The class provides an introduction to the scientific method and a survey of the basic concepts of the biological, natural and physical sciences with a consideration of related questions which confront the biblical Christian worldview. Topics include scientific creationism, theistic evolution, Mt. St. Helens, physical evidence for Noah's Flood, dinosaurs, geochronometers and the origin of the races.
GOALS OF THE COURSE
