This is a great time to share the truth. You can give hope to those who are overwhelmed with fear and doubt.

ICR's monthly magazine is available for free (print & digital). Read this month's issue here: https://www.icr.org/article/inside-march-2020-acts-facts/

My wife is awesome! She went to the Greater Homeschool Convention in Dallas last week and then went to the ICR Discovery Center for Science & Earth History last Saturday. While she was there she picked up a large stash of their Acts & Facts magazines. I like to stockpile these so that our Creation Team can give these out to students when we go to the public schools along with our 5 minutes with a Darwinists booklets! 🙌😀

Several students, upon hearing the evidence for the global flood and flaws of evolution, are so excited to learn as much as they can. We are here to show them that the entirety of God's Word is true (psalm 119:160) and that they can trust it on earthly matters and spiritual matters (see john 3) when we say "you must trust in Jesus."

Origins: Re-examining the Evidence

Media, movies, and nature programs overwhelmingly emphasize the idea that humans evolved from primate ancestors. But what does the scientific evidence really show? There are no “almost human” ancestors, only humans and apes—two separate kinds—just as God created them around 6,000 years ago.

Dr. Jeff Tomkins, Dr. Tim Clarey, and Dr. Brian Thomas will speak on biblical creation during the Origins: Re-examining the Evidence event at the ICR Discovery Center for Science & Earth History in Dallas, Texas.

Space is limited—get your tickets today! https://www.icr.org/origins

Now Showing: Life Through the Ice Age

Life Through the Ice Age offers reasonable, biblical answers to popular Ice Age questions:

- Was the whole Earth covered in ice?
- How did creatures grow thick coats and sharp tusks?
- Why are wooly mammoths buried in Siberian permafrost?

If you’ve already visited the Discovery Center, we encourage you to return and see this new show. If you haven’t yet experienced our cutting-edge exhibits and presentations, we hope you’ll plan your visit soon!
