A community college class that openly challenges and refutes evolution is being presented at a secular two-year community college in the western half of the United States. Conducted by an avid Answers in Genesis supporter, the class has now completed its second consecutive term.
The instructor, who is also the developer of this non-credit course (and who prefers to remain anonymous), testifies that this unique concept shows great potential to take the creation/evolution debate and creation evangelism to a larger audience of the mainstream public, those who would not typically come to an AiG seminar sponsored by a Christian organization.
This AiG supporter believes that there are many curious students across the US who are not content with receiving evolution teaching, and who would respond to the offering of a noncredit class on creation/evolution. Because of the positive response this instructor has received thus far, he wanted AiG to share some of the basic strategies he has employed in the hope of encouraging others to (carefully) try their own similar ventures around the United States:
What has the instructor seen in his class thus far? One student who first claimed that she “worships the Earth” later commented that: “I really think it’s a good course. It forces you to think and reevaluate your views.” This person has come to the point where she’s now searching the Scriptures and learning more about the Savior! Even some atheists have attended some of the sessions, so some seeds have been planted. For lay Christians, the comments usually are on the order of: “We’re finding this very interesting and we’re learning a lot.” They are clearly strengthened in their faith and in their capacity to think for themselves.
The instructor shared with AiG that “I want to thank you with all my heart for this opportunity to share the news of this remarkable initiative in which I’m involved. I consider AiG the preeminent mouthpiece for ‘creation evangelism.’ May God bless AiG as it reaches out in so many ways-and so extensively-to the average layperson.”

“Now that I have updated, revised, and expanded The Lie, I believe it’s an even more powerful, eyeopening book for the church—an essential resource to help all of us to understand the great delusion that permeates our world! The message of The Lie IS the message of AiG and why we even exist! It IS the message God has laid on our hearts to bring before the church! It IS a vital message for our time.”
– Ken Ham, president and founder of AiG–U.S.
