Tower of Babel Conference

The Tower of Babel a Biblical Reality with Dr. Rob Carter



September 23-24, 2016 | REGISTER HERE

First Presbyterian Church of Coral Springs and Creation Studies Institute will host a two-day conference. Dr. Robert Carter of Creation Ministries International will speak about the relevance of Biblical creation and its direct impact on how we view race, culture and science. Our congregation, our community, and our nation are becoming more diverse with increasing conflicts among people groups. This weekend’s events are designed to train people in how to have biblical conversations about God’s plan of reconciliation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Spanish translation is available.

Following the conference we will host an interactive hands-on workshop for the entire family at The Creation Discovery Museum. Registration is required. Space is limited.

Friday Evening 7:00 - 9:30 PM

First Presbyterian Church of Coral Springs
2251 Riverside Drive
Coral Springs, FL 33065

First Session : The Mystery of Ancient Man & the Days of Noah

The book of Genesis clearly claims that all people descend from the eight people who were on Noah's Ark. Can this possibly be true? What does science have to say? It turns out that science supports the Flood account. For example, it is clear that all people are closely related, to the point where there are hardly any genetic differences between the "races".  It is also true that all people have but one male ancestor (that would be Noah). These and many other facts supporting the Flood narrative will be discussed.

Saturday  Morning  8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

First Presbyterian Church of Coral Springs
2251 Riverside Drive
Coral Springs, FL 33065

Second Session: The Mystery of Ancient Man & the Tower of Babel

The book of Genesis claims that at one point in early human history there was a single population that became subdivided and separated. We call this the Tower of Babel event, and it has significant scientific implications. If this really happened, there should be evidence that all people came from a small population, that we were separated into small bands, that we moved into uninhabited territory starting in the Middle East, and that all of this happened in the relatively recent past. Would it surprise you to learn that all of this has been discovered? Modern science supports the Tower of Babel account.

Tom DeRosa

Our Executive Director & Founder, Tom DeRosa left the seminary and the church thinking he was throwing away his faith, but in reality, he had only found a new religion: evolution. However, in 1978, he accepted Jesus Christ as Lord of his life. Soon after, he studied the area of Creation at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and has come to the conclusion that a lack of knowledge of the biblical account of creation is greatly responsible for many barriers that keep people from Christ.

Bible Studies

In His Image Series


Meets on Fridays from 7:00pm to 8:30pm | Register Here


What did it mean for God to create Adam and Eve
“In His image?”


26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them, Genesis 1:26-27.

In this series, we will examine in detail what happened to Adam, Eve and the rest of humanity as a result of the Fall as recorded in the third chapter of the book of Genesis. What was implied in the first messianic prophecy of the Hebrew Bible, Gen. 3:15? It is the purpose of this teaching to discover God’s plan as revealed in Genesis and fulfilled in the gospel of Messiah Jesus. We will be making a practical application of the gospel, I Cor. 15:3-4, to the everyday lives of those who have placed their faith in the risen Savior. It is in the gospel that the curses of the Fall are reversed, Rom. 5:12-19; John 11:25-26.

During In His Image, we will study exactly how the Gospel enables believers to overcome the world, the flesh, and the Devil by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. We will study several subjects that are pertinent to living a faith, hope and love lifestyle and fulfilling our destiny as priests and priestesses of the Most High God and ministers of the gospel of reconciliation.

It is the teacher’s prayer that all who attend In His Image will pray Eph. 1:18-19, and receive the full benefit of the gospel in their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

Creation Studies Institute’s “In His Image” is based upon “The Exchanged Life Series.” For further information email or call (954) 771-1652.

Evidences for Creation
Tom DeRosa will take you through his book, Evidences for Creation and demonstrate overwhelmingly that the evidences from the heavens, from the earth, from life and from man, all point to a Creator, God. See the importance of teaching children how to look at the evidences in a scientific way so that one can make intelligent and informed decisions. This session will help you learn how to destroy the two great columns that evolution stands on, chance and time, with solid irrevocable evidence. The goal is not only to destroy the philosophy and doctrine of evolution, but also to bring others closer to seeing God through His wonderful creation. The answers to many questions will be presented in an easy to understand manner.

Giant Ice Age Creatures from a Creationist’s Perspective

Learn how mammoths and sharks 50 feet in length made their home in Florida. See firsthand how giant sloths, beavers, and llamas found Florida to be the ideal place to live during the Ice Age. Take an imaginary trip down the Peace River in central Florida and discover a fantastic fossil graveyard where the most unique Ice Age fossils are found. Learn about the Ice Age; a post flood phenomenon and how it made central Florida a great place to hunt all kinds of fossils. Share in the excitement with Tom DeRosa, President of Creation Studies Institute, who has lead many expeditions down the river as he relates to a discovery of a heard of mammoths in Arcadia, Florida. It has been recognized as one of the most significant finds in Florida. He will explain how homeschool families can get involved in fossil hunting, making for a great educational experience.

Dinosaurs, God’s Amazing Creatures
Dinosaurs have always captured the imagination of both young and old. They have been used to promote the horrific lie of evolution to the general public (including our children) through such shows as; Walking with Dinosaurs. Christian Educators and parents should be teaching a completely different story because we really DID walk with dinosaurs. We need to be encouraging the study of these amazing animals that are, as the Bible states, the first among the works of God (Job 40:19.) Tom DeRosa, a well known and respected educator will help you understand how dinosaurs can be used as an instrument to teach the principles of creation. Learn how you and your family can get involved in the actual experience of digging up dinosaurs and Ice Age creatures in future field trips and how these educational excursions will help you stand firmer in your faith than ever before.

Evolution’s Fatal Fruit
In this session, Tom DeRosa introduces you to evolution's roots as he expounds on his new book, Evolution's Fatal Fruit: How Darwin's Tree of Life Brought Death to Millions. Take a closer look at Charles Darwin and the Grim consequences to which his theory of evolution has led. A Cambridge divinity graduate with a penchant for natural science, Darwin gave the world an explanation of life that helped fuel the ovens at Auschwitz. Tom explains how Hitler tried to use genocide to speed up evolution, and reveals how the American eugenics movement-which favored sterilization to cleanse the gene pool-is likewise indebted to Darwin.

The Long History of Evolution
Did Evolution begin with Darwin? It has always been around. Trace a historical line from the beginning of time to our present day and demonstrate how evolution is used to promote man as the center.

The Horrific Consequences of Evolution
Over the years evolution thinking has reached every discipline. It gives man an excuse to take part in corrupt behavior as in abortion, racism, sexual promiscuity, and homosexuality. Evolution has given motivation for hideous social institutions to be born as Communism and Nazism.

The Great Evolutionary War
What are the major arguments the Evolutionist is presenting today to support their theory. How does a Creationist respond? The Open-system argument and the new Chaos Theory will be addressed; Learn the vocabulary so that you can be better witness for Jesus Christ.

The Importance of Genesis
Learn to identify the reality of all times. See how the Scripture is supported by the monumental historical events of all times as stated in the first eleven chapters of Genesis. Understand that Genesis is a foundation for all Christian doctrine. Demonstrate how the theory of Evolution is so prominent in every area of worldly thinking.

An Order for Creation
Study the order of creation as stated in the first chapter of Genesis. See how the cosmos gives testimony to God no a Big Bang. Witness a logical progression of inherent interdependency of all created things. Observe the purpose and plan for the created world as revealed in the scriptures.

A Focus on Man
See the harmony that existed before the fall - with man and God and with man and the Creation. The meaning of a human being and creativity will be defined. Understand that man created in God's image has been attacked historically and the tremendous social consequences for not acknowledging the Creator. 

Death and the Fall
Man is not only cursed because of his sin but the creation is in bondage. See the tremendous implications this has in the cosmos and on man. The basic scientific laws that propel the universe have their origins found in the scriptures. Observations will be given on the death concept; the most difficult for a non-believer to understand and for Christians to altercate. See how the heavens give testimony to a curse. 

The Great Flood
Be ready to give intelligent answers that support overwhelming worldwide flood as stated in Genesis 6-9. Witness the dynamic testimony that rocks cry out pointing to a castrophy that was driven by the waters beneath and above. Evidence is everywhere and Christians should be able to share these facts. 

Genesis Compromised
It is apparent that great comprise exists for many of the contemporary theologians as they make statements that a day is not a 24 hour day-a day could be representative of millions and millions of years. A thorough examination of the scriptures will set in place a creation created in mature state with an appearance of age. The following theories will be defined and problems with each will be discussed: Theistic Evolution, Progressive Creation, Day-Age Theory, Gap Theory and the Framework Hypothesis. 

The Rocks and Fossil Cry Out
Examine the fossil record and witness the great testimony of a catastrophic flood - not millions of years of geological history. See first hand the overwhelming evidence of catastrophic model of Mt. St. Helens demonstrating a young earth. Learn that the rocks cry out - a young earth. 

The Young Earth
This will be a continuation of the young earth demonstrating the inherent scientific problems including radiometric dating exposing the apparent evolutionary bias for dating rocks. Numerous methods of dating the earth and the universe will be introduced demonstrating younger ages agreeing with Biblical chronology. 

Life – a Testimony of a Creator
Focus on the chemistry of life and one will appreciate the wonderful work of their creator. Learn how to show the probability of life to originate from inanimate objects is zero. See first- hand the complexity of human life and see the miracle of life. 

After it’s own Kind
All living things follow the basic principle; after their kind. Witness this principle in past as revealed in the fossil record. See this principle today as it is demonstrated in the dynamics of DNA. Observe the awesome Creator's fine work in the details of life. 

Caveman- Fossil Man
Is there a Lucy? Was there an ape-man? How do your answer the hominid fossil finds, as the secular world perceives our distant relative as monkeys; swinging from the trees. See the uniqueness of human beings as they bear testimony to their Creator God.

Fossil hunting in arcadia florida

Ice Age Fossil Float Adventure


April 28 - 30, 2023 | Age Group: 5 & up 


When was the last time you had a chance to get away from the noise of the city and focus your thoughts on God and His creation? CSI gives you the opportunity to do just that every year on our amazing Fossil Float expeditions!

What is a Fossil Float?

It is an exciting adventure canoeing and digging for fossils. If you have ever panned for gold you know that the findings are few and far between. However, if you pan for fossils in the Peace River, you strike pay dirt every time!

This area of Florida, rich with phosphates, is known as a Fossil Graveyard. Over the last decade we have taken over 11,000 people, young and old, down the Peace River, where they have learned that there is substantial evidence of a world-wide flood as recorded in the Bible.

How else would you explain the findings of Whale Vertebra, or teeth of the Megalodon shark that would grow as large as 70 feet in length, in a river that is located some 30 miles from the Gulf of Mexico?

The findings of the Wholly Mammoth, Saber-tooth Cat and the Giant Sloth, gives affirmation to the bible reference of a great ice age.

During a CSI sponsored Fossil Float in April of 1996, Greg Reuter discovered a Columbian Mammoth at the Peace River Campground in Arcadia, Florida. Since then, CSI has sponsored special excavations at this site, which appears to be a fossil graveyard for a herd of mammoths that met their demise during the Ice Age. CSI has excavated the mammoth site three times and it is believed they have found a herd of Columbian Mammoths. The partial skeletons of three mammoths are on display at the Creation Discovery Museum in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

What you will learn:


You will learn how to identify fossils, and make the connection to God as the creator. You will also learn to canoe and enjoy each other as you frolic in the cool waters together.

We end our exciting weekend adventure with a BBQ on Saturday evening. Happy faces fill the room as the finds are identified and the prizes are given for the most unique find, the most of one kind, and the largest and most complete fossils found.

Sunday is given to worship
We thank God for His goodness and His beautiful creation with a Sunday morning worship service. Our new found friends receive the ability to refute evolutionary teachings and go on to proclaim God as our Creator.
