Course description: Fourteen one-hour weekly classes. For the past 200 years, scientists have developed and presented a well-crafted history of earth that involves its own timetable, geological artifacts, and scientific terminology. This now serves to teach that Genesis is myth. In Introduction to Biblical Geology, the student will begin to understand the nature of modern geological thought and its academic language. Study will include vocabulary; the history of modern geology; geological issues surrounding the origin of the universe (including our earth); the Flood of Genesis; the Ice Age; and a Biblical framework for interpreting landforms and rocks. Students will be able to interact with the instructor either via chat or in real-time discussion.

  1. Bedrock Geology (provided by instructor)
  2. Genesis Rock Solid (provided by teacher)
  3. 36 rock, mineral, and fossil specimens (provided by teacher, see below*)

Part 2 (3 weeks) – Covering geological issues in the origin of the universe and our Earth

Part 3 (8 weeks) – Covering the subjects of the Genesis Flood, the Ice Age, fossils and rocks in light of a Biblical Geological Framework

Expectations/homework/grading:

  1. 14 hours of lecture and discussion
