Renee, sorry if I hit a nerve with you and I'm not claiming to be an expert on home schooling culture. I'm well aware that home schooling has grown over the years. But some of your comments got me curious so I googled it and according to this Catholic homeschooling website http://www.homeschoolingcatholic.com about 5 % of home schooled students are Catholic. Now, I don't know how good those numbers are, but are likely pretty close.

The numbers are still off becuase they're only stating those enrolled in full Catholic programs. This site is also leaning towards the traditional and may purposly not count curriculims run by catholic insitutions that regularly accept Protestants. The problem with that is the popularity of curriculims has diminished signifigantly, as protestant books are no longer anti-Catholic as they were in the 90's. I'd say the numbers of Catholic homeschoolers per homeschooling are much higher...perhaps 20%...and when you're taking millions of kids, it's quite signfigant. Many Catholics take advantatge of free online school material and don't bother shelling out $300-$1500 a year for someone to plan their books and such.

No, Peter, that is not the entirety of my argument. I've half a binder full of articles on the subject too from various new articles, polls, professional journals, and the like. Back when I was a student, it formed a large body of our studies ethics, the worth of man, his origin, etc. I'm not saying that evolution has been disproved...on the contrary, it seems likely that God may have directed evolution for the purpose of creating new species, but that is another discussion in and of itself.
