Only the creationist perspective can adequately account for the design in nature, since it postulates a Designer, a law-giver, and an orderly cause, while the materialist can only posit chance. The Christian worldview holds that the creationist model as described in scripture better fits the facts of science than the evolutionary model. by Matt Slick. Christianity does not devalue the natural world. If anything, Christianity teaches that the world we live in is a gift from God and is to be managed by us for His glory (Deut. ) and for the benefit of others (Lev. ).

“The foundation of irreligious criticism is: Man makes religion, religion does not make man. Religion is, indeed, the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet won through to himself, or has already lost himself again. Give your students a thoroughly Christian, Biblical introduction to the creation of the world. Six units are divided between two parts: the first presents an overview of the essentials of creationism, while the second explores related topics such as the age of the earth, the evolution model, and intelligent design.
