    It might be of value to your secular readers to note that R.E.A.L Science, Elemental Science, and Noeo are NOT secular. They do not teach, nor start, with a foundation of evolution and are at best ‘neutral’ science, which is not real science. Pandia Press is secular and one of it’s science authors wrote this blog post to help understand why neutral science is not neutral:

    Mari B. – If I click on the R.E.A.L. Science link, it goes to Pandia Press website. Can you help me understand how Pandia Press is secular, but R.E.A.L science is not if Pandia Press is selling it? I just started looking into what science curriculum I want to use. I’m grateful for all of the helpful blog posts and links!

    REAL Science Odyssey IS SECULAR. And it is from Pandia Press. I’m not sure what the first poster was thinking when she said it is not. I am thinking that she meant to say that Real Science 4 Kids is NOT secular. It IS actually based in intelligent design though it touts itself as “neutral.”

    Thank you for your insight! I think secular is one of those terms that people vary in definition on. In the case of this list, I guess I was headed more towards “not overtly religious”. I am always thrilled to gain knowledge from others though!

    NOEO Science isn’t secular. I just was looking at the description for chemistry and it wraps up with this sentence: “All of these books have been carefully selected by Dr. Randy Pritchard (a practicing veterinarian and homeschooling father of two boys) to guide children into discovery of the complexity, order, and wonder of God’s design.”

    This is what Cathy Duffy reviews has to say, “While the curriculum itself reflects a Christian worldview, most of the resource books do not. The introduction to each book suggests using encounters with secular or materialist viewpoints in the resource books as opportunities for discussion rather than skipping over them. I also suggest that since the resource books are your primary source of information, Christian parents might want to add discussion about God’s design or presence when it seems appropriate.”
