I’m a creationist…get me out of here! was a youth feature in the July Evangelical Times. It is written by Paul Garner of the Biblical Creation Trust and provides some helpful suggestions for young people who have to deal with being a creationist at school, college or uni.
So you’re a Christian young person studying science? You believe in creation because that’s what the Bible teaches, but you’re wondering how to handle the issue at school or college. You have some difficult decisions to make.
Will you openly challenge what you’re being taught about evolution, or will you keep quiet? Will you avoid science as much as you can and opt for other subjects? Or will you embrace science and hope that your faith stands up under the challenge?
Being a creationist at school or college is not easy and in this article we want to give you some advice based on the experiences of others.
Update, 10/08/17: A couple of times this article mention ‘evidence’ for evolution. This could seem a bit confusing. What I believe the author means is that there are some persuasive arguments for evolution, rather than actual evidence. If we are to be able to effectively counter these arguements, it is important that we understand them fully and realise why they are so persuasive. Always remember though, that when properly considered, the evidence points to creation.
