South Carolina Christian School Fourth Grade Science Quiz

by gizmo59Follow



The source of this quiz is the father of the student who took it.  He will not identify the school until June, after his daughter finishes the school year there, after which she will move to another school.  Snopes rates this item as “probably true.

I’m pretty much speechless here.  Plus, the test speaks for itself.

Bryan College is a special creation

And a spokesman for the college says, “It’s in our DNA”??? (Last sentence)

Bryan College now says Adam and Eve “are historical persons created by God in a special formative act, and not from previously existing life-forms.”


Bryan College is named for William Jennings Bryan, who defended Tennessee in the Scopes Trial.

And on the 2,167,393rd day*, God created Bryan College….

Monkey Trials Again

The Tennessee Monkey Bill

The Tennessee Senate approved legislation this week that some are calling a “monkey bill” — after the Scopes Monkey Trial, which also took place in Tennessee. In fairness to the state, it’s not quite that bad.

In the 1925 Monkey Trial, John Scopes was accused of violating the Butler Act, which made it illegal to teach evolution in a public school. (He was found guilty.) The 2012 Monkey Bill, tame by comparison, merely guarantees that teachers will not be disciplined for “critiquing” the “weaknesses” of scientific theories “such as evolution and global warming.” It also requires school administrators to “assist teachers” in finding “effective ways to present the science curriculum as it addresses scientific controversies.”

Tennesseans who are members of the National Academy of Science have said the bill will lead to “unwarranted criticisms of evolution.” The National Association of Biology Teachers concurs. The group sent a letter to Gov. Bill Haslam arguing that “concepts like evolution and climate change should not be misrepresented as controversial or needing of special evaluation.”

The difference between the Butler Act and this new legislation encapsulates the change in the anti-science crowd’s strategy, from outright bans on disseminating factual information to fake controversy and false equivalencies. They’re learned to manufacture doubt and pretend it invalidates scientific consensus. It’s a surprisingly effective tactic.

Of course, no theory is ever certain in science.

Microbes and the Days of Creation


The world of germs and microbes has received much attention in recent years. But where do microbes fit into the creation account? Were they created along with the rest of the plants and animals in the first week of creation, or were they created later, after the Fall? These are some questions that creation microbiologists have been asking in recent years. Ongoing research, based on the creation paradigm, appears to provide some answers to these puzzling questions. The answers to these questions are not explicit in Scripture, so the answers cannot be dogmatic. However, a reasonable extrapolation from biological data and Scripture can be made about the nature of microbes in a fully mature creation. This article attempts to provide reasonable answers to when microbes were created and is meant to stimulate discussion and further research in this area.
