Is it going to help them go to work? Evolution is a nice thing to be aware of, but can a creationist put that on a job application? Will knowing how evolution works make life wonderful?

If I were doing a job interview and you said you were a creationist, you'd be less likely to get the job. Being a creationist means you ignore authority on the subject (evolutionary biologists). And if you don't respect those authorities, then how could one trust you to respect the boss at work?

Knowledge of science helps makes you well rounded. I suppose it doesn't matter if you're going to work at Walmart and shop at the Piggly Wiggly, but for people who would like to get ahead in their lives it is helpful.
