Worth knowing: Will anti-creationism hysteria targets homeschoolers? - Denyse O'Leary

In an age when it is hard to get an education no matter what you pay, expect to see public uproars about supposed evildoers. Creationists are a classic because no one cares whether kids learn anything or end up in jail or on welfare, as long as they are not taught “creationism.”

 Also Is twenty-five really the new fifteen? Or is that a better headline than a concept? The authors of the Escaping the Endless Adolescence argue:
Recent studies show that today’s teenagers are more anxious and stressed and less independent and motivated to grow up than ever before. Twenty-five is rapidly becoming the new fifteen for a generation suffering from a debilitating “failure to launch.” Now two preeminent clinical psychologists tell us why and chart a groundbreaking escape route for teens and parents.
As it happens, the only reliable escape route passes through the School of Hard Knocks.

Very interesting, Denyse.
The linked material plainly reveals the inconsistency in the position of those who so vocally oppose the creationist position in the account as given.
Thanks for sharing it. ~~+~~
