Why kids go ape in school!

‘While evolution teaches that we are accidents or freaks of nature, creationism shows humankind as the offspring of a divine Creator. There are rules to follow which govern not only our time on Earth, but also our afterlife.

‘One philosophy preaches happenstance with mayhem as a conclusion; the other divine order. One suggests the survival of the fittest; the other, a commitment to serve the weakest and sickest among us…

‘Human action is determined by core beliefs. Creationism teaches that humans are wonderfully made with the promise of high expectations.

‘If evolution is forced on our kids, we shouldn’t be perplexed when they beat on their chests or, worse yet, beat on each other and their teachers.’

Barbara Reynolds, columnist, USA Today, August 27, 1993.
