Raised with a solid foundation and a deep passion for God’s word, science, and God’s Creation. In public schools and secular universities, Brian saw the deception of evolution all around him. He later taught the credibility of creation and the pervasiveness of evolution from a Biblical perspective as a science teacher at a Christian high school. Brian met his wife Aimee at a Bible College that strengthened their creation worldview where Brian also had the opportunity to be one of the main researchers and contributors to the book, The Genius of Ancient Man. Brian and Aimee joined AOI in 2013 because they have a passion to teach others about God through history, science, and His creation. They have been hard at work developing AOI’s Discover Creation Training Institute.

Astronomy: Declaring the Glory of God
Astronomy is the study of the galaxies, stars, planets, moons and ultimately the whole universe. In this presentation, you will learn how the wrong assumptions lead to wrong conclusions that don’t fit the observations. We will consider questions like: Was there really a Big Bang? How do stars, planets, and moons form? What is Dark Matter and Dark Energy? Learn some of the biggest challenges to the naturalistic/evolutionary perspectives that could demolish the supposed billions of years of history.
Engaging the Culture: Students with Evidence and the Gospel
Brian Mariani will share some of his strategies for reaching out to people using surveys, questions, and conversations. Our culture is filled with a lot of confusion and misinformation. It is so often hard to know what is true – or maybe more importantly how to think. Brian will share some of his exciting experiences interacting with people of different beliefs. He will give you an introduction into using those surveys to get into conversation with family, friends or even strangers that will hopefully lead to Gospel opportunities!
