Our 8-year Old Takes On the Big Bang Theory

Hey Dad, the other day I was reading this book about science and it didn’t say that God created the world. It said that it was just a bunch of gas and dust that came together and earth came out. But that don’t make sense, cause we’ve got a lot of gas and dust in our house and it doesn’t create anything.

Keeps talking…

But then I thought, who made the gas and dust?

Exactly!!! Smart kid! Like his dad I suppose…

Reminded me of this story:

A summit of scientists believed that because they now had the power to create life, God was no longer needed. So they all decided that someone should go and tell God. One man volunteered to go. One day he climbed a mountain and called upon God. “God! We humans now have the ability to bring people from the dead, we can create our own life, we don’t need you anymore so you can leave us alone.” God listened to the scientist and nodded his head. “Okay, I’ll tell you what, if you can really create life, let’s have a competition, if you can create a better person than me, I’ll go.” So the scientist agrees and begins to collect some dirt to make his person. God simply watches him and finally asks him what he’s doing. “I’m using the dirt to make a person.” God smiles, looks at the scientist and replies, “Go make your own dirt.”
