Christians4Science is an Apologetic work of the Bremen Church of Christ in Georgia
In an effort over five years ago the Carnegie Foundation and the National Academy of Science published a vision for Science Education. Improving science education is a good thing. The bad news was the curriculum includes Darwinian evolution. Evolution was to be a unifying theme in all grades. Due to Christian people and others opposing these efforts this process has been slowed down. In Georgia the Next Generation Science Standards has been abandoned. Leadership has worked to write new standards. A draft came out in January 15, 2016.
As Christian people, we support quality education and want our children to have
the best learning opportunities. God gave mankind the command to have
dominion over creation. "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our
likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the
birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over
every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." Genesis 1:26. It is
often stated that science is thinking God's thoughts after Him.
Good science and
Christianity go hand in hand. There is no conflict. An effective education
in K-12 science is important to every Christian home. Concerned citizens
Darwinian evolution goes against common sense, has never
been proven and is not scientfic. It is a belief system about reality that some
want taught. It is not a fact of science. Once in place, evolution
is difficult to remove. For example, in 2006
Today we are facing a much bigger challenge. Over 26 states have been involved in the effort and several have already rewrote science standards for their schools. This was perhaps done without critical thought using the Next Generation Science Standards . Georgia put the process on pause giving more careful attention into the matter. That was commendable. But we still need to be involved in this process and demonstrate a proper influence.
Our effort is centered on challenging the content of evolution. Our goals are to inform the public and engage the Christian community into action. We want content about evolution removed. Teach it in an elective course about origins of man. We are not asking Creation be taught in public schools. That is the job of the church and the home. Teach science in science classrooms. Teaching evolution at taxpayer expense should never have begun, must be challenged, and can be stopped!
What can you do? First, become educated. Knowledge is power. Use this site to get information. We need to speak up and out about this concern. Push past the emotional attacks, intimidation and sound-bite criticisms. There is good reason to oppose evolution. Using state schools to teach evolution may very well be a wrong in America that is easy to correct. Get involved in the political process. Contacting school and government officials takes time and effort but must be done. Look at our research, sign our petition, and tell others about this work!
