This article is my testimony of faith in God our Creator and Christ our Creator and Savior, Genesis 1:1, John 1:1-18, Colossians 1:12-20.
We are excited to announce that the Triangle Association for the Science of Creation's (TASC's) Restoring the Truth about Origins: Book II is now available! We pray and hope you will purchase copies for yourself, your children, and friends as gifts to enjoy and be better edified on this important topic of origins. What we think about our origins has had a profound influence on the thinking and actions in our society in the past and today and will in the future, especially on our children. So we encourage you to get copies today (see ordering information under Availability and Purchase heading below and note particularly our current Christmas Special 25% Discount for purchases of Books I and II)!
Restoring the Truth About Origins: Books I and II provide a lasting testimony with praise and glory to God our Creator and Christ our Creator and Savior, Genesis chapters 1–11 and Colossians 1:14–17. Now, the publishing and availability of Restoring the Truth About Origins: Book II represents an additional contribution to TASC. TASC will receive a portion of the sales to provide more sufficient funding of our services, particularly more creation/creation science (C/CS) conferences that are needed. With this expected additional funding, we have already stepped out on faith and scheduled a C/CS conference for 2020. Importantly, this Restoring the Truth About Origins: Book II strongly supports our TASC mission, which is to rebuild and strengthen the foundation of the Christian faith by increasing awareness of the scientific evidence supporting the literal Biblical account of creation and refuting evolution. Are we the result of blind chemical and physical processes, or of the creative act of a loving, all-powerful God?

For this month’s newsletter article I will take the opportunity to share two creation / creation science messages that will help you become equipped to share and encourage you to share with others. One is The Triangle Association for the Science of Creation (TASC) upcoming, September 8, Origins 2012 Conference.
TASC is an acronym that stands for the Triangle Association for the Science of Creation. We publish newsletters and articles dealing with science, creation and God.

Mark your calendars: TASC has been invited to present a series on creation this winter and spring at Grace Church, which meets on the campus of North Carolina State University. The 12 classes in the series are open to the public and will be held on Sunday nights from 6:30 to 8:00 PM starting January 25. TASC will use the new video series from the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) entitled Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis as the framework for the classes.
The complete schedule is below:
Editor's Note: Dr. Van Dyke is Professor Emeritus of Botany at North Carolina State University, having taught there 38 years. He is a cofounder of TASC and has served in several positions, including chairman. In this article, Dr. Van Dyke relates how his academic and spiritual histories reflect God's faithfulness. As the scripture teaches: "for them that honor me I will honor" (1 Sam 2:30).
The creation/evolution debate is a critical battle ground for the hearts and minds of everyone. What we think about our origins impacts everything we think about the world and ourselves. If human beings are merely the result of natural law working over billions of years as materialists claim, then any action we “choose” can be justified since we become the arbiters of right and wrong. Our culture is becoming increasingly secular in its thinking and policies.
