School teaches creationism as science

Postby Brian Jordan » Wed Feb 14, 2018 10:38 am

Not a lot of detail but...
Kings Kids Christian School rated 'inadequate' by Ofsted
A small Christian primary school which teaches the Bible's creation story in science lessons has been slammed by Ofsted inspectors.

Kings Kids Christian School in New Cross received an inadequate Ofsted rating and was criticised for its pupils describing gods from other faiths as “false gods”.

For science lessons, the school was criticised in the report for pupils not learning practical science or the skills of evaluate scientific evidence.

Similarly, British history was only a very recent addition to the study of history, with much of the focus being on USA Christian history.

The report said: “The creation story is taught in science and there is no evidence that pupils learn scientific theories about the origin of the Earth

Ken Ham displeased (or perhaps really pleased that he has another divisive propaganda opportunity in which the actual facts as reported by Premier are mostly sidelined in order to present everything in black and white terms and sustain an 'evil atheists' narrative because of some unrelated atheist activity in the US):
https://www.facebook.com/aigkenham/
"Here is an example from the UK of secularists imposing their anti-God, anti-creation views on people--this is happening all over the West as atheists (like those in the Freedom From Religion Foundation) have been allowed unfettered access to generations of kids to impose the religion of atheism on them:
https://www.premier.org.uk/News/UK/Ofst ... m-teaching"
According to the Premier article Ofsted criticised this independent Christian school because "students aren't taught about scientific theories of earth's origin" and they reported that "the school's curriculum does not meet requirements. Pupils do not study practical science or develop the skills to collect and evaluate scientific evidence". The Ofsted' inspection reports trouble Ken Ham, though because of their response to what they found rather than what they found. Allegedly at the school "the creation story is taught in science and there is no evidence that pupils learn scientific theories about the origin of the Earth". This is how Ken Ham would apparently like it. He is very concerned that because of Ofsted students might also be taught scientific theories or be encouraged to evaluate evidence (the school's spokesperson says they do allude to evolutionary theory as well as design theories) therefore students will have 'anti-God' views imposed on them. Now why should that be - if the scientific confirmation, based on the available evidence, of the literal real history of the opening chapters of Genesis is so blindingly obvious?

And this episode proves that at the start of this blog Ken Ham is not telling the truth:
https://answersingenesis.org/blogs/ken- ... -for-kids/
"The difference is that we interpret what we see through the lens of Scripture while others interpret that exact same evidence through the lens of millions of years and naturalistic evolution." In other words Ham and co are not doing science but religion.

I posted this on the Ham Facebook page - and was greeted by some nonsense falsely alleging that I was posting 'spam'. It's unclear which fascists (Facebook, AiG or AiG supporters are generating these intolerant responses). It looked as though some of the posts were being deleted, but so far I think they are still all there.

Spoke too soon. The AiG FASCISTS have just removed all my posts AND silently blocked me from further comment. Just because I told the truth. Ken Ham and co are LIARS and HYPOCRITES - this is further proof.

Ken Ham kicks up a right stink when it looks like he is the one going to be censored by academics ... (but his organisation detests facts).

To lighten things up a bit, here's a picture of that school from today's Freethinker. I'm sure they won't mind my reproducing it here.
