I am sitting on a MD-88 flying to Pittsburg, PA. and I can’t help but think of the Scientific American report that rated Pennsylvania as one of the nine states that is doing a “excellent” job with the evolution subject. How do I approach this group? Should I be submissive and tip toe around that fact that there are lies in the textbooks, or do I go in and start a fight with evolution and see who comes to watch? I pray that God will give me wisdom tonight to choose the right words.

Back in the airport! Went to bed at 1:00 am, ride picked me up at 5:00 am to bring me to the airport. I thank God that I can sleep on planes with out any difficulties, other than keeping my mouth closed when I sleep.
Last night was awesome. The meeting was put together by the intervarsity group at Clarion University, and was a part of a week long outreach to the students there in the university. Patrick, a senior at the university and soon to be a staff member of intervarsity picked me up from the airport to take me to the meeting. There I meet Megan, a freshman student that had led the organization of the meeting. I was very impressed.
I was able to speak for about two and a half hours and present half of seminar #4, Lies in the Textbooks, during my time. That gave us about an hour for question and answers. I was surprised when most of those that said they believed in evolution at the beginning of the night, were willing to admit that they agree that evolution is a religious view of true science, just as Creation is a religious view of true science. Just to get a large group of evolutionists to admit that was pretty impressive. I talked afterward to several of the students that claimed to believe in evolution and they said that the information presented would definatley make them think about what they believe. Praise God, both the seed of doubt in evolution, and the seed of the life in Jesus Christ have been planted into many hearts because of the Creation message.
