Clash of Ideas, Episode 1
This episode unfolds at the foothills of the Italian Alps, between Venice and Padova. It was here that Galileo Galilei broke the Aristotelian distinction between perfect heavenly bodies and imperfect Earth. By suggesting that the surface of the moon was similar to the varied topography seen on Earth, Galileo paved the way for the science of planetary geology. This step, often portrayed as a clash between science and religion, actually helped to develop a better understanding of creation and of the wisdom and power of God that the universe reveals.

Evidence of the Recent Creation
Living things provide abundant evidence of their relatively recent creation. Claims that life, and death, are billions of years old exploit the fact that we can’t do time travel to see if they are true. All we can do is consider the record of the past we have in God’s Word and in His creation. Join us as we examine just a little of the clear evidence that life on Earth is thousands rather than millions of years old.
