In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. – Genesis 1:1
The Origins Lecture Series is produced for the Colorado Christian University and local community to explore a few of the acceptable, mainline, evangelical ideas, thoughts, and facts about how the God of the universe created our world. With five nationally known speakers on the subject – and a special panel from CCU’s School of Theology and Department of Sciences – we hope that each person attending will have stronger insight to how the world began and how their faith ties into God’s spectacular design for mankind and the planet we live on.
Guest Lecturer – Dr. Jason Lisle
Dr. Jason Lisle is currently the director of research at the Institute for Creation Research (ICR), a institute which seeks to “equip believers with evidence of the Bible’s accuracy and authority through scientific research, educational programs, and media presentations, all conducted within a thoroughly biblical framework” (Taken from ICR’s Explore ICR section at www.icr.org). Dr. Lisle double-majored in physics and astronomy (along with mathematics minor) at Ohio Wesleyan University, where he also graduated summa cum laude. He then went on to pursue his master’s degree and Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Colorado. He is attributed as one of the key people in constructing the Creation Museum’s planetarium and content. Dr. Lisle’s written works include: The Solar System: God’s Heavenly Handiwork, The Ultimate Proof of Creation, and Discerning Truth: Exposing Errors in Evolutionary Arguments.
