Do More Christian Homeschoolers Want Evolution in Textbooks?

The Atlantic offers an interesting look at the growing number of evangelical parents who homeschool their children but want their textbooks to teach evolution instead of young earth creationism (YEC).

Being one of many factors that have swelled the ranks of Christian homeschoolers, YEC certainly has and retains a strong foothold among existing religious curriculum. But the magazine finds a few families and one Reformed publisher to serve as counter-examples (albeit anecdotal):

The rising number of homeschool families striving to reconcile belief in God with today's scientific consensus has attracted the attention of at least one publisher -- Christian Schools International in Grand Rapids, Michigan. "Most science textbooks that attempt to present the content from a Christian perspective also attempt to discredit the theory of evolution," says Ken Bergwerff, a science curriculum specialist at ...

One thing no apologists (to my knowledge) have addressed is how computer models can prove anything when floating-point math has inherent representation & computational error. Dr. William Kahan of UC Berkeley is probably the world's leading authority on this subject; the IEEE 754 std. he instigated back in '85 is used by most computers on the planet, but this only mitigates the problem (as he admits) & does not eliminate it.

If you can't bound numerical errors, then how can you account for discrepancies between theory & measurements even when samples have no error (which is impossible)?

You might appreciate the following example of how even a simple geometric formula can degenerate badly given certain inputs:
Needle Triangle
He has also exposed weaknesses in popular software like Excel & Matlab.

They need to stop monkeying with the home school curriculum.
If formal logic is taught, & children are encouraged to practice & use it (risking possible embarrassment to instructors & preachers), then evolution is no more dangerous than any other mythology, since it is based on empiricsm, a flawed basis of knowledge. Even micro-evolution. being empirical also, cannot withstand such scrutiny.

The relevant fallacies of science (admitted by no less than atheist Bertrand Russell) are Induction & Affirming the Consequent. These are utterly devastating to science claims.

The only value to science is development of models of how nature works, which makes possible various inventions. But models are NEVER true.

Just one example: The NASA atmosphere model. It is an horrible hash of interpolated measured data & improvised equations, running on computers which do not even comply with fundamental rules of analytic arithmetic.

jamesc, I have no argument with your comment, except to add, many Christian children can only afford public higher education. They may come into a situation, they have to know about the religion of Evolution, (hmm, I think I did point that out? Evolution Is Religion--Not Science ).

Evolution...instead of young Earth creation? Oh boy. Micro evolution...yes. Macro...not a chance. Even many ardent evolutionists are searching for other alternitives, saying that the theory just doesn't stand up against scrutiny. Unfortunately, they will stick like glue to anything that doesn't include God in the mix. For example, some evolutionists have crossed over into the belief that aliens planted us here long ago. Problem is, that age old question: so where did the aliens come from?
God is the one thing that makes sense yet they will do all they can to believe and attempt to prove otherwise.
Willfully ignorant...

There are many opportunities to teach about evolution (or millions of years) because kids are innundated with it in the media (e.g. National Geographic, Ice Age movies). Even a trip to the San Diego Zoo or Sea World is an (unwanted) lesson in evolution. No need to get it in curriculum (unless being shown in contrast and erroneous to the Biblical view) We have lots of videos from Answers In Genesis so our kids can spot this stuff a mile a way. I agree with AIG. It is a Biblical Authority issue. Can't trust Genesis 1?---then you can't trust the Gospels.

I would have no problem with homeschoolers' materials discrediting Evolution, Evolution Is Religion--Not Science, and why would Christian homeschoolers want to give credence to another religion? Also, there is the The Scientific Case Against Evolution.

Now, their are Christians who make a case against YEC, but sometimes they recognize at least some of the Fatal Flaws in Evolution (PDF file). They don't wish to go to error filled position of Evolution and the Pope, actually even the Romish Church had a better position on Flood Geology and Intelligent Design. But, unfortunately Day Age - Progressive Creationism - Hugh Ross has gotten a foothold in Christianity.

So, Homeschooling parents may very well have to teach some of the basic ideas of he religion of Evolution, so their children get into secular universities, but they don't have to treat it kindly.
