"In our home school I teach my kids what evolution is, often using the evolution scientist’s own writings, so that they have an antithesis to our thesis that creation science is correct."

Interesting. Which "evolution scientist[s]" do you use, and what writings of theirs do you incorporate into your lessons?

We use Apologia textbooks in the later grades, written by PhD Jay Wile - General Science, Physical Science, and Biology, so far. A brief glance through his texts shows quotes/examples from Darwin, Albright (archaeology, Neils Bohr, Einstein, W.H. Burr, Stephen Hawking, Sir Charles Lyell, Max Planck, Ivan Pavlov. . .many many more.

More tellingly, we learn of great Christian scientists as well, who had no problem (apparently) reconciling creation with their field of endeavor: oldies like Bradwardine, Nicholas of Cusa, Copernicus, also Kepler, Galileo, Pascal, and Sir Isaac Newton. Robert Boyle, van Leeuwenhoek, John Dalton, and Linnaeus who gave us our basic classification system, Biology, no less. James Joule of the First Law of Thermodynamics!! Roger Bacon, Grosseteste. . .

I’d have to read all the textbooks through to give you everybody, but you get the general idea.

Evolutionist and Creationist scientists side by side, no fear, and that is where I really respect the Creation Scientists. They will tell you, with reasonable honesty, the opinion of the Evolutionists. I can attest to the honesty because I was taught evolution throughout my school years. Yet Evolutionists will not mention Creation Science even as a theory, even as something they oppose.
