Bizarre brainwashing behaviour Re M. Leblanc’s letter ( 33 ( 2), p. 4): his attitude is so typical of the kind of thinking thathe French higher education he French higher education system produces. The State system ruthlessly excludes any discussion of Creation or I.D. One pastor I knowas berated as berated by his son’s teacher for daring to teachis boy about Creation and is boy about Creation and by extension God. I do not overst t a e the point when I say that the authorities are paranoid about the rise of ‘creationism’ in Europe, and in particular France. Leblanc’s rant perfectly shows the rank ignorance that exists here in Europe between what creation is and evolution is not. I think that in other times one would conclude that the gentleman had been the victim of a sinister brainwashing. Nowadays, this bizarre behaviour is the new normal . Patrick Clarke France High praise! I just received my Creation 33 ( 2) and wanted to let you know how outstanding I think the design work is. The titles are so crea i t ve and the layouts are just delicious, unique, rich and interesting. Most importantly, the text istill perfectly readable. Well till perfectly readable. Well done! My compliments to all the designers involved with Creation magazine, and the website for that matter. From a design point of view, I think CMI is going from strength to strength. Well done!
And I hope the excellent
resources you produce
attract the eyes of unbelie
and Christians who are
the fence about creation
evolution. CMI is makin
difference. Keep up the gr

Thanks, Amanda. That
means a lot to us (Amanda
was leader of the graphic
design team at CMI for a
couple of years.) “Creation magazine … changed my life” I have been a subscriber
to Creation since the early
90s and it has helped me
climb from a life in hotels
where I was involved in and
saw the worst of life. I can’t
remember how my first copy
came into my hands, but it
certainly changed my life.
David B. Australia In Poland Thank you for your very fine
magazine! Am sharing it
here in Poland with friends.
Thank you for it being so
fundamental!!! (who said
that fundamental needs to
be bigoted and intolerant?).
May God richly bless your
ministry, in our
telling/sharing with others
the fundamental necessities

Trusting the Bible?
You’ve done it again—another
It’s too bad Jonathan
Sarfati found it necessary to
quote William Lane Craig
in his otherwise excellent
article, “Should We Trust
The Bible?” Craig is either
dishonest or blind to the truth
when he states that the world
is billions of years old and
that the Bible has nothing
to say about the age of the
earth (Craig says this in a
YouTube video titled “Age
of the universe”).
Dr Sarfati: As shown in my
book Refuting Compromise,
I am well aware of Craig’s
I am twelve and, even though I am
Afrikaans-speaking and Creation magazine
is in English, I’ve been reading its children’s
column since I was about eight. Today
I devour the entire magazine, which
contributes greatly to my knowledge of
English and science. Last year I translated
the Seven C’s of History into Afrikaans for
CMI South Africa—with some help from
my mom. Earlier this year my brother and
I bought the Afrikaans translation of Can
you feel the force?, a book about physics.
On Sir Isaac Newton, it says that he
“incorrectly” calculated the year
in which the creation took place
as 3,500 BC which is “out
by about 4.5 billion years”.
Wow! How brilliantly clever
Newton was 300 years ago!
