Today I spoke to 500 6-12 grade students at a Christian School. They use the Bob Jones science curriculum. A large number of the kids are YEC.
They treated me with incredible respect. I explained my problems with Ken Ham’s castle metaphor, why I am a Christian, and that “secular” means “fair.” They had just learned about “fallen science” versus “biblical science”, and were pretty shocked when I compared science to a “secular” restaurant, that is there to treat people fairly.
Had about 3.5 hours with them for questions. Every question was about evolution, Adam and Eve, and Genesis. My book is going to be really helpful for this crowd. So interesting. The teachers were glad to have me and might have me back next year.
Remarkable. There is something good in this next generation of students.
