When Education Goes Horribly Wrong
According to studies conducted a few years ago, the average science score of U.S. students lagged behind those in 16 of 30 countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a Paris-based group that represents the world's richest countries.
Naturally, the educational establishment blamed creationism for the students' poor performance! Where's the "cause and effect" in that? Evolutionists have a firm hold on what is being taught in public schools – not creationists! Nevertheless, evolutionists are tightening their grip on the minds of our young people. And this is something that should concern every Christian parent.
As the saying goes, "garbage in, garbage out." When students are fed a constant diet of junk food, their health deteriorates. Similarly, when students are taught nothing but naturalistic (atheistic) evolution at school, many will become atheists who don't even know the difference between a fact, a theory and a hypothesis. Plus, when students are taught in science class that they are animals, they will behave that way.
Poor education can even be a matter of life and death. In an 8-31-10 story titled "Simulator training flaws tied to airline crashes," USA Today reported: "More than half of the 522 fatalities in U.S. airline accidents since 2000 have been linked to problems with simulators, devices that are used nearly universally to train the nation's airline pilots, the records show."
One example cited by the newspaper was the crash of an American Airlines plane on November 12, 2001. The pilot's aggressive use of the rudder caused the jet to break apart, killing 265 people. The National Transportation Safety Board found that American Airlines' simulator exercise had given pilots a false sense of how the rudders worked. When pilot training goes bad, lives are lost. And when evolution is taught, young people no longer have a rudder to make it safely through this life or the next.
Since students are not getting the science education they need, Creation Moments believes it is the responsibility of every Christian parent to teach biblical creation to their children at home. Fortunately, there are many excellent DVDs and books available from Creation Moments. If you'd like help in selecting resources for your children, call 1-800-422-4253 during regular office hours.
