In Stock

Tuition for the CERTIFICATE section of the "Advanced Seminar on the Origins of Life" course.


Did life evolve from an ancient primordial soup? What does the evidence say?

This 15-week graduate seminar taught by Dr. Fuz Rana explores the integration of the biblical account for the origin of life with the latest scientific research. The most prominent biblical and scientific models for the origin of life will be surveyed, including old-earth creationism, theistic evolutionism, and secular evolutionism.

Although many sides of the origins of life issue will be studied, the professor holds to an old-earth-creation position and does not believe that the scientific record supports biological descent from a last universal common ancestor.
