How to Use This Course
This self-paced apologetics class is designed to help middle school and high school students understand how to defend their faith and the scientific case that is in harmony with God’s Word. Each unit can stand alone and can be taken in any order.
What is the historical, Biblical, and scientific case for the young earth? Could life arise by itself?
To answer these questions, this course incorporates humor, interesting videos, and hands-on activities. It was filmed inside a live classroom, so students will feel like they’re actually there with the other students. It is designed for 12- to 18-year-olds, though many parents have enjoyed it as well. It is a perfect tool for families who want to know how to defend their faith and understand the scientific case that’s in harmony with God’s Word. Each unit can stand alone and can be taken in any order.
This course includes several optional hands-on activities, links for more reading, homework assignments, and quizzes to grade the student.
The class is taught by Pat Roy and has been reviewed by Dr. Russell Humphreys, PhD in Physics and expert on the age of the Earth, and Dr. Georgia Purdom, PhD in Molecular Genetics and the molecular geneticist for Answers in Genesis.
