Josh, you have a lot of good and important content in there. E.g.
--Distinguishing Materialist worldviews from scientific claims,
--Thinking carefully how one moves from one view to another,
--Talking about different ways we can know something,
--Fundamental harmony between scripture and physical reality, but
possible conflict at level of human interpretation of each,
--You summarize at least 3 views Christians can hold: YEC, old earth
progressive creation, theistic evolution. (Some of us prefer the term
"evolutionary creationist" for the last view.)
All of that's good stuff.
--On your slide with the eye, don't label the two views "creationist" and
"evolutionist." Label the first view "anti-evolutionist" or something
like that. After all, we can believe both that the complex eye
evolved AND that God created it.
--You may want to think about how you'll answer questions of hermeneutics.
My wife and I have given talks to Christian groups on this and related
topics. You might find some resources that are useful to you at:
