Arizona Origin Science Association Meeting March 28

(Originally scheduled for March 21, this meeting will take place on March 28 instead.)  The Arizona Origin Science Association (AZOSA) will be meeting Tuesday, March 28 at 7:00 pm at the Payson Public Library Meeting Room. Mike Riddle, president of the Creation Training Initiative, will present "4 Power Questions to ask an Evolutionist." If you have anyone in your circle of influence who likes to challenge your views on biblical origins, posing these 4 questions will provide you with evidence that your opponent will not be able to disprove!

Further, these 4 foundational questions establish why evolution cannot be defended scientifically and must rely on faith.

The seminar shows how the layperson can successfully witness to an evolutionist.

This meeting, as with all AzOSA meetings, is open to the public and is FREE!

The featured speaker, Mike Riddle, has a B.A. from Colorado State University, and an M. Ed. from Pepperdine University.  In addition to being president of the Creation Training Initiative , Mr. Riddle is also an Adjunct Staff member for Answers in Genesis.

LaVoy Finicum - Part 1, by Senator Sylvia Allen

He was born in the back hills of Northern Arizona, hunting and riding horses with his father and siblings.  Born within him was a love for God, family and freedom.  "We need to put God first in our lives, strengthen our families, and fight to restore our freedoms."  LaVoy Finicum

This is a two-part update on the death of rancher LaVoy Finicum at the hands of the FBI and Oregon State Police.  Western ranchers had gone to Oregon in support of the Hammond family.  Their peaceful protest was labeled by law enforcement and some elected officials as domestic terrorism.  Federal statutes were used to prosecute western ranchers who were trying to bring national attention to the overreach of federal agencies in taking western ranchers' leases.
