It’s a bit scary and/or creepy. If you teach in the US, you probably have students in your classes who have a very different understanding of causation of our world than most philosophy professors do. It isn’t exactly that they think the walls of your classroom are actually supported by the leprechauns – though quite possibly a few do – but they certainly think that what science purports to tell them about the originals of the universe and the evolution of the species is just all wrong. And this means that their capacity to react critically to all sorts of things is impaired.
TalkOrigins has what looks to be a useful site, with a depressingly long list of false claims creationists make. Some are very familiar, others perhaps less so – such as sea shells on mountain tops – and still others I think very esoteric. I had no idea, for example, there was anything special about woodpeckers’ tongues. Actually, there isn’t, but that’s not what creationists claim.
You can click on a claim and you are taken to an explanation and rebuttal. The rebuttals are sometimes too short, I think, and require more thought than may be available in the actual dialectic, but it’s something teachers can figure out, and sources are cited. So don’t despair the next time a student tells you that NASA scientists have discovered a day is missing.
