We can do it easily, and most of the propaganda tools appropriate literature will be donated through the generosity of Answers in Genesis. Isn't that great?
[Editor's note: As school, for many, is starting up again, we thought we would publish the following piece that was submitted by a student in a public high school, giving practical advice on how to “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” according to 1 Peter 3:15. After seeing the detrimental effects that the belief in evolution has had on young people in this country, she started a creation club to show her fellow students that real science confirms the accuracy of Scripture. Be sure to visit our Education section for help with starting a creation club of your own, information on online coursework, steps to becoming a creation scientist, and more.]

So you want to be a ‘creation scientist' …
By Stacia McKeever

‘Can you tell me how I can be a “creation scientist”?'

AiG receives numerous requests from students wanting to know how they can train to be ‘creation scientists'. We usually offer the following guidelines to these enquiring minds:

Do any Ph.D. scientists believe in a literal six-day Creation?
In Six Days
Why 50 Scientists Choose to Believe in Creation
by John F Ashton, Ph.D.

Can any scientist with a Ph.D. believe in the idea of a literal six-day Creation? In Six Days answers this provocative question with 50 informative essays by scientists who say "Yes!" Taking a factual and scientific look at the evidence for evolution, physicists, biologists, and chemists conclude that evolution may offer no more evidence than traditional religion, and factually, it may lag behind.

There aren't courses that train you to become a ‘creation scientist'. Rather a ‘creation scientist' is just a scientist who views the world from a ‘big picture' Biblical perspective. I.e. the universe was originally created ‘very good' by God in six actual days a few thousand years ago; the perfect world was marred by Adam's sin, and later suffered the watery judgment of the global Flood, in which all air-breathing, land-dwelling animals (except those representatives on the Ark) died. These scientists use their experiments or research projects to ‘fill in' the Bible's ‘big picture' and further our understanding of the world and universe. E.g. some current ‘hot topics' are: What were the boundaries of the original created ‘kinds'? How is it possible that we see light from stars billions of light-years away? What is the creationist understanding of radioisotope dating?

I can tell you exactly how to become a "creation scientist." All you have to do is dig a hole just large enough and deep enough to fit your head, and then fill it with that very object. That is creation science in a nutshell, and anyone can do it.

Having a creation club at here SFN would be a gas, and I think we should start one as soon as possible. It would be an excellent place to snare the unwary and lay a little Darwin on them..... Hey, they do it to us!

Better yet, why don't we start an Evolution Club? Make membership open to everyone, starting with tens of thousands of real scientists, then adding hundreds of millions of critically thinking laymen. Base the Club credo on actual observation of the world, while allowing this to change as better information comes in.
