Hugh Ross and Fuz Rana are doing a huge event at the University of Texas TONIGHT. They are projecting about 4,000 to be in attendance. They will present an overview of Reasons To Believe's testable creation model and then Michael Shermer, who heads up the Skeptics Society, will respond with his critique.
This is one of the (many) things that I really appreciate about working at RTB. By adopting a non-combative, but yet testable approach to the Bible, Hugh and Fuz can make solid presentations in front of secular audiences and be heard. These forums have met with great success, including a strong atheist (and Nobel prize in science winner) came to Christ a few years ago! In the last few years, RTB scholars have made presentations to UCLA, Yale, Texas A&M, Washington, Ohio State, Illinois, UC Davis, Cal Tech, and Rice. People are listening!
Please pray for "the guys" (as we call them) and pray that God will open the minds and hearts of some of those in attendance to "see" the evidence for Jesus Christ as the Creator and Savior.
UPDATE 4/29: Here are some pics from Fuz's Facebook page from the Austin event last night. I haven't heard any actual reports about how it went or how many were there. But I'll post something once I find out.
I think this one is of Michael Shermer.
These are of Hugh and Fuz answering questions after the forum.
P.S. If you're into the whole Facebook thing, be sure to Friend "Fazale Rana." If he accepts you, you'll get a real good flavor for our behind-the-scenes RTB antics. And right now he's posting from Austin.
