Strawmen are not your friend

No matter where you are on the Evolution v. Creationism spectrum, you should avoid strawmen.  The following passage should never be taught to children, much less be in their textbooks. 

“It was very exciting when the first men walked on the moon in 1969. When scientists eagerly studied the moon soil and moon rocks, they found that the moon appeared to be about 6000 to 10,000 years old. This was not surprising to scientists who were Christians, because the Bible indicates that the Earth is also somewhere between 6000 and 10,000 years old. We know that our moon and Earth are about the same age, since God created Earth on the third day and the moon on the forth day of creation.”
