How old is the earth? What happened to the dinosaurs? Were Adam and Eve really “Cave Men (and Women?)” This 10-week course applies the principles of Romans 1. Our goal is to tear down the walls of divisibility between the church and science and glorify God through His Creation. We examine how God’s character is exposed by recent scientific discoveries. We discuss the issue of “time,” and we dive into astronomy, biology, and geology to discover an amazing element of “design” that permeates the universe– design that portrays a Designer.
