Course Description

As Christians, intellectual virtue demands that we understand opposing worldviews and acquire the skills to critique them. As biblical creationists, it is essential to understand the major claims of the evolutionary worldview. This course will provide the student with in- depth study of the writings of Charles Darwin. Students will read and critique two of Darwin’s primary works, The Origin of Species, and The Descent of Man. The course will give special attention to an examination of Darwin’s arguments in the light of 21st century understanding of the living world. The impact of Darwin’s ideas on modern thought and culture will also be explored.
