“dad always has his gun on him, except at church”
bomb # 1.
the ex always having a gun on him!?!?
well THAT is a subject for another post,
and stronger laws.
which lead to a conversation about obama and expensive ammunition as taught by above concealed gun carrier.
which lead to a discussion on the market being lead by fear and hysteria,
not common sense and facts.
which lead to a conversation about oil, swine flu, Y2K,
which lead to the following conversation:
“you would not believe how religious dad is!!!”
“he thinks we came from the Big Guy (pointing skyward) and not from monkeys!!”
the following emotion from me can only be described as this:
“and…..you think we did evolve from monkeys?”
“well yeah, where do you think we got these babies?”
this was asked while wiggling his thumbs.
holy kit batman!
i am grateful i was already sitting on the floor,
because my mouth did not have far to drop.
“well, i would love to hear your thoughts as to why”
as he proceeded to give me his reasons and opinions,
i was frantically trying to figure out where he came to this conclusion.
i realized that i do not discuss religion very much with the kids,
school in utah county would most certainly not teach this,
and then it hit me.
the BBCkeats has always been obsessed with Walking with Dinosaurs
which lead to prehistoric america
which showed a species who looked like apes,
almost like man,
fight with another clan that was slightly more evolved which obviously proved that we have come from apes with the strongest prevailing therefore always evolving until what we are today.
this discussion lasted for about 25 minutes.
he did a most excellent job making his point.
in the end we decided we would go to the library today and get more books to study on the subject.
him on evolution,
and me on ‘how to raise an atheist as converted by the BBC’
damn Brits, they do know how to drop a good bomb.
