Not everyone can homeschool.

Since the evolutionists control most of the science education, wouldn't that lead us to lay more blame at their feet, than, say, at the feet of creationists?

Nice try.

The answer is no.

First, many homeschoolers are fundamentalists/creationists, and they certainly are not going to tell the truth about radiocarbon or radiometric dating -- its too threatening to their beliefs, and they probably either never knew the information in the first place, or have suppressed it for being some form of "Darwinism." *

Second, much of education is still controlled by fundamentalists and creationists. There is a major effort on their part to stifle the teaching of evolution in particular and science in general. What do you think led to the Dover case, and that silly sticker on evolution texts in Georgia? Textbooks are written to avoid trouble, and evolution is almost never taught in much of the southern United States. It is probably not taught adequately in 90% of the school systems. You and yours are much of the reason.

You want evidence? Look at the understanding of evolution and science you received as a homeschooler! Your posting history on this website concerning science is enough proof for anybody.

Pretty pathetic: creationists do everything they can to deride science and then you try to blame the school system for not teaching science. What a pathetic joke!


* Darwinism -- a term used by creationists to include all scientists who disagree with them.
