The Ultimate Proof of Creation

This is an excellent presentation by Dr. Jason Lisle, where he provides evidence for a Creator, but also teaches how to practice a method of apologetic debate he calls "don't answer, answer." I found this lecture to be very enlightening and encouraging, and I hope you will, as well.

I had nothing come along to challenge my perception that all was right with the world; that everyone shared -- or at least accepted -- my beliefs, and that confrontation about such things would be minimal throughout my life.
