For a start, stop telling or suggesting to young people that
they've got to make a choice between evolution OR creation. If a
Christian accepts that false dichotomy & goes to college & is told that
there's pretty good scientific reason to accept evolution, he/she may
quite logically take you at your word & stop believing in creation - and
in Christ. Matthew 18:6 applies precisely to those who put this
particular stumbling block before young Christians.
