Topic Suggestions for Student Essay Contest

Print the Topic suggestions . Note: new suggestions exist in the online page that haven't been added to the printed version.

There are zillions of possible topics! But it must be strongly related to the topic of creation vs. evolution, or more generally, the accuracy of the Bible in other areas, such as history.

 Remember that YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PROVE CREATION. You just need to be careful and honest, and consult writings by both sides of a controversy. How can you argue for your point when you don't know the claims of the other side? Be aware that the usual sources (most textbooks, TV shows, movies, most magazines and newspapers) are very biased against God, the Bible, and creation. Remember also that a few evidences for creation are obsolete or poor, so you need to compare older writings with newer ones. Use several sources!

Do limit your topic to what you can discuss within your length limits. You may have to narrow your subject from what you originally planned.
