Electrifying, August 9, 2012
By Frogdog - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Science 4 for Christian Schools (Home Teacher's Edition) (Paperback)
This book is by far one of the best knowlegable books to help understand creationism. It tells us all about electricity and how God will strike you down with one of his thunder bolts if you mess with him. All electricity belongs to God and anyone who dares mention the word dinosaur or, heaven forbid, Charles Darwin, they will feel his wrath with a surge of electricity shot from his finger after he has peed on them with a golden shower.Which is the only critisism I have with this book because it doesn't mention electricity comes from him. Praise be to The Lord Bowman and his almighty tazer Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

1.0 out of 5 stars Science for Christian zombies., August 4, 2012
By Snarfcat - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Science 4 for Christian Schools (Home Teacher's Edition) (Paperback)
Why is it zombies eat brains but never get any smarter? I don't know, same reason Christians read "science" books like this yet remain mired in ignorance, myth and fantasy? I give it one star because I'm too lazy to change it to no stars. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars So I did what it said and went fiddlehead hunting, August 4, 2012
By Thomas D. Meacham "Thomas Meacham, MD" (GA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME) This review is from: Science 4 for Christian Schools (Home Teacher's Edition) (Paperback)
There was that passage in the book about God making different kinds of ferns and how you can go hunting for edible ferns. I took the book's advice and also went mushroom hunting while I was at it. It said that if you go looking for the fiddlehead fnords, you just might see them. I started to worry just what these fnords look like and became very fightened that one night eat me instead. Then I saw the fnord! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

1.0 out of 5 stars Only "one example"? Here are more., August 4, 2012
By TiredOfBeingRippedOff - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Science 4 for Christian Schools (Home Teacher's Edition) (Paperback)
A previous "review" of this book cites that only "one thing" in this book is bad. Check out these gems.

"A scientist who believes in evolution . . . would reason that the whole area must have been underwater in only the last million years or so. A scientist who believes in the biblical account of Creation would say that the fossil was probably formed a few thousand years ago when the Flood of Noah's time covered the entire earth."

"The usual explanation for coal given by evolutionists, on the other hand, involves imaginary peat bogs that are said to have existed millions of years ago."

"Evolutionists had hoped that some form of life might be found on Mars. Such a find would help support their belief that life 'happens' by itself wherever conditions are right."

"When Galileo first used a telescope to study the heavens in 1609, he was amazed at the number of stars he could see. He declared that the stars were 'innumerable.' People then began to have a greater appreciation for the mighty works of the Creator."

1.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining fiction, August 4, 2012
By Izzy "Izzy" (Lanesville, IN) - See all my reviewsAmazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Science 4 for Christian Schools (Home Teacher's Edition) (Paperback)
Because it's purpose is to make kids indoctrinated morons, it gets one star. The writers are more interested in making religious drones that will turn the USA into a theocracy. People who believe what this book says are non-productive leeches on society. Not a single person who was educated on materials from the Bob Jones University can claim to have a well rounded critical eye on the world. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

1.0 out of 5 stars Lacks Scientific Credibility, August 3, 2012
By Sean Geoghegan (Canberra, Australia) - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Science 4 for Christian Schools (Home Teacher's Edition) (Paperback)
I could not believe that this was a real book given its absolute lack of scientific credibility. I had thought it was a fake example generated by comedic rationalists, however it appears to be real. Do not buy this book, even for the laughs - it is not worth financially supporting such irresponsible authorship. Many examples of the poor scientific standards can be found such as eleven eye-opening highlights from this apparently creationist "science" textbook at Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

1.0 out of 5 stars How to use ignorance as a teaching tool, August 3, 2012
By LanceJZ - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Science 4 for Christian Schools (Home Teacher's Edition) (Paperback)
This has to be the worst book ever written. Why would anyone want to teach there kids ignorance? How can they, as a parent live with themselves for doing such an atrocious thing. How can the author sleep at night knowing what this book is to be used for.
If parents buy this book, there is no hope for the human race in its future. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews
