  • One thing that needs to be taught is the Bible and Catholic history. 

    Teach a science that is geared towards agrarian practices.   

    Very few children in our area were taught how to butcher their chickens, lambs, etc. and to can their fruits and veggies.  (These skills were taught mostly by their grandparents.)

    And the need to raise animals and a garden naturally.

  • I put some of my favorites:

    -City of God- Saint Augustine
    -Rome History- Indro Montanelli
    -A Study of History- Arnold Joseph Toynbee
    -Histories- Herodotus
    -Mister Inquisitor- Julio Caro Baroja
    -Castaways- Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca
    -The True History of The Conquest of New Spain -Bernal Diaz del Castillo
    -The Roman Republic- Isaac Asimov

    About Hitler, it's best to read Hitler directly, his two books are: Mein Kampf and Zweites Buch. Both can be found in English.

    You wion't find almost anything of quality written about Hitler, because on the one hand the officialdom refuses to admit that Hitler was a socialist, they want to sell us that he was a capitalist and called himself a socialist to deceive the workers, and since that is the key to understanding why he did what he did, they are unable to explain anything and have to to resort to saying that he was crazy and similar things, when if you understand that he was a socialist, with a socialism based on race instead of social class, everything makes sense and what he did makes sense from that point of view. 

    On the other hand, the "dissidents" dedicate themselves to inventing reality: Saying that Hitler was a man of peace when he clearly despised them, that he wanted to fight against communism when he clearly says that his interest is expansionism and that communism is a happy coincidence but that he doesn't want to invade Russia just for that, that Hitler invaded the USSR as a "preventive measure" when in Mein Kampf he already explains what he has to it do and why, etc.

     The best thing is to read Hitler and so you can see what he really thought and not what the propaganda on one side and the other says about what he thought.

    I can recommend a book: Hitler's Beneficiaries-  GÖTZ ALY. The book explains how the Third Reich implemented socialist wealth redistribution policies that benefited the German population, thereby winning the support and loyalty of the population.

    Once you read Hitler, you simply have to read any book that describes the facts and everything falls into place once you understand how he thought.

  • I would like to find some science and history books that don't refer to the globe or darwins millions of years.
    Regarding science teaching books, you can definitely find texts written by young earth creationists who are opposed to macroevolution. Here are a few to check and see if they are what you are looking for.   

    Our Lady of Victory's homeschooling program uses "Exploring Creation With..." books by Dr. Jay Wile for pretty much their entire high school curriculum. A few are here: 

    Biology: https://www.olvs.org/store/subjects/science/biology-text/
    Chemistry: https://www.olvs.org/store/subjects/science/discovering-design-with-chemistry/

    To be clear, Wile is Protestant, Young Earth, and a biblical literalist. He did not seem to inject Protestant-specific ideas into his books though. 

    For the earliest grades, I've seen the "Seaside and Wayside"  series 1-4 being used. https://www.olvs.org/?s=seaside&post_type=product&dgwt_wcas=1

    These are basically re-prints of 1890's natural history books for children. They focus on observing animal behavior.  There are no doubt some archaic spellings/animal names etc., but no evolution. They do inspire curiosity about the natural world, and are an interesting way to get exposed to English vocabulary from an earlier time. (Would help a lot when it comes time to read English literature etc.).  


    As for the globe vs flat question, whether or not this comes up in a given science teaching book is largely dependent on the specific science subject. Creation-based physical science or general science books probably would get into this in some form, but it depends on the book. Creation-based biology, natural history, physiology/health, agriculture, and animal science do not really get into this topic as the shape/location of the Earth is not the focus of these subjects. They might say a specific animal/farming technique, etc. is found in a particular country or region, and might show it on a map, but that is about it.

  • I wouldn't worry about the globe vs flat when teaching kids about the earth. You don't cease to be Catholic because of your position on the shape of the earth. I would say it's more important to emphasize geocentrism and young earth creation.

    If you want to avoid the modern assumptions about cosmology, then it would be better to stick with Cassini and a ptolemaic system while showing the problems with modern astronomy.
    "Be not therefore solicitous for tomorrow; for the morrow will be solicitous for itself. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof." [Matt. 6:34]

    "In all thy works remember thy last end, and thou shalt never sin." [Ecclus. 7:40]

    "A holy man continueth in wisdom as the sun: but a fool is changed as the moon." [Ecclus. 27:12]

    Harder times are coming.  Time to get prepared.
