The Creation Education Museum Speaker Series, “Creation Speaks”.

In addition to the Creation Education Museum, classes, and outdoor activities we also offer a very well-done speaker series. The Creation Education Museum committee is working diligently to find powerful speakers that you and your family can learn from. The Creation Education Museum has held Creation Speaks at our location, but we also enjoy working with local churches who support creation and will participate in promoting the event to their surrounding communities and their congregation.

What can you expect at one of our Creation Speaks? We’ve hosted Grand Canyon exploration specialists, geologists, doctors of various studies, and apologetic experts. You’ll enjoy creation specialists such as Jonathan Sarfati, Nate Loper, Pat Roy and many more.

Speaker Series “Creation Speaks”
Presents: One Human Family
Speaker: Doctor Al Gotch
Location: Akron Fossils & Science Center’s Creation Museum
Date: March 15, 2024
Time: 7pm

About: Are we all related? Recent DNA studies suggest that all humans are descended from a single point of origin. Based on the current genetic load, and the diversity factors that have produced mankind as we see it today, the conclusions about human life on the planet are fascinating and unexpected. Come and learn about the recent discoveries that have led researchers to understand that our arrival on the planet was relatively recent and despite what we consider to be stark differences – the variability between everyone on the planet is actually quite small. Could we all be part of the same human family, and how does this line up with the history found in the pages of the Bible? 

Bio: Dr. Al Gotch was born and raised in the Cleveland, Ohio, area and received his B.A. in Chemistry from Thiel College in Greenville, Pennsylvania.  He then completed his M.S. in Chemistry and Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at Purdue University, studying artificial photosynthesis and small molecule gas phase clusters respectively.  He taught college chemistry for 20 years at three different state and private institutions and was department chair for nine of those years at the last two institutions.  At each he led and managed the growth of the chemistry program.  He worked with over 30 undergraduate and high school science students on research, published 12 peer reviewed papers, and has given dozens of presentations on a wide-range of topics including photosynthesis, electrochemistry, fluorescence spectroscopy, molecular structure, chemical education, philosophy of science, macroemulsions, alternative energy, and renewable chemical feedstocks. He worked for five years as a Senior Analytical Chemist at an environmental testing lab where he developed and ran EPA approved methods for drinking water and soil samples. He currently is Lead Analyst and EHS Compliance Officer at Auris Noble, LLC assisting in process development and recycling of super alloy and other high value materials for the aviation and chemical industries.

7pm EST Friday, December 1st  The Genesis of Worldliness by: Dr. Anthony Silvestro

About: Homosexuality, drag queen story hour, critical race theory, and rampant sin are everywhere.

The culture today seems to be so far away from God already, and we are witnessing it worsening by the minute.

The reality is the secular world has been against God since Satan deceived Eve about 6000 years ago. Why? Because humans have questioned the truthfulness and authority of God’s Word, especially, the book of Genesis. Once a person arbitrarily decides one part of the Bible is incorrect, it opens up the rest of the Scriptures to be open to humanism and man’s fallible interpretation. Sadly, this also includes a lot of churches today.

This session will cover: the Biblical proofs that the days of creation were literal, 24-hours days, biblical proofs that the entire universe is only about 6000 years old, and the theological problems when a professing Christian does not hold to a biblical creation account (6 days, 6000 years old). In addition, it will also teach you how to Biblically and scientifically refute homosexuality, transgenderism, and critical race theory.

Biography: Dr. Anthony R. Silvestro, Jr., was once an unsaved evolutionist but now is an avid Biblical creationist – teaching adults and kids alike that God didn’t create man from ape-like creatures, and that the Bible can be trusted from beginning to end, starting with the book of Genesis!

Dr. Silvestro resides in a suburb of Cleveland, OH, with his wife Julie, and his son, Anthony III.   After receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Math and Chemistry from Baldwin-Wallace College, he attended The Ohio State University College of Dentistry and received his dental degree.  Dr. Silvestro continues to practice general dentistry in Middleburg Hts., OH, and is also trained in most of the dental specialties.

After years of training and self-study, Dr. Silvestro speaks for Creation Revival and Creation Training Initiative, with former Answers in Genesis speaker, Mike Riddle, on many popular topics.  He also trains new evangelists at Ray Comfort’s Ambassador’s Academy every year.  You may have even seen him in a few Christian movies: American Gospel, and American Gospel 2!

Christians have benefitted by his teaching at conferences, youth groups, and Christian radio shows, including Fan-favorites include presuppositional apologetics for the layperson, problems with the social justice movement and critical race theory, Biblical evangelism, and street-level apologetics to be able to witness to anyone, even your family members at the Christmas dinner table!  He also teaches on Biblical Creation and how science supports the Biblical account of creation as well as the age of the earth.

Dr. Silvestro especially enjoys teaching presuppositional apologetics, the biblical apologetic method, to help equip Christians to proclaim the Gospel.  He published his first book, On the Origin of Kinds, to help teach Christians how to Biblically evangelize using the Law and Gospel while answering any objection to the Christian worldview.

His book, On the Origin of Kinds, is one-of-a-kind.  While many fantastic books exist that teach Biblical evangelism, presuppositional apologetics, and creation apologetics separately, there are not any that put everything together into one easy-to-apply book like this does.  In this book, you will learn how to Biblically evangelize, using the Law and the Gospel, and to handle the most common objections using presuppositional and creation apologetics.


Dr. Silvestro can be contacted by email or phone to book a training seminar at your church, conference, or Bible study!

Doctor Todd Charles Wood Presents:

“Cavemen” in the Holy Land???” 

About: Yes, you read that right!  So-called “cave-men” once walked where Jesus walked – literally!  From the caves of Mt. Carmel to the shores of Galilee, we’ll examine amazing discoveries that help us trace the history of humanity from the Flood to the arrival of the Canaanites.  This journey will take us from the early traces of humanity in the north, where people fished and cooked their food, to the widespread Neandertal presence (including Jesus’ “homebase” of Capernaum), to the more familiar signs of culture in the archaeological record, we’ll discover how humanity survived AFTER the Flood.

Biography: Todd Charles Wood is a graduate of Liberty University (Summa Cum Laude).  He earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Virginia in 1999, with an emphasis in computational biology and protein evolution.  After a post-doctoral fellowship working on the rice genome at Clemson University, he spent 13 years at Bryan College and launched Core Academy of Science in 2013.  Core Academy is a creation ministry that nurtures the next generation of Christ-like creation researchers to explore the hardest problems in creation.  He has authored or co-authored more than 60 technical papers, including papers in Science, Journal of Evolutionary Biology, and Answers Research Journal.  He’s written six books, including his most recent books, The Quest: Exploring Creation’s Hardest Problems and The Fool and the Heretic, written with Darrel Falk and Rob Barrett.When: Friday, October 20th at 7pm (doors open at 6:30)  RSVP: creation@akronfossils.orgWhere: Akron Fossils and Science Center 2080 S Cleveland Massillon Rd, Akron, OH 44321 

Presenter: Nate Loper, July 21, 2023 

Grand Canyon: A Flood of Evidence
No other place on earth exhibits evidence of the global Flood in Genesis quite like the Grand Canyon. Learn of the “rock-solid” features found there that support the biblical account. Then hear the latest in ongoing field research and geologic modeling related to the carving of the Grand Canyon itself.

Nate Loper is the Executive Director for Canyon Ministries, a Christian organization that has been providing guided trips and tours of the Grand Canyon from a biblical creation perspective for over 25 years. Nate has personally spent nearly 1,000 days studying and teaching at the Grand Canyon on various rim tours and river trips. With a love for geology, history, and archaeology, he has led numerous tours through national parks and museums around the world for the past 20 years.

Presenter: Pat Roy, Journey to Novarupta
Saturday  Feb. 25th, 2023    7 to 8:30pm 

The biggest eruption in modern times happened in the Alaskan Peninsula in 1912. It was 30 times larger than Mount Saint Helens. A couple of years later Dr. Robert Griggs led an expedition into the blast zone. His book would inspire another explorer almost a hundred years later to return to this amazing wilderness to document the evidence for a worldwide flood, and the biblical history found in the rocks. Join Pat Roy, creator of the Jonathan Park Audio Adventures, for amazing faith-building stories of adventure!

Creation on the Road!

The Creation Education Museum also has speakers that can travel to you!  We are currently offering an “Introduction to Creation Science” presented by David Robles.  See the information contact card below to contact David and book him to speak to your congregation about this incredible topic!

“I heard Dave Robles give an impressive talk regarding the evidence of design seen throughout microbiology, the fossil record, and into the known universe. His lecture showed his passion for the subject and his wide knowledge base. I was excited to learn more by the end, but the time limit of course kept the presentation to a reasonable length. He had much more to say, however, and I am looking forward to his next presentation!”

Dennis T.

“Get ready to be wowed. Dave brings his passion for Creation science and defending the truth in his Introduction to Creation Science. It will instruct and encourage the Christian and challenge the unbeliever. Not to be missed.”

Ben P.

“Dave brings a fascinating presentation of creation, science and global disaster from a solid biblical viewpoint. Dave is a wealth of knowledge from years of study on these subjects. This is enjoyed by both Adults and young people alike.”
