President RTB ATL Chapter


Part of the Reasons to Believe Mission Statement is "science and faith are, and always will be, allies, not enemies." We seek to use the wonders of nature to point to nature's Creator. RTB Atlanta's monthly meetings on the last Thursday of the month are designed to explore the relation of science and the observation of nature to Christian faith, and involve a presentation plus a time for open discussion. This is a place where you can ask your questions and bear testimony to the answers that you have found to be meaningful to you. You are invited to join us for the meetings, and also to access information about past discussions. Comments by email are welcome, and you can also access us by facebook.


Outlines of some of the past sessions in which I have been involved are posted on the open web under the title "The Book of Nature".

February Meeting

A General Introduction to Reasons to Believe

Presented by

Ben Smith

Ben Smith


January 25th- 7:00 PM

Room 108
955 Johnson Ferry Rd, Marietta
Directions to Johnson Ferry Baptist


Do you know what Reasons To Believe believes? RTB is an apologetics organization built to give reasons why Christianity is true. However, our beliefs differ considerably from the traditional Young Earth Creationist views so popular in many churches. Considering some of the questions we have been getting in our most recent meetings, it seems we have a good number of new people attending, which is excellent, and we welcome you!


What are RTB's beliefs?


So, for the February meeting Ben Smith will be giving a presentation on a general overview of what RTB believes about creation, the age of the Earth, evolution, cavemen, Adam and Eve, Noah's Flood, and more. This would be a great meeting for bringing new guests. If you are a regular attendee, fairly new, or brand new, invite someone to join you for an informative presentation and lively discussion.



Ben Smith has been studying and teaching theology and apologetics for 30 years since becoming a Christian while attending Ga. Tech.  He is the author of the book Genesis, Science, and the Beginning available now on Amazon and Kindle. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian Worldview and Apologetics from Luther Rice University and is the Ratio Christi Chapter Director at the University of West Georgia in Carrollton GA.

Previous Meetings...

January Meeting

Creation, Evolution, and Biblical Inerrancy

Presided by

Dr. Rod Nave


January 25th- 7:00 PM

Room 108
955 Johnson Ferry Rd, Marietta
Directions to Johnson Ferry Baptist


For the January meeting we will visit by video with the entire scholar staff of Reasons to Believe to hear the kinds of questions they field during their ministry. Since RTB takes both the Bible and the "Book of Nature" seriously, many questions arise from how these two interact. "Doesn't emphasis on the "Book of Nature" with its long time periods lend credibility to an evolutionary model?" Or "How does any reliance on the "Book of Nature" square with the claims of Biblical Inerrancy?"


RTB Staff Panel


The video panel discussion addresses these questions and others and we’ll take the opportunity to discuss them as well. This is a good opportunity to get to know the scholars of Reasons to Believe on a more personal basis as well as to refine your answers to these important questions. If you want to get a head start, you could look at the 2017 book "Old-Earth or Evolutionary Creation?" presenting both Reasons to Believe and Biologos positions on these questions.
