Darwinian Evolution and My Son

Today we went to the Royal Tyrrel l Museum in Drumheller, AB (www.tyrrelmuseum.com). The museum is situated in the Badlands of Alberta and houses one of the largest and most impressive collection of dinosaur fossils in the world. It is a truly spectacular place to visit.
At one stage in the tour through the museum there is a display telling of Darwin and the theory of evolution. On one wall was a display much the same as that pictured here. My son Noah, 6 1/2, sees the picture and walks up to it pointing and says - "We don't believe that. We don't believe that." A few people looked at him - perhaps thinking he was odd. It brought a smile to my face. I don't believe we have had a long serious discussion over the issue of evolution as of yet - though it has come up. He is fascinated by dinosaurs as most boys are at his age and we have read countless books on the creatures. Darwinian evolution inevitably comes up. I guess in the little discussion we have had and in his reading and hearing of God's Word the theory of evolution does not fit. Thanks be to God!

Thanks be to God, indeed!

We don't believe in Unicorns either.

But that doesn't stop the Unicorn believers from trying to cram it down our throats.
