How to Use This Course
Creation Apologetics is a special series of videos from Creation Ministries International that draws on biology, chemistry, nuclear physics, astronomy, genetics, geology, history, and more to provide a defensible understanding of a belief in Biblical Creation. Most of these videos are designed for older middle school students and high school students. Some advanced material is also included. This class is a wonderful class to take as a family, as it is sure to spark many valuable discussions.
- Creation Not Confusion: Pinpointing the Problem and Using the Tools of Truth: In these fast-paced and informative presentations, Gary Bates demonstrates with stunning clarity how beliefs about where we came from determine our overall worldview, our behavior, and where we think we go when we die—and why the church should embrace this issue if it is to be the force it once was when engaging the culture.
- Why Does a Good God Allow Bad Things? The Biblical Response to Death and Suffering: One of the most asked questions is why a loving God allows death and suffering. The heart of the Creator is revealed as Gary Bates persuasively unfolds the often overlooked issue in today’s evolution-creation culture wars—the vital “big picture” of the Gospel.
- The High Tech Cell—The Complexity of the Genome Defies Evolution: The human genome is anything but simple. In fact, it is a super-complex computer operating system that far exceeds anything created by humans to date. New revelations about how it works have surprised us, and the complexity of the code is nothing short of astounding. The genome, perhaps more than anything else, defies naturalistic evolutionary theory.
- The Christian Roots of Science—How Modern Science Flourished Under a Christian Worldview: Learn how the Christian worldview provided the assumptions required for comprehending how science worked at all. See also why a straightforward understanding of our world from the Biblical context motivated further great advances. Also learn the real truth about Galileo and the myth of flat-earth belief.
- Radioactive Dating & A Young Earth—How Nuclear Physics Supports the Bible’s Timeframe: Is radiometric dating really proof that the earth is billions of years old as evolutionists claim? What about the evidence from radioactive decay that the earth is actually only about 6,000 years old—just as the chronologies in the Bible indicate?
- Understanding the Law of Decay—Clearing Up Misconceptions About the Entropy Argument: Christians using entropy or the second law of Thermodynamics to deny biological evolution are often unwittingly misrepresenting the law, while missing out on ways this concept (often misunderstood by evolutionists, too) can be powerfully utilized. Get the real facts in this insightful presentation.
- How the Earth Was Shaped—The Receding Waters of the Flood Carved the World We See Today: The surface of the earth presents many puzzles for uniformitarian scientists but can be explained by catastrophic runoff late in the Flood. Great vertical tectonics and massive erosion occurred at this time. Planation surfaces were cut into solid rock, and very hard rocks were transported many hundreds of miles.
- Biblical Biology 101—Is Darwinian Evolution Good Science? It is not Christians who have problems with biology but evolutionists! In this easy-to-understand, well-illustrated talk, Dominic Statham shows how many facts about the natural world fit the Bible’s account of Creation far better than they fit the theory of evolution.
- The Distant Starlight Dilemma? Light Years Are Not a Problem for a Recent Creation: If galaxies are billions of light-years away from us and a light-year is the current time that light travels in one year, then how are we able to see light from these galaxies if the earth and universe are only about 6,000 years old as is indicated by the chronologies in the Bible? Get the answer!
- How Darwin Got It Wrong—Seven Major Points: Darwinism is the ruling paradigm of the scientific community. Yet, hear a world-renowned scientist explain how Darwin was limited in his understanding of today’s modern scientific discoveries and how this led to numerous mistakes on his part. But the mistakes did not stop just at science.
- Are Miracles Scientific? Can Observational Science Verify When Miracles Occur? Learn how to think Biblically and logically about miracles. Many attacks on miracles misunderstand what science can and can’t do, or even resort to arguing in circles. Why should we trust Biblical miracle accounts? This presentation also refutes chronological snobbery and pagan copycat ideas.
- A Brief but True History of Time—Creation to the Cross: In tracing the chronological timeline of Biblical history from creation to the cross, Dr. Harwood reveals the exciting implications of taking Genesis as true history and shows how the scientific evidence is actually consistent with it. The big picture of the gospel message presented is “good news” indeed!
- Goo 2 U, Via the Zoo—Evolved or Designed? Dave and Dan set out to open up the big questions to a searching generation of youth. Challenging, fun, and culturally relevant, this video offers a way out of the confusion for youth searching for answers that satisfy both the mind and the heart.
- Mitochondrial Eve and the 3 “Daughters” of Noah: The Bible records three historical “main events” that would have left an indelible mark on our genetic makeup: Creation, the Flood, and the Tower of Babel. Exciting research in modern genetics actually underlines the reality of these events, if you expect to find the evidence and go looking for it (but you have to know where to look!).
- The Mystery of Our Declining Genes—Startling Data from Recent Creation in our DNA: One of the world’s foremost experts on genetics traces the history of human genetic decline due to mutations in our DNA. The evidence is startling to those who don’t believe in the Genesis account of Creation because it refutes conventional dates for alleged human evolution. This is powerful evidence for the Bible’s timescale for human history.
- Six Days . . . Really? Refuting Compromise from the Scriptures: A six-day, young earth understanding of Genesis is the only one that comes from the text itself, which is why the rest of Scripture interprets it that way. Long-age views are a modern aberration that comes from imposing outside ideas of uniformitarian “science” upon the text. See how compromising views render the Bible meaningless to a dying world.
- The Alternative . . . Creation’s Competitive Edge: Do you want to reach your culture with the gospel? Then you’d better be prepared to give them an ALTERNATIVE! There are sound credible answers to evolution, the most common excuse used to reject the Bible today, but most people haven’t heard them yet. The Biblical worldview, including a six-day creation event only 6,000 years ago, is a strong defendable scientific alternative! Get equipped and defend your faith against some of the most pressing excuses for rejecting Christianity in this informative, illustrated presentation.
- From Atheist to Creationist—A Former Youth Pastor Speaks Out: Many Christians face a devastating phenomenon when their kids jettison their faith and walk out of the church, despite years of exposure to a Christian culture. Why? The good news is the answers are not difficult if one has the courage to recognize the problem. Drawing insight as a former atheist, Calvin delivers an eye opening message of encouragement, giving clear directions on overcoming one of the biggest barriers to faith in Christ.
- Chemicals to Living Cell—Fantasy or Science? See how “goo-to-you” evolution is refuted right at the start! In this fascinating, illustrated lecture, a PhD chemist shows how the laws of real chemistry prevent non-living chemicals from arranging themselves into living cells. Self-reproducing cells have far more complexity than Darwin imagined.
