First, you might want to have a serious look at this article from the Institute for Creation Research:

Wanted: Young Creation Scientists by Jake Hebert, Ph.D.

If you’d prefer to attend a college where the staff acknowledge their Creator God, Answers in Genesis has a page listing all the ones they are aware of HERE. If the school you choose isn’t on this list… be prepared.

Except for some papers meant for scientists, you’re ready to tackle most of the articles posted by creationists. Here are a few of the best I’ve run into: My introduction to an article on a High School Genetics Text Book.

Answers in Genesis article: 14 Evidences the Universe isn’t Billions of Years old Naturalists love to throw out dates “proving” the world must be super ancient. What they explain away or refuse to mention are all the dates that prove the world can’t be as old as Evolution requires.

This post is a link to a series of testimonies from people who found their Creator, Jesus: New Year, New Creatures

And my series God is Mean:

Has God Said?,

God Calls for Death,

Favoritism

There’s a science blog packed with stuff too complicated for the younger set, but amazing once your brain can handle it: Proslogion by Dr. Jay L. Wile. If you enjoy his style, you can check out his high school books from Apologia which have helped a lot of people really “get” science.

You or your friends watch the new Cosmos series? Find out all you need to know at the Challenging Cosmos website.

I once had a God-denier tell me Theistic Evolutionists are a “transitional species”, meaning he saw them as almost having escaped the hold of ancient religion, but not quite. Creation Ministries International has an article about a man who proved the idea true: Review, Karl Gibersons, Saving Darwin. Before you head out into the “real world”, it’s worth thinking through where going soft on Genesis will lead your faith.

Just why is taking the Creation account literally so important? Because Jesus did. This article is designed for scientists and Bible scholars to read, but I bet you can handle it too: Jesus, Scripture and Error: An Implication of Theistic Evolution

Need a dose of encouragement that the rest of the Bible supports the Genesis account of creation as stated? Check out this page of audio talks. The New Testament on Creation presentation lists all the references with power point so you can check them all out.

Arguments the skeptics use all the time:

You’re sure to run into people claiming “over 99.9%” of all scientists believe Darwinian Evolution. Find out the truth HERE.

And, “we know creationists who claim to be scientists can’t be real because they never get published in peer reviewed journals.” It’s a bit of a slog reading this article, but worth getting your head around: Creationism, Science and Peer Review

My friend, Cowboy Bob, talks to skeptics a lot (keeping them too busy to bother me much, praise the Lord!). He’s written a series of logic posts to prepare you for the tactics they use over and over. He also has a MUST READ post on So You Want to be an Apologist?

Occasionally, you’ll run into an old argument that Creationists couldn’t care less about learning science because they believe in a “God of the Gaps”. Find out who really believes in such a god and where we fit in HERE.

This 7 minute video gives you a demonstration of the power you, the student, have to reveal the truth about where scientific evidence actually points. I can’t promise the same results, but God is still as powerful today as He was when your parents were young!

Crash Course Traning on Creation, Teaching, and Apologetics in person:

The Creation Training Initiative is the ministry of longtime Creation teacher, Mike Riddle. He’s a former Marine, educator, and has worked with Answers in Genesis and other Creation groups over the years. What he’s decided to spend his time doing is teaching us how to reach people in our own places and generations.

It doesn’t take a year, semester or anything close, just a couple days or less!

You can find out lots more on this Creation Today Episode (he says you guys are some of the best at what he teaches) and check his schedule for nearby classes.

Websites:

Creationist Company is a growing group run by and for young people. Maybe you can get in on the action!

Creation Tips Teen Page,  weighty and relevant stuff for the becoming-grown-ups crowd

Youth Apologetics Training the name says it all. He has an MP3 section just on the Age Of The Earth

Answers for Hope, an expanding website helping Christians be confident in their faith and learn to share it with world. You might start with their post on how a good God could allow evil.

The Evolution Crisis,a website sharing the testimony of five scientists who turned to Jesus and His witness of creation.

Apologetics Shorts does just what it says: gives you a dose of how to think as a Christian in bite sized chunks. The author also has some high school physics videos to check out. Do you think he knows how to use his brain?

Want a website to walk you through how logical believing in the Creator God is? Check out Show Me a Sign by fivefold ministry Ireland. Then, invite your unbelieving friends to check it out too!

Apologetics Fiction Started in part by Tim Chaffey the author of the Truth Chronicles (who works at Answers in Genesis). Parents, check out this interview about the series.

Podcasts:

The topic of suffering is an important one to get your mind around as you see more and more of the real world. This podcast is a great place to start: Suffering and the Christian

Scripture on Creation has a weekly podcast. They also have some cool articles like “who were the Sons of God in Genesis 6?” The links are tiny, but you’ll find them!

Real Science Radio you can sign up for all of Pastor Enyart’s shows or just the Creation Fridays. The stuff he collects is mind-blowing!

There are lots more links on the regular media page.

Videos for adding confidence in God’s Word:

This is the most powerful video I’ve even seen helping us to realize the reality of the Bible’s first history. It’s none too short, but every minute is packed with incredible information about our early ancestors. Watch, rewatch and have your friends join you!

A minute+1/2 testimony by Colin Heckroodt about studying Creation Science in high school. And a tiny video of him kite surfing just in case you think all creation science kids are geeks.

Origins show by Cornerstone TeleVision

Creation Today: Eric Hovind and Paul Taylor’s show (my all time favorite for learning cool stuff!)

Creation Ministries International some are a minute long, some an hour+!

Creation Science Evangelism including Kent Hovind’s (Eric’s dad) with his set of videos
