TASC meets every 2nd Thursday, at 7pm, in Room 237, Providence Baptist Church, 6339 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh, NC 27612 across from Pleasant Valley Promenade and Townridge Square shopping centers, north of Crabtree Valley Mall.
Published by NPA as a Monograph separately bound from the Proceedings of their 2013 Conference, Cosmology and the Zero Point Energy summarizes over 35 years of Barry Setterfield's research in fields of astronomy, physics, geology, and some biology (clues regarding gigantism in the fossil record). Lay-friendly. 465 pages long. Soft bound. Basic cost is $35. $10 is added for shipping in the United States and $20 for international shipping.
"I am amazed and deeply impressed by your book. You show great skill in taking the reader right on beyond today's best secular physics... You speak like a very polite scholar as you stand on the shoulders of giants and move their work forward by light years ... you have filled in many gaps in recent research work making your work more convincing and fitting in many answers. The overall quality is excellent and easy to follow." physicist Lambert Dolphin
An Evaluation of the Fossil Record Evidence by Professor Jerry Bergman is an absolutely extraordinary book of 20 chapters. I have had the great privilege and honor of proofreading books for him for many years now. This book, in particular, I believe will be important evidence in helping to deal the death blow to evolution's use of the fossil record to advance their theory of the evolution of simple molecules-to-man fairy tale. I predict it will be a best-seller, and profoundly impact this and future generations.

As a biology researcher who has published in the peer reviewed scientific literature, and also a lifetime college biology professor for 40 years, I am pleased to state that, as I read the draft of the manuscript of this book, I was so intrigued that, when finishing each chapter, I eagerly looked forward to the next fascinating chapter! I co-wrote chapter on turtles with Dr. Bergman, an area I have publisher numerous peer reviewed articles on, and completed a PhD on this topic as well.

TASC - Triangle Association for the Science of Creation
TASC endeavors to show Christians and others in the Triangle area that the facts of science are consistent with the Biblical account of origins and inconsistent with the evolutionary worldview.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. (Romans 1:18-21 New American Standard Bible [NASB])
While I was studying chemistry in graduate school at the University of Texas, I befriended a physics graduate student, who was studying echolocation in bats in the hopes that the research might result in helpful technologies for blind people. One day he invited me to his lab to watch as he fed the bats. We entered a small room where dozens of bats eagerly waited for a dinner of yellow grub worms. Many of the bats were hanging from the ceiling but others were flying around us yet never touching us. I looked at one bat on the ceiling as he looked down at us. His mouth was open and his lips quivered as he rapidly rotated his head round and round. I was fascinated. The bat was using his echolocation capability, akin to sonar, to map out the environment. Bats would drop from the ceiling and fly around us then go for the food. My friend’s research revealed that different parts of the bat’s brain were activated depending on the frequency and direction of sound received.
