PAUL TAYLOR

Most of us are totally unaware of what actually goes on in the teaching environment in the classroom. We may attend parents’ evenings and discuss with the teacher the progress of our children in the classroom. We help with (and sometimes actually do) our children’s homework. Parents and grandparents will talk with their children and grandchildren about what they are taught, but the children are unable to explain why they are taught what they are taught or what are the philosophical ideologies behind the teaching. In this carefully researched book, Paul Taylor powerfully and devastatingly brings to light the underlying thinking that is the basis for so much of what is taught in our modern schools.

Paul Taylor spent seventeen years teaching science in state schools, eventually becoming a Head of Department, and gaining a Masters degree in Science Education at Cardiff University. He became a Christian in his late teens. His first book, Just Six Days, arranged contemporary creationist thinking into biblical order as a commentary of Genesis chapters 1 to 11. Paul joined the Answers in Genesis (UK/Europe) in August 2005 as a writer and speaker. He is a regular contributor to the AiG website and Answers Magazine and is busy writing numerous articles, many of which are published in various Christian magazines. Paul is also an engaging speaker, and has made several TV and radio appearances, debating leading evolutionists. A single parent, Paul looks after his three teenage children, Gemma, Adam and Jack, and his elderly mother.

I can warmly commend this book to everyone that has an interest in the education of our young people.
—Dr A J Monty White, Chief Executive, Answers in Genesis

Students spend more time with their teachers/professors than they do with their parents in learning to understand what life is all about. As a result, their formalized education has a great impact on their worldview. Truth, Lies and Science Education is a valiant attempt to tackle this issue head on to engage the education system and parents in understanding the realities of what is being taught to children and how they are being conformed to a secular way of thinking about every aspect of reality.
—Ken Ham, President of Answers in Genesis, USA

This book by Paul Taylor will greatly help parents identify and deal with the problems that their children face in state schools. I sincerely hope that having read this book, many parents will consider giving their child a Christian education. I believe that many Christian parents do not realize the profoundly positive effect that Christian education would have on the church in general.
—Professor S.C. Burgess, BSc, PhD, CEng, MIMechE, Reader in Engineering Design at Bristol University

Paul is a keen thinker and has thought widely not only on the issues of Creation versus Evolution, but of the far wider social deconstruction which has removed the whole basis of Western sense of truth and even rationality. Only the Christian gospel founded in Genesis can rebuild the next generation.
—Professor Andy McIntosh. DSc, FIMA, C.Math, FEI, C.Eng, FInstP, MIGEM, FRAeS, University of Leeds
