Origins: History of American Creationism (Part 1)

February 10, 2010

Today’s class is the first of three dealing with the history of American creationism in the 20th Century. This first episode deals with how modern Young Earth Creationism arose out of fundamentalist concerns over modernism. After briefly presenting that history, we look at some of the claims of groups such as the ICR and AiG. A more substantive presentation of YEC claims will be provided by a viewing of the ICR video A Walk Through Earth History (1998) in two weeks along with critical examination of claims in the second half of the semester.
