Using homeschooling to expose evolution

In light of the above, it may seem surprising that creationists would advise you: make sure your [homeschooled] kids know about evolution! But teach them more than they would learn in public school—teach them the problems the Big Bang and evolution, and prepare them to ‘be able to give an answer’ when they encounter evolution being taught as fact, as they inevitably will.

My two cents

I like how homeschooling is more flexible than a government education (which is more like a politicised straitjacket in a top-down syllabus). It must be great to be able to homeschool, and have the freedom to go outside the box like that.

Come to think of it, I would take a homeschooling curriculum to go beyond critiquing the Big Bang and evolution, to scrutinise all things humanistic, statist, or anti-Biblical. The important thing I suppose is to land a wife who thinks the same way (otherwise it could fall apart). I wonder if there are lots of soon-to-be married couples who would talk about approaches to homeschooling before they got married. I hope I’m not the only person in the world who thinks like this.
