SPRING NEWSLETTER, 2020
Dear friends and family,
I hope you all remain safe and healthy during this trying time of the Coronavirus outbreak. By God’s grace, I have completed the second quarter of my geology graduate studies, online. I am currently enjoying the last couple days of my spring break before starting the final quarter of my second year, here at Loma Linda University in southern California.
Spring break could not have come sooner. I needed the free time to review our latest progress on the documentary so that I could offer final revisions for the producers to implement. I am glad to announce that we have just rendered the full 95-minute production—it was exciting to view the entire film stitched together from beginning to end. We are expecting an official release date in the next few months. Our next step is to provide a private viewing link for several scientists to review the film and offer any constructive criticisms or last-minute revisions.
In anticipation of the upcoming documentary, we are releasing a trailer video to ministry supporters and newsletter recipients. The trailer is currently available on the “support” page of our website—visit back2genesis.org/support to watch the trailer or just click the play button below. Please share the video link with friends and family members who may be interested in watching the full-feature when it premieres (the official release date will be provided in our next newsletter).
The documentary is titled DISMANTLED: A Scientific Deconstruction of the Theory of Evolution. The film will be showcasing a series of exciting scientific evidences pertaining to the topic of creation, evolution, and the Bible. Below is a short list of some of the questions that we will be investigating in DISMANTLED.
Is it accurate to equate the theory of evolution with science? Can science prove past events that are not directly testable, observable, or repeatable? What aspects of the theory of evolution are amenable to scientific inquiry? Is the Genesis account of creation a more credible explanation for the origin of the species?
Can the Darwinian mechanism of change (i.e., random mutations and the reproductive filter of natural selection) generate entire libraries worth of new genetic information that are required for any large-scale evolutionary changes (e.g., ape-to-man evolution; fish-to-tetrapod evolution; land mammal-to-whale evolution)?
Did man evolve from so-called “ape-like” creatures like Lucy, Homo habilis, and other reputed hominin species? If not, how do we explain the frequent headlines of the latest fossil discoveries sensationalized by the popular press? Is the human fossil record consistent with the biblical view of human origins recorded in the book of Genesis?
If man did not evolve from “ape-like” creatures, then where did we come from? Is the biblical account of Adam and Eve credible in light of modern genetics? Is there any genetic evidence to support a literal Adam and Eve ancestry? How can we account for the total amount of human genetic diversity if we all came from just two people? And more ...
DISMANTLED will be made available as a digital download (website under construction), on Amazon as an online rental, and other video streaming platforms. In addition, DISMANTLED will be sold and distributed in DVD and Blu-ray formats for those of you who still prefer physical copies (hey, you'd be surprised!).
To print the first 10,000 DVD and Blu-ray discs with sleeves, additional funding is needed ($15,000 dollars). We are asking for your help so that we can launch the film as soon as possible. To make a financial contribution, scroll down to the bottom of our support page and click the donate button. Feel free to email me personally if you have any questions.
As always, thank you for your encouragement and support. It is our earnest prayer that millions of souls around the globe will watch this film and be humbled by the awesome majesty and power of the ONE true Creator and Savior, Jesus Christ!
