Mythical Creation Science: The Beginning

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's note: New series by Mel, who is a science teacher. This is an important one considering so many in Quiverfull homeschool their children and may not have much of a science background. Good work Mel!I'd like to start a series of blog posts on the problems with "Creation Science". Since I've been reading NLQ, I realized that some parents who home-schooled while in CP/QF then left or kids who have grown up in that system may realize that "Creation Science" seems...wrong....but don't entirely know how to explain the actual sciences involved well enough to fix their educational gaps. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Established Science Ignored?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Yesterday when I was reading through The Daily Mail's interview with Advanced Training Institute/Institute of Basic Life Principles founder Bill Gothard and preparing to post it here I was struck anew by the complete denial of scientific thought in Quiverfull. Example: In last night's posting Gothard claimed that the wrong kind of lust can damage the immune system and the endocrine system. There's no science to back this up any more than his claims that the semen of a man who is not your husband will cause cancer. No science behind it. … [Read more...]

Jason Lisle Says There is No Such Thing as an Atheist

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserImagine, for a moment, that every time someone told me they were a Christian I told them that they weren’t really a Christian because there is no such thing as a Christian. It says right here in the Book of Bruce Almighty® that everyone knows that Bruce Almighty exists and that anyone who says they are a Christian is suppressing their knowledge of the existence of Bruce. The Christian would likely say that they know they are a Christian because Jesus saved them and they believe the teaching found in the Bible. Imagine if I REFUSED to allow the Christian to authentically tell their own story.  Can you ima … [Read more...]

Teaching Our Kids Religion

bridgebuilding

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundIn a post the other day, I mentioned that homeschoolers tend to be sheltered from secular ideas – to the extent that homeschool students are often not allowed to disagree with their parents or formulate their own opinions. The post lacked clarity in several areas. I am a graduate student and have been writing extensive term papers this month. So I rushed the post. Quite frankly, if I turned in a paper as undeveloped and unclear as that post, I’d get a bad grade. … [Read more...]

The Creation-Evolution Debate and the Genres of Genesis 1 & 2-3

"Are The Fish Sinners?" - Bill Nye

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsA lot of people have been talking this week about the Bill Nye/Ken Ham Debate on Creationism vs. Evolution.  So I decided to weigh in with where I stand on this issue.When I converted to Christianity at the age of 15, I was taught that one of the things I had to embrace if I was going to follow Jesus was young-earth creationism.  The Bible "clearly" taught that God had made the earth in six 24-hour days and that the earth is 6000 to 10,000 years old. So I read several books … [Read more...]
