Another week shoots past

I'm amazed by people who keep a dedicated journal. I never have that much interesting to say. This morning I woke early and thus have gotten a pretty good start on the day. I checked the various ant poison traps and see the ants are eating it, so hopefully they are taking it back to the nest and this will do what has been promised. Silhouette got out in the yard and the mockingbird Was Not At All Happy with this and yelled at both the cat and me until I captured cat and returned him to house. I put away the dishes and took stuff out to the recycling bin, then came in to read email. One story in the New York Times caught my eye, leading me to sigh a big sigh and follow it up with an even larger ARGH (you have to be registered to read articles at the Times, but it's free). But I won't rant about even the annoyance of the words "creationism" and "Darwinism." I find it mind-boggling that there is still debate on the subject at all, and the comments about the Grand Canyon just make my head hurt. And I'm no scientist.

I just printed out the article to show to Stephen--we started the unit on evolution this week. We went to Discovery Place on Thursday and saw Sue, the T-rex, and one of the kids (lots of homeschoolers there that day), when asked what might have caused dinosaurs to become extinct, said Noah's flood. Stephen went up to the DP volunteer after the lecture and they had a nice talk about some new fossils that show even more clearly the dinosaur-bird connection and speculated on Sue's breastbone and how it looks like that of a mammal--you could tell he was so happy that he didn't have to couch his words.

There are just tons of those Jesus/truth fish devouring Darwin fish in Charlotte. Rebecca, of all people, once had a boyfriend who believed dinosaurs had been created by Satan. A former neighbor once asked me if Stephen was aware that dinosaurs never existed; she later modified her beliefs because her minister told her dinosaurs are mentioned in the Bible.

Sadly, we missed out on Tyranasaurus Sue when she was in Mesa last month -- I kept wanting to go, but for some reason or other we missed it. We did see the "Dragons of China" exhibit, and that was cool.

Thing about me is, I DO believe. I'm Christian. However, I cannot fathom an Infinite God who is confined to the pages of one book. I see the Bible as an interesting study on how early man viewed their maker, but I don't honestly think that's the Final and Only Word of God. I think God's words show in all his creations -- from microbes to dinosaurs to, eventually, man. And who says one of God's days equals one of ours? (rant, rant) I always liked "Science Made Stupid," where it shows how Adam and Eve had three sons -- one of whom was murdered, and the other two married. Women. From somewhere. The chart shows how those women evolved. I re-read Genesis and it clearly states there that Adam and Eve were the parents of the HEBREWS. Everyone else must have evolved. :D Therefore, both theories are correct.

I've always wanted to get a Darwin fish and a Christian fish together on my truck with the words, "with God all things are possible."

Sigh. That's what scares me. :-(
