Course Title: Origins Unveiled: Creation vs. Evolution I

Course Description:

Origins Unveiled provides students with a comprehensive exploration of the Creation vs. Evolution debate, examining the intriguing intersections of fossils, genealogy, biochemistry, and biology. Through an in-depth analysis of design versus evolution, chromosomes, prehistoric man, and the potential life-altering implications of one’s stance on evolution, this course navigates the intricate landscape where science, theology, and personal beliefs converge.

Module 1: Fossils and Genealogy

Investigate the fossil record and its significance in shaping our understanding of the history of life on Earth.
Explore the principles of genealogy, tracing evolutionary relationships and common ancestry.
Analyze the implications of fossil and genealogical evidence for both creationist and evolutionary perspectives.

Module 2: Biochemistry and Biology

Examine the biochemical foundations of life and the intricate molecular processes that drive evolution.
Explore biological mechanisms such as natural selection, adaptation, and genetic variation.
Discuss the compatibility of biochemical and biological evidence with creationist viewpoints.

Module 3: Design versus Evolution

Engage in critical discussions on the concept of design in the natural world and its role in shaping living organisms.
Explore the arguments for and against intelligent design, considering both scientific and philosophical perspectives.
Analyze the implications of design-based reasoning for the ongoing dialogue between creationism and evolution.

Module 4: Chromosomes and Prehistoric Man

Investigate the role of chromosomes in heredity and evolution, exploring genetic evidence for common ancestry.
Examine the fossil evidence related to prehistoric human ancestors and their place in the evolutionary timeline.
Discuss the challenges and opportunities in reconciling chromosomal and anthropological evidence with creationist viewpoints.

Module 5: Decision-Making and Personal Implications

Reflect on how one’s perspective on evolution influences personal beliefs, values, and decision-making.
Explore the societal and ethical implications of differing views on evolution.
Consider how an individual’s stance on creation or evolution may impact their worldview, career choices, and interactions with others.
