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.
The cell is the smallest unit of life that is classified as a living thing. All organisms are made of at least one cell and come from preexisting cells. Some organisms, such as most bacteria, consist of a single cell. Humans have about 100 trillion cells.
The layers of the Geologic Column are ordered by age—oldest to youngest. The bottom layer is older than the next layer up. The big question—and one of the most significant areas of disagreement among scientists—is How much older?
Intelligent design is a scientific theory which holds that certain features of the universe and living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, and are not the result of an undirected, chance-based process. We believe there is an infinite mind behind the design.
Can you be intellectually honest and still believe the Bible?
The Origins Exhibit considers an interpretation of the geologic column—the fossilized layers of Earth's past—that is compatible with a creationist worldview.
Many Christians wonder what to believe about fossils because the biblical account of creation is in conflict with science's widely accepted theory that fossils are millions of years old (and provide foundational evidence for evolution).
What is a Christian to think? The fossils are real. Both sides of the debate are looking at the same scientific data. Is the evidence reconcilable with the Bible?
