Sandy River Day Walk
with Ralph Anderson: September 6th, 2014
Three million hours (about 350 years) ago, Mount
Hood erupted, sending hot ash and boulders larger than vans 8 miles
down the Sandy River, burying and destroying the existing trees
down the valley. Some burned cedar snags (dead trees) far enough
from the main channel remain standing and some that rotted away
have left tree wells that extend down to 30 feet deep.
Walk and drive on that devastation on September
Meet leader Ralph Anderson at the Zigzag Ranger
Station (off Hwy 26) to the south (upon entering Zigzag) at 9:00AM.
Bring your lunch and walking stick in case the
foot bridge has been removed. This is a 4 mile hike up and back
from the Ramona Falls parking lot.
No registration is necessary, but a forest parking
permit is required at the parking lot, obtainable at the ranger
station for $5.
For more info: call Ralph Anderson at 503-658-3046
Atheism with Science
Many atheists claim that science disproves the Bible. Despite
these claims, science is actually quite consistent with Scripture.
Christians often feel unequipped to defend their faith in
this area -- but this need not be so.
Instead, any Christian can defend his or her faith against
any scientific claim from an atheist, even without knowing the
details of that particular claim. Why? Because science itself
Atheism, when taken to its logical conclusion, denies the
fundamental assumptions and requirements of science. Therefore, if
science is valid, then atheism must be false.
Join us as we discuss how Christians can defend their faith
in all areas of science. After a brief discussion of specific
evidence like fossils, radiometric dating, and intelligent design,
we'll dig deeper and see how science itself disproves atheism.
Understanding a few fundamental ideas about science are all that's
necessary for any Christian to be well-equipped in this area.

States Space Command, advancing from Scientific Programmer Analyst
to Senior Systems Engineer before going into business for himself
as a Consultant, which enables him to spend more time with his
family, homeschooling his sons, and doing Creation ministry.
