I was wondering if any one has used Christian Liberty curriculum. I read some reviews online, was just wondering what anyone on here thought of it? I'm considering it or parts of it and then keeping Abeka for some subject. We have only ever used Abeka. Thanks.

I've not heard of Christian Liberty. Is their science more science-based than A Beka? I used to teach at a Christian school that used A Beka and got to see the elementary science, which said that humans aren't mammals because we have souls. I'd never realized before that, that the presence or absence of a soul was part of the definition for "mammal." Surprised me a bit.

I started the year using it but found it dry, hard to follow, and my daughter became bored with it. It just didn't work for us.

I have used several parts of it but not all. I have used some of the history books, science and spelling. I think they are excellent. I love the Nature readers and Building Spelling skills. We use Heart of Dakota, which uses some of the history books. I really like the spelling for my dd. It isn't flashy, but it teaches spelling rules and the words, at grade level,  do offer some challenge here and there for my natural speller.

They both are young earth, creation-based science.

I don't find the example you gave unsciency at all. Though humans do qualify as mammals in most ways, we are a level above all animals, if you believe the account in the Bible. If you don't, well, I would suggest not using a Christian curriculum.
