Mama2Many4 Posted September 8, 2012 Share Posted September 8, 2012 I am a Catholic with an Old Earth View. Now, I LOVE Apologia Science because of the story and narrative style. It fits into the Charlotte Mason way of learning that we love. BUT Jeannie's view has overtaken her views of science itself. She downs any sort of proof that would lean towards the earth being old and places all of her scientific theory on the Bible. I LOVE the Bible, I read it nightly. But I don't put the Bible up against science. They are not at odds with each other, but they compliment each other. If you are old earth and use the explorer series, how to you work around her views on almost every page. My children love the books, and I'd hate to have to switch. Besides, I have NO CLUE what I'd switch to?! :confused: How can she write science textbooks and then tout that the sun is not old, and have excuse after excuse about why there are sunspots. Why the sun cannot be that old and the moon etc.. It seems to me that she is writing young earth creation books, and not "science" books. We're studying Astronomy right now and I've had to cross out so many paragraphs in that book, that sometimes I wonder if it's even worth doing them at all.
