Classroom Activity--Measuring the Ark

A great learning activity for all ages (4K–grade 12, even adults), is to go outside and mark off the actual size of Noah’s Ark.  This article provides some ideas on how this might be done.

Let Students See What Skeptics See
by Philip Janke

We can let them see some challenges while still under our care, allow them to wrestle with them a bit, and help them find the confidence to face those challenges–confidence God gives through his Word.

The Purpose of Babel
by Jonathan Ross

Today in our Bible history lesson, we’ll explore an early civilization whose plans to build a great structure fell apart. More importantly, however, we’ll see the reason they stopped this massive building project, and how it applies to our relationship with God today.

Teaching Discernment using evolution videos
by Mark Bergemann
Showing evolution videos to our students, and then teaching a Lutheran response, can be of great value. Students can gain skills to evaluate evolutionary claims and separate the true parts of evolution from the false parts. These are valuable skills that can be used throughout their lives.

History Timeline
by Daniel Olson

I plan to have my students create a large world history timeline filling an entire long hallway. We will initially focus on world history as recorded in Scripture from creation through 100 AD. Before students add any people or events, the lives of five people will be highlighted on the timeline: Abraham, Moses, David, Ezra, and Jesus. Students will then add other people and events.

Evolutionists and Creationists Often Agree
There are many points of agreement on natural selection
Mark Bergemann, 2019

16 pages
"Let’s examine how one of the most famous champions of evolution, Richard Dawkins, describes natural selection’s ability to produce new Biblical kinds.  After writing nine books on evolution, Dawkins realized that in those books 'The evidence for evolution was nowhere explicitly set out.'   In The Greatest Show on Earth—The Evidence for Evolution, Dawkins states, 'This book is my personal summary of the evidence that the theory of evolution is actually a fact—as incontrovertible as any fact in science.'”

A Biology Textbook
by Mark Bergemann

Evaluation of a biology textbook.  Useful for teachers, students, and parents to see how such textbooks use very poor logic in their attempt to convince students that evolution is true. This textbook is a college level book, but this article can help you understand grade school and high school textbooks too.

Did God Use Evolution To Create?
Video by Mark Bergemann

-- Why do some Christians believe in millions of years?
-- How do they attempt to make the Bible conform to millions of years?
-- Scripture shows these Christians place their Christian faith in jeopardy.

Why Do Some Believe in Millions of Years?
This video shows why evolution is incompatible with the Christian faith.  It can be shown in three sections of 8-10 minutes per section.
