Dr. Ariel Roth is widely recognized as being one of the founding father’s of a scientific form of creationism within the Adventist Church. He has written popular books on origins that have been widely read in many different languages around the world (Origins, Linking Science and Scripture and Science Discovers God) and has spent much of his life teaching about and promoting the scientific evidence for the credibility of the Biblical view of origins – to include a literal 6-day creation week and a truly worldwide Noachian Flood as being responsible for much of the geologic column and fossil record. In this line, Dr. Roth has put together a series of PowerPoint presentations (these presentations also open in LibreOffice or OpenOffice programs) as an aid for teachers in our high schools and colleges, and even grade schools, to present an introduction to the scientific evidence for creation to their students.
Such materials are rather difficult to find in a pre-prepared lecture format for teachers to use and modify according to the needs of their classes. So, Dr. Roth’s contribution of “Seventeen discussions about sciences and Scriptures, prepared for the general reader, elementary and secondary students and their teachers” is an important step in helping to establish a modern educational curriculum for students in our Adventist school system on the topic of origins – and couldn’t come at a more needed time for our church.
The lecture materials can be found on and freely downloaded from Dr. Roth’s website:SciencesandScriptures.com
