Brian & Aimee Mariani

Brian and Aimee Mariani were both 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. Aimee has spent many
years teaching campers about God’s creation at a Christian living history camp.
They met 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.

Topic for June 21st-
-Geologic Mysteries of the Pacific Northwest (The Missoula Flood)
In the Pacific Northwest, there are incredible geologic features often overlooked.
Huge layers and columns of basalt rock cover hundreds of square miles – evidence of
massive volcanism in the past. Large river channels (like the Columbia River Gorge
among others) and valleys have been since carved through that hard basalt rock. Huge
boulders are left scattered in fields as well as pesky water-worn boulders in farmer’s
fields. Be the scientist to best interpret what has happened in the region.
