addition to the famous Scopes trial, there have been significant legal
rulings that creationism is not science and cannot be taught as such. This is
largely the result of the arbitrary definition that science must assume
naturalism. Because of these rulings, the current approach is to teach people
the truth of creation in whatever way possible (creation seminars, books,
videos, the Internet, Christian home schooling) outside of formal secular
unfortunate that there is a serious division in the creationist camp between
those who believe the earth is young (about 10,000 years) and those who hold
to the standard view of about 4.5 billion years. Just as diverse groups have
come together to fight causes such as abortion, the fight against promotion
of naturalistic evolution as science far outweighs the secondary issue of how
long God took to create. Creationism can work with either a young or an old
earth (without implying evolution), but evolution MUST have an old earth.
those who WANT to teach science from a creationist perspective, there is a
shortage of curriculum materials, and many times educators must settle for
the textbook having the least emphasis on evolution.
statement made by evolutionists concerning creation science is “where is your
science”? The reality is that creation research is hampered by a lack of
funding for world-class facilities and support personnel. The ICR Graduate
School is the leading creationist institution. The Creation Research Society
also has a small laboratory.
