Biblical Archaeology and AGM
with guest speaker
Patrick Nurre was in the second grade when he made his first big find – a large dinosaur bone in the alley behind his house! That was the beginning of a love for geology. Raised in beautiful Montana, he spent many days rock-hounding near the Big Horn River. This early interest led him to a lifelong study of the world of geology. Patrick was trained in secular geology, but after becoming a Christian, he began to seriously reevaluate his previous evolutionary beliefs, and became, instead, a young-earth creationist.
Today, Patrick conducts geology classes (PreK-12) and seminars in the Seattle area, and speaks at numerous home school and church conventions on geology and our young earth. He also leads a variety of geology field trips every year, including Yellowstone Park, where he helps families discover the biblical geology of the Park. Patrick is the vision behind Northwest Treasures, devoted to creating excellent geology kits, curricula and education for all ages. To help in this endeavor, Patrick has written several textbooks on geology. In the fall of 2012, he opened the Geology Learning Center, a museum/educational center in the Seattle area.
Regarding the AGM on Saturday, there will be a time of fellowship, fun, food, and a good talk after a report of what the association has been able to accomplish in the past year. The talk will begin around 8:00 pm after the dinner. An opportunity will be provided to contribute to the work of the association.

Biblical Views on Climate Change and Earth's Age
Dr. Larry Vardiman
While obtaining his PhD, Dr Larry Vardiman served as a research assistant at Colorado State University's Department of Atmospheric Science (1970-74) and as a consulting meteorologist at Western Scientific Services (1973-74). After receiving his degree in Atmospheric Science, he worked as site director for a cloud seeding research program for the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation in Denver, Colorado (1974-82). He also served as a consultant to the Colorado Governor's Advisory Panel on Weather Modification. Dr Vardiman was an officer in the United States Air Force with the Air Weather Service in the Aerospace Modification Division at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois.
Before joining the Institute of Creation Research (ICR), he taught at Christian Heritage College as a Professor of Natural Sciences from 1982 to 1989, serving as Academic Dean from 1987 to 1989. From 1989 to 2009, he was Chairman of the Astro/Geophysics Department at the ICR Graduate School, also serving two years as Chief Operating Officer. Dr. Vardiman was a major participant and director of ICR's Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth (RATE) research project, which resulted in astounding confirmation of a recent creation. He has authored many technical papers and books. Much of his scientific contributions have been in the areas of ice crystal growth and evolution, rain from "the windows of heaven" (Genesis 7:11), the age of the earth's atmosphere, the Ice Age and the Genesis Flood, and catastrophic hurricane formation. His most recent research focused on the Ice Age in Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks, and giant typhoons in the Middle East.
