Those Dropping Science Scores

Psalm 14:1
"The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."

We've been hearing a lot about how science scores are dropping among American high school students. Many creationists believe that the dogmatic teaching of evolution is one important reason why science scores are dropping.

Those Dropping Science ScoresToday, evolution creeps into many of the subjects taught in America's high schools. Both biology and history classes have units populated with ape-like creatures supposedly on their way to becoming human beings. Students are taught how religion evolved when ancient man invented God. Classes on ecology and natural history dwell on supposed evolutionary ages and developments.

Consider these claims from the viewpoint of a student. Evolution claims that non-living matter once formed the first living creature all by itself. Students are taught that a small rodent turned into a horse. They are told in all seriousness about how fish once started walking around on land, and so grew lungs. Often they are not allowed to question these outrageous claims. From the students' viewpoint, science departs from reality and common sense. It becomes confusing, and the student's choice is either to memorize the stuff, pass the examination and have done with it or drop out.

When high school students hear a critical analysis of evolution and are shown the evidence supporting creation, they quickly become interested. They never realized that science could make sense or that true science does not call their belief in God into question.

Prayer: 
Dear Father in heaven, I ask You to support all our Christian young people as they are educated. Prosper all efforts to give them a sound education that glorifies You, and help them be examples to the other students. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
