Key Points To Remember

  • Biblical Christianity is compatible with science; indeed, science and the Bible complement each other.
  • We humans have a responsibility to care for God's creation.
  • Plate tectonics is a remarkable and unique system that helps make life possible.
    • The time required for plate tectonics to work argues against YEC explanations.
  • The complexity of geological systems points to the God of the Bible as Creator.
    • As in astronomy, the amount of design evident in geology is a powerful argument against the random-chance explanations of naturalism.
