Millions of Years:

The Idea's Unscientific Origin & Catastrophic Consequences


Terry Mortenson MDiv, PhD.
Apologetics Symposium
February 6th, 2019
Cedar Park Church Bothell, WA


To really understand what is wrong with belief in millions of years, we need to go back to the early 19th century and study the origin of this idea. This unique and interesting lecture, based on Dr. Mortenson’s PhD research, will clearly show that the idea of a very old earth was not the result of just letting the rocks and fossils “speak for themselves” but rather comes from antibiblical worldviews (or philosophical assumptions) being imposed on the geological evidence. The talk explains the key men who helped develop the idea of millions of years, the various ways that Christians responded, and the subsequent consequences of the church’s compromise with millions of years. Even non-Christians would find this lecture thought provoking.


About the Speaker:

Terry MortensonDr. Terry Mortenson holds a PhD in the history of geology from Coventry University in England and an MDiv from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, Dr. Mortenson has lectured on the creation-evolution controversy in 25 countries since the late 1970s. He has spoken in homes, churches, schools (primary, middle, and secondary), secular universities, Bible colleges, and seminaries. Several of his popular lectures have been produced as DVDs and as TV programs. He has also participated in seven formal debates with PhD evolutionary scientists in secular venues in four countries.

 He is the author of numerous magazine and journal articles and several book chapters. The revised version of his PhD thesis was published as The Great Turning Point: the Church’s Catastrophic Mistake on Geology—Before Darwin (2004). With a deep burden to reach seminary professors and students, he co-edited and contributed two chapters to the scholarly 14-author book Coming to Grips with Genesis: Biblical Authority and the Age of the Earth (2008), and he edited and contributed to the 16-author book Searching for Adam: Genesis & the Truth About Man’s Origin (2016).

Dr. Mortenson is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS), has presented seven creation-related papers at ETS annual meetings, and spearheaded the formation of the Creation study group sessions at the ETS annual meeting, beginning in 2008. Since that same year, he has also helped to lead annual, by-invitation-only, seven-day raft trips down the Colorado River through Grand Canyon for more than 210 seminary and Christian college professors and other key Christian leaders from over 110 schools, churches, and organizations, and from 15 countries.
