Indiana State Senator Dennis Kruse has introduced state Senate Bill 0089 that would require the teaching of creation science alongside other origin theories in public schools. As a resident of Indiana, I contacted Senator Kruse to offer my support. He has asked me to testify before the education board on January 25th. I have accepted. I will be presenting a 5-10 minute testimony followed by a possible Q&A time.
I understand this bill has a tough uphill battle to climb. My hope rests in the fact that Senator Kruse is the chairman of the education committee, and that the house/senate and governor’s office is all republican controlled. Even if passed, the bill faces major legal hurdles as the Supreme Court has already determined that the teaching of creation science in public school is unconstitutional. By Indiana passing this legislation it will send a message to other states that we do not agree.
I have not finalized my message yet, but I do know that it will be on the major differences between observational science (modern, testable, repeatable) and historical science (assumptions about the past). After I deliver the testimony, I will publish it here, and keep you updated. Please join me in prayer and support of this bill.
