What do creationists tell kids about scientists?

The whole tottering pile of argumentative waffle that is creationism survives partly because it's proponents have convinced themselves that a grand multidisciplinary, multigenerational, international conspiracy of both scientists and other theists exists and they are all either incompetent or lying.

So how do they describe their children's own science teachers to their kids?

I teach Sunday school for first through third grade, and over the next few weeks we’ll be discussing dinosaurs, radiometric dating methods, natural selection, and mutations. I teach them that what they learn in public school in regard to historical science concerning these ideas is not the truth.

Should folks like this be trusted with public money to run schools in the UK?

If you have an application to run a free school near you from creationists please get in touch.

We can help.
