Apologetics Symposium--Programming of Life

Programming of Life highlights the informational aspects of life that are usually overlooked or ignored in chemical and biological evolutionary scenarios. Each cell of an organism has thousands (or millions) of interacting computers reading and processing digital information using algorithmic digital programs and digital codes to communicate information. Life is an intersection of physical science and information science. Both domains are critical for any life to exist, and each must be investigated using that domain's principles. Yet most scientists have been attempting to use physical science to explain life's information domain, a practice which has no scientific justification.Dr. Don Johnson

 This presentation reviews the cell’s computers & computer programs, including computer, coding systems, & algorithmic requirements. The information questions unanswered as yet by science are highlighted. The required properties of nature’s constants & natural laws are examined, with life’s required component’s properties probabilities highlighted, along with scientific problems with the observed fine-tuning of nature's constants and properties needed in order for life to have the observed biological information structures. This presentation is based on Dr. Don Johnson's two most recent books.

 About the Speaker:

Don Johnson earned Ph.D.s in both Computer & Information Sciences and in Chemistry. He was a senior research scientist and consultant for over 14 years, and taught 20 years in universities in the US and Europe. Since retiring as an APU (Christian university) professor, he has done consulting, speaking, and writing (4 books, including best-selling “Programming of Life,” and several peer-reviewed papers). He has made Christian and secular presentations across the US and on most continents. His Christian Website has links to the “Programming of Life” video (over 236,000 on-line views), several video presentations and printable flyers, as well as links to his two secular science Websites. For over 20 years he believed, taught, and defended the evolutionary scenarios, until science convinced him of the bankruptcy of those beliefs.

Church Connection: Emerald City Bible Fellowship

SPIRIT wants to be involved with YOUR church! We believe in the mission and ministry of churches in our community. SPIRIT 105.3 wants to partner together to reach out and share God’s love with believers and non-believers in our local area. It’s our hopes that through Church Connection, listeners who do not regularly attend church will get plugged into a local body and have a chance to grow in their faith.

This month we are partnering with Emerald City Bible Fellowship to share God’s love. Join us on September 14th for the 10:15am service as we worship and fellowship together.

The Emerald City Bible Fellowship church family is deeply committed to that which is important to Jesus Christ. Jesus’ words about loving God, loving people (Matthew 22:37-39) and making disciples (Matthew 28:19-20) form the foundation of the vision we possess. Our aim is to be a praying and worshipping community of believers whose faith in Jesus Christ is evident to all we encounter. And that our faith in Jesus and obedience to the scriptures will lead others to experience authentic life change as well. Emerald City Bible Fellowship makes every attempt at maintaining a balance between preaching (telling) and practicing (doing) the gospel. Our hope is that as we pro-actively share the “good news” of the gospel and engage in the “good works” of the gospel that individuals, families and our community will find wholeness for their lives through Jesus Christ. Emerald City Bible Fellowship is marked by several notable characteristics and emphases including faith, racial diversity, spiritual worship, giving, intercession, community outreach, international missions and a healthy balance between family and ministry.

Special thanks to Rainier View Construction and Roofing for sponsoring this months Church Connection! Rainier View Construction and Roofing is based in Auburn and is family owned and operated. Licensed, bonded, and insured, they are your one stop for residential home improvements - roofing, siding, windows, solar energy, decks, remodels, additions - they do it all!
