I'm about to embark on a field trip with my geography learners on a 500 million year travel back in time around Chapman's Peak etc.. this is clearly challenging with a few who think that the planet nay universe has only been kicking around for about 6000 years... I found this brilliant infographic which will hopefully go some way to putting everything into perspective - i will also distribute to a few colleagues I think -my favourite part is Jesus on the velociraptor :)

Gaah! Please, please, please do not perpetuate this utterly hideous, awkward and ridiculous linguistic abomination. Please. Despite our deficient basic education system and the nincompoops who run it, they are still “pupils” or “students”, not apprentices.

O I believe the creationist answer is that Dyno's where called
Dragons and all the knights slayed them that is why they are extinct.

Hence all the story's about dragons.

I forgot what creationist said that though?

I must add, I loved geography in school. I can't remember that the age of the planet was ever mentioned but the utter scale
of what it takes for things to changed, was enough for me to realize the age of the planet must be a lot,
which later documentaries later taught me. I actually never heard
the 6 years argument till I was an adult.

Whoopsie... I usually just refer to them as kids actually... maybe the daily brainwashing is working!! And never to myself as an"educator" - I hate that even more. Maybe the next step is for them to be educatees?! We have mentor groups and they get called "Mentees" that for me just sounds like childhood sweet from the 80's.
