Figuring out the “who cares?” problem:The layperson and the education of children as the arena of central concern

Thank you for your responses to my query about Watermark church’s apologists.

Who really cares about this origins question in America?

Only three times in about 100 years has it become a public issue of high concern and media attention.

1925… Scopes trial
1981-1987…the Arkansas and Louisiana creationism cases
2005…the Dover ID case

All the settings were polarized by the court climates and promoted by the media like boxing matches.

The educational system has evolved to allow creationism and evolution to be taught in two different kinds of high schools, private and public.

But 90% of Christian students still have to attend public schools.

There is the crux. The Christian family who is financially forced to allow their kids to be exposed to the public schools.

Isn’t this the reason the Institute for Creation Research and the Discovery Institute can still raise millions of dollars even though the public school classroom is off limits to them?

I am trying to figure out how to live out the Great Commandment at my community college with atheists who teach biology.
