Section 1: They're Both Religions
1 page

Many believe that evolution is a part of science studies and creation is a part of the religious studies. But examining the evidence proves that both creation and evolution represent paramount religious worldviews! Dig into the evidence with Eric, removing all the scientific hyperbole to reveal the truth. If you are a creationist, you believe in the beginning—God! If you are an evolutionist, you believe in the beginning—dirt!

Section 2: How Old is It?
1 page

According to the dates given in the Bible, the earth is about 6,000 years old. According to evolutionists, the earth is billions of years old. Does this conflict affect the lost and the faith of believers? Delve into the conflict as Session Two presents evidences that point conclusively to a young earth. The testimony of Scripture tells us the earth is young — and true science agrees!

Section 3: It Was Good

If there really is a Creator God, why do we see suffering? In Session Three we come face to face with this question and answer it with the biblical account of Adam’s Fall and Noah’s Flood. Join Eric to study the awe and majesty of God’s creation, the consequences sin brought upon it, and who must really take the rap for suffering in the world today.

Section 4: Dinosaurs with Man
1 page

We are indoctrinated at a young and impressionable age with the idea that dinosaurs lived millions and millions of years ago. In Session Four, Eric covers historical, scientific, and biblical evidence that dinosaurs existed with man in the Garden of Eden; were on the ark with Noah; and how God’s judgment with a global flood changed life on planet earth for everyone — including the dinosaurs!

Section 5: Fact vs Faith
1 page

Science textbooks clearly impact society. In Session Five, Eric drills down on evolutionary theories supported in the textbooks with evolutionary faith masquerading as scientific fact. He examines such scientific data as where the geologic column exists, the change mutations bring on life, and what influence the theory of natural selection makes on a society as it robs humanity of its belief in God’s Word as the ultimate authority. Arm yourself to critically sort through the jargon and assumption of the faith-based evolution agenda and to distinguish fact from faith in the latest science curricula.

Section 6: Truth

Either there is a God or there isn't — and both possibilities are frightening. In Session Six, discover how one's worldview affects his perception of truth. Science cannot give us absolute truth; only educated guesses based on circumstantial evidence without certainty of conclusions. Absolute truth can only be known through a proper understanding of God's Word, and in the end, this always brings God glory!
