My kids go to a private school that I think is awesome except that they teach Creationism. I have told them to put whatever their teacher says on the test but I have explained evolution to them to the best of my limited ability and this is what I believe. Most of the time this has not been an issue. This year they are pushing an overnight field trip to a creationism museum. The kids want to go but I told them "no". It has a substantial cost and I do not want to pay to make them more ignorant. Lately, one of them has started with some push back when I talk about evolution. I fear I am losing the war.
I am not sure the best way to handle this.They have some arguments against evolution that I am sure are from some creationist's pamphlet and the kid's can parrot them nicely.(Stuff like creatures can make small changes over time but don't have the genes to become a different creature-Humans couldn't have come from apes)
How is the best way to nudge them towards evolution without being too much of a jerk and having them rebel? Should I just let it go? I'm not sure I can.
