Q: What are some of evolutionists’ tactics to indoctrinate our children?

A: Evolutionists from a prestigious organization, sanctioned by the US government, sent a horrible pro-evolution book to schools across the nation. It was an attempt to influence teachers and school boards to teach only evolution in science classes.

On page 18, for instance, teachers are shown pictures of how whales supposedly evolved. One picture is of a creature called “Ambulocetus.” This animal looks like a weird transitional form, being part land animal and part sea creature.

But the teachers aren’t told that this picture is based on a reconstruction of an animal from less than 50% of the skeleton. It had vital parts missing — parts that would tell us what it really was. Actually, the toes on the hind foot of this animal ended in a hoof — it was some sort of land animal anyway!

This certainly tells you the sorry state of evolutionary ideas — evolutionists have to resort to such storytelling, and hiding of the real evidence, to sell their religion! It seems they’ll stop at nothing to oppose the Bible. We need to get the truth out to children!

Answers in Genesis is planning a “Creation Sunday” some time in the future to worship and praise the Creator God of the Bible! We will provide more details once they are available.

The next session of our online education courses begins soon and registration is now open. Foundations in Creation Apologetics is a 12-week course designed to equip you to defend your faith in an evolution-dominated world that is increasingly hostile to Christianity. Each weekly lesson is designed so that you can work at your own pace, so it is ideal for both students and working people. The lessons focus on helping you understand the issues involved and how to use the information you learn to share your faith with others. As a student, you will be involved in reading articles, watching videos, discussing ideas with classmates and instructors, and applying what you have learned in the assessments.
