation (formerly TJ). Since early 2015, Dr Batten is the CEO of CMI-Australia
