About the Course

Geology is a wonderful subject to study, but sadly, many don't truly enjoy the adventure because they see it as something that will undermine their faith. But it doesn't have to be that way! In this short video, you will learn 13 terms that will help you to navigate the world of geology. Investigating the meaning of words like science, history, uniformitarianism, the rock cycle, orogeny, and more, Patrick will help you to understand why it is crucial to know how these words relate to the study of geology, since so much of geology is not pure science. It is important to know and understand the difference so that you can know if what you are learning is science or interpretation. This study will also help to bolster your trust in the Bible.

There is a short quiz on completion of this short class. Intended for grades 5 and up. After purchasing the lessons, they are available to you for the lifetime of the product.

Watch this short video to meet your teacher, Patrick Nurre, and get a brief overview of what you will be learning.
