Avoiding Bad Arguments

Should Christians Teach Kids Evolution?

Part 3



This is Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum.


We’ve been looking at why we should—yes—teach our kids evolution! We know it’s important because children will run into it eventually, and they need a firm foundation in truth. Plus, knowing what others believe shows them you care. Here’s a third reason: it helps us avoid bad arguments.

If you don’t know what the other side believes, you’ll probably ending up using some bad arguments. Here’s an example: some Christians argue, “If we evolved from apes, why are there still apes around?” Well, evolutionists believe we evolved from ape-like ancestors and apes are our cousins. So, this is a bad argument.

Knowing what evolution teaches will help our young people effectively argue against it.
