Faith, Reason, and Earth History is a book written by Dr. Leonard Brand of Loma Linda University and Dr. Arthur Chadwick of Southwestern Adventist University. This book can be downloaded for free at: https://www.grisda.org/faith-reason-and-earth-history These short films feature Dr. Brand explaining some of the key points made in this seminal work. This series is designed to be used as a teaching aid, to enrich presentations in a class on the subject.
What attitudes will foster constructive dialogue on the controversial subject of origins? This is the introductory video to a series of short films featuring Dr. Brand explaining some of the key points…
What are the two principal explanations for origins?
Can science answer all of our questions?
What does science do best? Does science have limits?
Why do scientists sometimes misinterpret their scientific evidence?
Why is it important to think and evaluate what we read or hear?
What could prevent scientists from being objective and unbiased?
If we understand the history of science, will this help us understand scientific theories?
How have philosophers of science helped us improve our understanding of science and scientists?
Is there an understandable reason why scientists, in previous centuries, moved away from belief in a Creator?
Is there a realistic alternative to naturalism’s rejection of a Creator God?
In study of ancient history (origins, which we cannot observe), can the role of science and naturalism differ from their role in study of processes that we can observe today?
Can scientists be productive in the study of the fossil record even when they do not use the presuppositions of methodological naturalism?
What is a worldview, and why is it important which worldview we choose?
Is there evidence to support the idea that God communicated knowledge to prophets?
Is there evidence that supports the reliability of the Bible?
Is there a way that the Bible can actually improve our understanding of science?
Are microevolution and macroevolution really the same process, or are they different?
If there was no Creator, what would have to happen for life to begin? This video is part of a series of short films featuring Dr. Brand explaining some of the key points made in the book Faith Reason and…
Is there any similarity between the intelligent input of information in a written sentence, and the biological instructions for making the parts of a living cell?
Which explanation for the origin of life is based on faith: abiogenesis, or creation?
What is the Intelligent Design (ID) movement?
What are the steps in the processes of microevolution and speciation?
Why do epigenetic processes imply the existence of a Designer?
Does the Bible say that microevolution is not real?
How does macroevolution seek to explain the origin of snails, butterflies, crocodiles, lions, and humans?
Why does belief in origin of all animals by macroevolution depend on faith?
What do orphan genes and junk DNA tell us about evolution?
Do all mainstream scientists agree that Darwin’s theory has strong scientific support?
Which theory has more evidence, creation or macroevolution?
Why are two more chapters on evolution in FREH? What questions remain to be answered?
Do homologies in animal anatomy or biochemistry support evolution?
If animal anatomy is poorly designed, does this demonstrate evolution?
How should we interpret apparently vestigial organs (historical remnants)?
Can we test evolution by the hierarchical organization of life?
How are phylogenetic trees constructed, and what does this tell us about evolution?
Do we know how to answer all the questions resulting from Darwin’s theory about biogeography?
If geological history was quite catastrophic, does this make it easier, or more difficult, to explain the fossil record?
Has continued search for fossil evolutionary intermediates found lots of them, as Darwin predicted?
What is the best explanation for the universe being so finely-tuned to support life?
What geological concepts do we need to know about, to understand theories of geological history and fossils?
An expanded explanation of the concepts summarized in video FREH 14-1
Are any assumptions involved in deciding how to interpret the geological record? This video is part of a series of short films featuring Dr. Brand explaining some of the key points made in the book Faith…
If a person chooses to believe the Bible, why does a millions-of-years theory of geology matter to that belief?
Is our understanding of the character of God affected by belief in theistic evolution?
What is the standard theory of geological history?
How does a biblically faithful theory of geology differ from the standard theory?
How can a global flood theory explain why fossils are in a specific sequence in the rocks?
Since some geological evidence is against a biblical explanation, and some evidence favors it, how should we respond?
Does radiometric dating give an absolute measure of geological time?
What does continental drift tell us about geological time?
Is there geological evidence that supports a short-age theory of geology? This video is part of a series of short films featuring Dr. Brand explaining some of the key points made in the book Faith Reason…
How should we make the choice between Lyell’s geology theory and a biblical theory?
What are reasons for asking why there isn’t more sedimentary rock?
How are ancient rock formations different from what happens in the modern world?
Why does bioturbation (animal burrows) raise difficult problems for standard geological theory?
Do water currents leave evidence that is important for flood geology?
Why does much of geological landscape support a catastrophic flood?
Why is it unusual to find protein preserved in fossils that are supposedly 100 million years old?
Why can a biblical worldview give a scientific researcher an advantage in that research?
s there evidence that believing in creation and the flood does not prevent successful scientific research?
Does God value our freedom of choice, even in study of origins?
