Did you Know that the impact of its pecking is so intense that if it turned its head just slightly it would snap its own neck? Or did you know that every time the woodpecker hit the wood with its beak it closes its eyes, but then immediately needs to reopen them to aim? Listen to the woodpeckers in your neighborhood as they open, close, open, close, open close their eyes! My husband blessed us with a set of lecture materials from the Creation Education Center this week. The boys and I are hooked after the first DVD! I love science! I especially love how looking at creation through a very scientific lens clearly shows that this universe did not happen by accident! Here is a picture of the DVD’s and book my husband got for us. Today at lunch we broke into the “Creation vs. Evolution: The Case for Science” disc. Set up as a professional lecture, I was surprised that even our 8 year old was fully engaged. The information is laid out simply and in a beautifully visual presentation. We are hungry for more! My plan is to go through one DVD at a time. We will watch it through, get excited, and discuss our first impressions. Then we will go back and dissect it bit by bit. Taking notes, drawing pictures, and doing further research where we are inspired. The speaker Jay Seegrert is engaging and has a quirky sense of humor. The boys loved the way he taught. As a devoted Christian he shares about why his ministry is focused on creation rather than just Jesus here. I feel like we are finally on track with where our family needs to be scientifically. Looking at the actual scientific evidence and then determining if it lines up with our belief that the Bible is true. I am thrilled! How about you? How do you handle the evolution vs. creation study? What do you use to support your belief? Before you leave: Sign up here to receive freebies, deals, and resources!!
