The Bible & Science
How can you consider yourself a thinking person and believe the Bible is true? This question, and others like it, have haunted students for decades. The other side of that question is equally fear-inducing: can a scientist be a Christian?
Students in this class will explore tough issues such as these head-on, in community together, through collaborative learning and discussion. Topics such as creation/evolution, worldwide flood, archaeology, miracles, and much more will be discussed in a way that provides all sides of each argument. This class will offer more than just facts and theories. Students will also learn to form a solid foundation for their world view and how to articulate it.
While taught from a Christian point of view, this class is a safe environment for students to face tough questions, debate ideas, and form a basis for their beliefs without being indoctrinated toward one belief system. Feel free to email the teacher with any questions!
This course is part of our Bridge Builder series. The goal for this series is simple: to help students cultivate the capacity to show compassion, grow in empathy, share love with all people, and ultimately collaborate with others to provide solutions to problems in an increasingly complex world. While this is not the case in most of our classes, the courses in this series require live attendance with video and audio capability to aid in discussion.
