This meetup is for folks who are interested in Christianity, science, and origins. We are an extension of the Triangle Association for the Science of Creation (TASC) and reside in Raleigh, NC. We are Christians with technical backgrounds and/or advanced degrees (pathology, electrical engineering, botany, chemistry, geology, medicine, theology) who hold that the scriptures are the Word of God and believe that the Genesis creation account (chapters 1-11) is to be understood as history. We believe that science supports the Genesis account. We have public meetings and publish articles about creation on a monthly basis (tasc-creationscience.org). We meet the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM in room 207 at Providence Baptist Church in Raleigh (6339 Glenwood Avenue). We have a different speaker each month. Talks cover a broad variety of creation related subjects. We welcome all who are seeking to understand what the Bible says about origins including but not limited to the origin of the universe, the origin of life, macroevolution, the fossil record, radiometric dating, the origin of humanity, the Flood, and related topics. You don't need a technical background to join, just an openness to the truth. Our main goal is to defend the integrity of God's Word so that all would see a need for salvation from sins and accept Jesus Christ as their savior. We welcome all non-Christians who are investigating Christianity and want to talk about Genesis and/or Jesus.
