- Flood geology vs. Uniformitarianism
- The “geologic column” and geologic time
- Fossil evidence
- Radiometric dating techniques
- Grand Canyon formation
- Mount Saint Helens evidences
- Plate tectonics
- Ice Age
- Discussion forums where instructors and students can interact
- Online quizzes with immediate feedback
- Online videos with integrated study guides
- Live chats with the instructors
- Independent projects that apply what you have learned
- Reading assignments that will engage and equip you
Upon completing the course, students will be able to:
- Relate the origin of the concept of millions years as a Christian compromise position.
- State the basic concepts behind radiometric dating methods.
- Describe major differences between Catastrophism and Uniformitarianism.
- Describe the layers of the geologic column and the fossils they contain as a result of the original Creation events and the Flood.
- Use specific examples of geologic anomalies to discredit Uniformitarianism.
- Describe how plate tectonics and the Flood have played an important role in shaping the earth.
- A certificate of completion will be awarded to those finishing the course with a final score of 75% or higher. In addition, those who pass the course can receive 2 ACSI-accredited Continuing Education Units (CEUs): 1 in biblical studies and 1 in educational studies.
- Students should expect to spend 6–8 hours per week working on the assignments and participating in discussion forums. Complete the coursework at your own pace within each week-long block. More time may be required on weeks that include an independent project.
- The advanced courses are open for enrollment but build on information from the APO 101/111 Foundations in Creation Apologetics course. Students are expected to have a firm grasp on presuppositional apologetics to be successful in any advanced course.
