Carnival of Homeschooling

Homeschooled Mom is hosting this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling, which includes Happy Elf Mom’s lament about science errors in Christian curriculum.

Our science curriculum is also a lovely, easy-to-use package.  Most of the information it contains is pretty timeless and factually correct.  Parts of a flower.  Simple machines.  That sort of thing.  But I’m not using this stuff next year because it groups humans in its own group apart from all animals.  The “scientific” reason being that Man has a soul and therefore is in an altogether different category by itself.

She doesn’t want her kid “laughed out of college.”

About Joanne


  1. I only recently ran into the idea that human beings are not mammals because they have souls and aren’t the same as animals. I get the impression that some zealous folks think that Linnean taxonomy is inherently a tool of evolutionists.

  2. They’ve got it backwards. Humans are far worse than any animal.
