Opportunities for Christians to do rigorous science from a young-earth perspective are increasing.
Plans to refine the creation model just took a giant leap forward. For the first time, a fully accredited Christian liberal arts college, which teaches a young-earth and worldwide flood cataclysm, is offering an undergraduate degree in geology. Cedarville University in Ohio, USA, recently announced that a bachelor of science program in geology will begin this fall.
Dr. John Whitmore, associate professor of geology and respected creation researcher, says the new program will “introduce students to both naturalistic and young-earth views, equipping them for continued study and careers in the various industries within geology.” The university promises rigorous coursework that will include extensive hands-on and field experience.
According to Whitmore, “It is extremely important to develop critical thinking skills within the minds of young scientists. We believe that using a two-model approach of earth history will be advantageous to our students over others who are only taught a one-model, naturalistic approach.”
