A Bold, Biblical Approach to Geology

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Rock formationsAt Cedarville, we approach the study of geology differently from most universities – even ones that are identified as "Christian." As with every program we offer, our geology program boldly acknowledges the Bible as the ultimate framework for research and study, without sacrificing academic excellence. We are unashamed to adhere to a literal, six-day account of creation and recognize God as the Creator of all life. We are honored to be an invited exhibitor at Answers in Genesis’ annual college expo.

Regularly, Dr. John Whitmore, Professor of Geology, leads a group of students on a trip to the Grand Canyon, where they examine geological evidence that supports the biblical account of Creation and Noah's Flood. Read today's post to watch a video to get a taste of this incredible trip.

This bold, biblically integrated education is exactly what your student will experience at Cedarville University in every course, in every major. We invite you to visit campus and see for yourself!
