Creation Day 1
Discusses the properties of light that contribute to make our planet habitable
Creation Detectives: The Flooded Desert
A comic book narrating an adventurous journey of discovery based on real research.
Age of the Earth
How old is the Earth? What is the basis of radiometric dating? What is the meaning of “half-life?” How can creationists explain radiometric dates of many millions of years? What unsolved questions about the age of the Earth are of greatest interest?
Creation Day 2
What are the properties of the earth's atmosphere that make it just right to sustain life?
Creation Day 3
Explains how the composition of the crust, properties of water, and metabolism of plants contribute to support life on earth
Where did the water come from for the flood, and where did it go? How could the waters of the flood cover Mt. Everest? How could the Earth be destroyed by 40 days and 40 nights of rain? Was the flood truly worldwide? What about proposals that the biblical Flood story refers to a local flood somewhere in the Middle East? What unsolved questions about the Flood are of greatest interest?
Was there an Ice Age? When was the Ice Age? Why doesn't the Bible say anything about the Ice Age? What caused the Ice Age? How long did the Ice Age last? How did the Ice Age affect the plants and animals? What about other Ice Ages in the geologic column? What are the most significant unsolved questions regarding Ice Ages?

Origin of Life
Have scientists created life? What is the meaning of the famous “Miller-Urey Experiment,” which produced amino acids from a simulated primordial atmosphere? Could life begin by chance in a "primordial soup"? Evaluate the theory that life began on mineral or clay surfaces in the ocean, perhaps around hydrothermal vents. How have developments in chaos theory and emergent properties affected our understanding of the origin of life problem? Has life been found on Mars?

Relation of the Sun and the Moon to the Earth and some biological cycles
Have the continents truly moved apart? When did the continents move apart? Does mention of the division of the earth in Genesis 10:25 refer to plate tectonics? Does Pangaea represent the pre-Flood world? How could the continents move fast enough to rearrange the whole surface of the Earth during the year of the Flood? What unsolved questions about plate tectonics are of greatest interest?
ByDesign Biology: The Scientific Study of Life

What is the basis of carbon-14 dating? What materials can be dated by carbon-14? How accurate are carbon-14 dates? What are the assumptions used in determining carbon-14 dates? How would carbon-14 dating be affected by a global flood? What unsolved problems about carbon-14 dating are of greatest interest?
Compact Time: A Short History of Life on Earth
John C. Walton. 2021. Troubador Publishing Ltd. ISBN-13: 978-1800461246
What are the "Genesis kinds?" How do we account for predators, parasites and poisonous creatures if animals originally ate plants? Aren't there limits to how much species can change? What is the taxonomic unit that best represents the originally created kinds? Can species change rapidly enough to account for present biodiversity in a relatively short time? How do we explain the genetic and molecular similarities of humans and chimpanzees? What unsolved problems about change in species are of greatest interest?
