Everyone has a worldview. In this session we will discuss how your worldview results in your understanding of different evidences. When discussing origins, your worldview determines your starting point. For example, if you find a fossilized dinosaur bone, you can come up with two conclusions. If you believe in the theory of Evolution, then you will conclude that the dinosaur died out about 65 million years ago, and after it died the bones were covered up with sediment and hardened. If you believe in the Bible and a literal Creation, then you will conclude that the dinosaur was buried by sediments during Noah’s Flood about 4400 years ago. Here is another example: among all living organisms there are many similarities both in regards to the physical and genetic features of each organism. You will use your worldview to conclude that either all living things have a common ancestor or all living things have a common Designer.
