What we're about

Anyone who is interested in science and what the Bible says (and does not say) about science will find our meetings informative. Occasionally we have a philosophically oriented presentation but most are scientifically oriented. We have scientists, engineers, and doctors from our community (RICE, UH, NASA, Medical, Oil & Gas) give informative talks on origins of life, creation of the universe, fine tuning, and exo-planet research (and many more topics).

RTB Chapter Meeting - "Ice Ages - End of Civilization?" by Brandon Reddell, PhD

Topic: End of Civilization? Will all the ice fields and glaciers in Antarctica, Greenland, and the Himalayas melt and drown out all the coastal cities of the world where over a third of world’s population currently lives? Will global warming raise summer daytime temperatures in inland cities to such a degree that millions of people without air conditioning will die from heatstroke? These are some of the concerns being expressed on internet blog sites. The fact is we live in an ice-age cycle and for the past 2.6 million years, whenever the global mean temperature rose by 2–3°C (3–5°F) above the present value, Earth experienced a rapid temperature drop that brought on an ice age that covered 20–23 percent of Earth’s surface in ice hundreds of feet thick. This talk will summarize what recent research is revealing about this paradox of warm temperatures leading to ice-ages and what consequences we can expect from an ice-age. The ice-age cycle is a marvel of design that has afforded us a long period of climate stability allowing for human civilization to thrive, but perhaps there other reasons we should consider.
