Cheri Fields of Creation Science 4 Kids is passionate about showing kids that Creation is a valid scientific view point. She has just published an ebook, Mysteries of Time and Creation: A Short Intro to Young Earth Creation, that can help parents teach this to their children.
Written for middle schoolers, this short ebook sums up little known ideas about the age of the earth and evolution. You will not find these ideas in mainstream media because evolution is so ingrained into our society that few are willing to look at evidence against it.
Cheri begins by discussing the biblical truth about the days of creation, the world’s original perfection, and what happened after Adam and Eve sinned. Then she discusses a main background reason people like and promote the idea of an ancient earth rather than a young one. After this groundwork the rest of the book presents scientific rather than biblical evidence.
Scientific procedures such as radiometric testing of rocks, carbon 14 dating, starlight, ice cores, rock layers, and tree rings are explained in simple terms. Next Cheri discusses signs the earth is not all that old: the earth-moon distance, the saltiness of the ocean, continental erosion, lack of mud on the ocean floors, the earth’s magnetic field, supernova remnants, and helium in rocks.
After this Cheri turns to evolution and explains the incredible complexity of life. She details the difference between natural selection and adaptation, both of which can be observed, and evolution, which is a historical theory. She mentions and dismisses genetic drift in one paragraph, spending a lot more time on mutations. She explains the different kinds of mutations and their effects, pointing out that even the amount of mutations humans carry, their Genetic Load, points to a recent beginning of human mutations.
Cheri links to some resources in the body of her book, and has a resource list at the end as well. For other interesting information about creation, you can follow Cheri on Google+ or subscribe to Creation Science 4 Kids. However, for a comprehensive overview I recommend Mysteries of Time and Creation: A Short Intro to Young Earth Creation.
Written at a middle school level, but also a good introduction or summary for teens and adults, the Mysteries of Time and Creation is a valuable resource. Because Cheri is so passionate about sharing this information, she offers the book for free here and for the lowest allowed price here.
