Dr. Joseph Kezele presents “You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby!” discussing the transition from prenatal to postnatal circulation. This fascinating presentation discusses the physical changes that must occur in the circulatory system for a baby to make the transition from life in the womb to the outside world. Many of the contributing factors that stimulate these changes are also given, demonstrating the irreducible complexity of the mammalian system of giving birth. A medical case history is presented with a surprise ending, and the relevance of all of this to Genesis is demonstrated.
Joseph Kezele studied the sciences and music at the University of Arizona, while earning his B.A. in Russian in 1971, and his M.D. in 1975. He then completed a Pediatric Residency and practiced Emergency Medicine for 25 years in the Phoenix area, and was a diplomate of the American Board of Emergency Medicine and fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He is now retired from the practice of medicine, serves as President of the Arizona Origin Science Association, is Adjunct Professor at Arizona Christian University in Phoenix, teaching Human Genetics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Pathophysiology, Organic Chemistry and Creation Science Apologetics. Dr, Kezele has also been named a Logos Research Associate. He had the privilege of participating in a dinosaur dig in Montana and excavated the triceratops cervical condyle from which Mark Armitage isolated intact osteocytes in soft tissue.
He has participated in over 20 foreign mission trips, teaching medicine, standard evangelism and creation science evangelism in India, Zambia, Mexico, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Ukraine, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Armenia. Dr. Kezele is one of the principle presenters in the Institute for Creation Research’s 4 DVD series Made in His Image. Most recently he returned to the Ukraine in May of this year for three weeks to teach a series on Creation Science Evangelism as part of the activities prompted by the proclamation of the President of the Ukraine recognizing the 500th anniversary of the Reformation ignited by Marth Luther in Germany.
