Iucounu Posted November 13, 2011 Share Posted November 13, 2011 With all the recent discussions over YE/OE beliefs, evolution, etc., I'm curious to know if any of you who are YE believers have had children enter the natural sciences (astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, etc.). I am also interested in the experiences of those raised by parents with YE beliefs who entered a field in the natural sciences. For all answering in the affirmative, please answer a few questions: * Whether the student was you or your child * What field of science was studied or entered * At what sort of institution the natural sciences were studied * Whether the YE beliefs of the student/scientist were an obstacle, and if so, how * Whether the student/scientist responded by exiting the field, changing to align with scientific beliefs and principles, hiding his or her YE beliefs, or doing something else * The teaching approach you (or your parents) took towards subjects like evolution and the age of the universe I'm curious as to the impact on children's academic options. Thanks for your input. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
