Q: Should we teach evolution to our children?

A: Absolutely!

Quotable quote:

‘They [most Americans] believe that the Earth is billions of years old and that life evolved gradually from simple to complex forms. But they also believe that evolution was a means by which God carried out a plan to create humans. For tactical reasons, Darwinists don't rush to tell all these people that they are missing the point, but all in good time. Let people first learn that evolution is a fact. They can be told later what evolution means.’

—Phillip E. Johnson (Professor of Law, University of California at Berkeley), ’Unbelievers unwelcome in the science lab,’Los Angeles Times, 3 November 1990.

Sadly, some Christian parents say that their children were only going to learn about creation and hear nothing about evolution. But this is not a good idea!

Our children should know more about evolution than most evolutionists. We’ve nothing to be worried about if we teach our children the truth about evolution. In fact, it’s imperative that they learn it.

Children need to be taught that evolution has no basis in science, that there are no facts that support it, and that it’s actually an evil philosophy. In fact, the men who popularized evolution wanted to stop people from believing the God of creation. The more our children know about evolution, the more they’ll see that it has no basis in truth whatsoever!

We must obey the Scriptures and teach our children to distinguish good from evil, as the book of Hebrews tells us. And to do this, we must train them in the truth of creation and teach them the fallacy of evolution.

For Educators | For Students


Education Question:

Have you ever wondered where the people went as they dispersed from Babel? In this intriguing article, the authors show how secular history gives much evidence that the survivors of Noah’s Flood were real historical figures whose names were indelibly carved on much of the ancient world.

Textbook of the Month:

Our featured textbook of this month is The Bible Comes Alive. Dr Clifford Wilson, a renowned Australian archaeologist and educator, has gathered photographs from his own collection on Middle Eastern archaeology. Set up to follow the order of the books of the Bible, these photos and texts run from creation to Revelation! Included are many photographs of artifacts and sites from the Bible!

Praise and Prayer | Upcoming AiG Events

Praise and Prayer

Please pray over the following items during the next two weeks …

  • Next week we will be posting new museum-related photos at www.CreationMuseum.org so that you can follow the exciting progress of the construction of the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky.

  • AiG intends to move its four different operations to this site in September (we will share more details about this exciting development in a special letter that supporters will receive in mid-May)—please pray that there will be effective planning now so that when AiG moves into the new facility, its outreaches will not be disrupted. Pray that the offices will be ready for occupancy by September.

  • AiG, in cooperation with Gospel Literature Services, is translating AiG’s The 4 Big Questions booklet into many new languages, in preparation for the Greek Olympics in August. Pray that these new booklets will be translated, printed and shipped in time for distribution throughout Athens and beyond.

  • Praise God, Dr Sarfati’s new book Refuting Compromise is seeing a wide distribution, and many pastors in particular are reading it. Please pray with us that many more churches and Christian leaders will see the danger of compromising with the Bible’s first book. (By the way, Dr Sarfati and Ken Ham will be conducting a live webcast on Tuesday, 27 April, from 9–10:30 pm eastern daylight time, on this ‘compromise’ topic—just go to our homepage, www.AnswersInGenesis.org, for easy instructions on how to listen to Ken and Dr Sarfati live on your computer.)
