ISC 1502 Darwinism and Intelligent Design (course is now full)

3 Credit Hours

This course introduces students to the scientific debate over creation, evolution, and intelligent design in the modern era. With a focus on Darwinism’s intensifying paradigm crisis since the 1980s, we will survey (a) basic principles of lab science and historical science, (b) the range of arguments and lines of evidence that are set forth to defend either Darwinism or Intelligent Design, and (c) key discoveries from astronomy, physics, and chemistry that lead to the inference of a designed universe. The relationship of science and Christian Theology will be explored on selected topics in the origins debate.

“Darwinism and Intelligent Design” meets Tuesdays/Thursdays, 1:00-2:15 pm (Jan 17-May 4)

*THEO 4331 Systematic Theology 4 is a theology survey course. Drop/Add ends Jan. 24th

We study religions which are outside the orbit of “Mere Christianity,” such as Scientology, Mormonism and Jehovah’s Witnesses. We will compare Protestant and Roman Catholic perspectives on biblical teachings. Also this course addresses what the Bible says about the church—both local and universal—and we explore every aspect of the Second Coming of Christ (i.e. the doctrine of eschatology or “last things”).

“Systematic Theology 4” Tuesdays/Thursdays, from 2:25 to 3:40 pm (Jan 17-May 4).
