Teaching Science from a Christian Perspective

My girlfriend’s younger brother is doing homeschool this semester, and we just happened to stop by and see his textbooks. At first, I thought nothing of it, but then I actually read the thing. This book, supposedly a learning tool, does its best to defame science as a working tool to understanding our universe. I could go on and on about how science really is a great way to understand everything, but here is a whole book devoted to the opposite. What’s worse, it is FILLED with science, all of it very valid. The problem is how when they are referring to anything that might conflict with the Bible, they use words like “supposedly” and phrases like “it is said.”

Why do I care? Because this is a textbook…and Logan (my girlfriend’s brother) is suppose to learn from this thing. The first line in chapter 11 is “That God is the Creator of this world is an undeniable truth.” What good is a textbook that takes such a one-sided view?
