The museum-quality exhibit in the Biology Department offers an understanding of origins from a creationist worldview. Consider the intricacy of the cell, the relationship between the Geologic Column and the biblical flood, and the significance of beauty in nature.

Visitors Are Welcome

We invite you on a self-guided tour of the Origins Exhibit. The permanent display is located throughout the halls of the Biology Department on the second floor of Hickman Science Center. We'd love to share the exhibit, its artists, and our new exciting projects with you.

Enter in to explore the smallest unit of life—the irreducibly complex cell. Uncover some old evidence of life—layer by layer—in the Geologic Column hallway. Consider the probabilities that lead us to an infinite mind behind the intelligent design we see.
