When Presbyterians Have Children

So, I was at my Young Presbyterian Women's group the other night (which is way more fun than it sounds, honestly) and one of the women mentioned that her son, who goes to a highly academic Christian school, has been reading a lot of books about dinosaurs.

Apparently, came to her with some concerns: "Mom, how can God have created the earth in seven days like it says in the Bible? This book says that the dinosaurs didn't live at the same time as people."

My friend, put on the spot, could only come up with: "I think the original earth blew up, and God had to start over."

That is incredible! Sounds like they need to take a trip to the good ole' creation museum!

Oh, but that's the funny part -- she's totally on board with science and evolution. She just couldn't figure out a way to articulate it, so she gave up!

My wife would argue that she still lives with a Dinosaur. JBF
