Creation Education Resources for the entire family will be available here because I believe that
ORIGINS SCIENCE IS A FOUNDATIONAL ISSUE FOR CHRISTIANS
I have studied the subject of origins science since 1995. I studied at the Institute for Creation Research (Masters Science Biology), and have read tons of books on the subject.
According to Ken Ham of “Answers in Genesis,” we have an Epidemic on our hands. An enormous percentage of kids raised in the church are leaving once they hit college:
“A majority of twenty-somethings—61% of today’s young adults—had been churched at one point during their teen years but they are now spiritually disengaged (i.e., not actively attending church, reading the Bible, or praying).”
Why is this?
The most important reason is that kids’ questions are not sufficiently answered regarding the evolution/creation controversy. Our kids are bombarded in the media, in the public schools, and pretty much everywhere else with the evolution message. But they’re not getting their questions answered. This is because most parents aren’t educated enough on the subject origins science. Thus, kids don’t have answers to their kids’ honest questions.
And to make matters worse, the majority of churches aren’t addressing the issue AT ALL.
Since 1995, when I first discovered “The Institute for Creation Research (ICR),” I’ve realized the amazing evidence that supports the creation account as told in the bible. And I’ve had a burning passion to share my knowledge with others. But I have found that the majority of Christians just aren’t interested.
Talk about frustrating!
Based on what I’ve seen, homeschooling moms and dads are exceptions to the rule. We ARE interested and we ARE doing something about it.
We are giving our kids the chance to learn both sides. We are teaching our kids how to critically evaluate the evidence and decide for themselves what to believe.
Instead of being told what to think–or being shamed into believing that “bible thumpers are just ignorant, uneducated fools,” our kids are learning the facts and how to evaluate those facts for themselves.
I don’t know about you, but no matter how much I think I know about the evidence for creation, I still find there is tons more out there. We all have our own unique experiences to add to the total.
I want to share with you what I’ve learned in order further equip you to prepare your children for the opposing ideas they will be faced with in the adult world.
