The Flood – 2500 B.C.- 2300 B.C. (Unit Study)

 

The Flood

**We believe in “Young Earth Creationism” and teach from that viewpoint. In this section, we explore the idea that dinosaurs roamed the earth at the same time as humans. If you have an issue with these views feel free to skip over that particular material or the first few units that will discuss those views and move on down the timeline to a time period with less controversy. Thanks!
