John and I were watching the first episode of Curiosty - a new show on the Discovery Channel which is promising to be a pretty interesting series.
The series premiere was Curiosity - Did God Create the Universe?. It was based on Stephen Hawking's view of the universe and how it was created. It focused on the Big Bang Theory which is something I learned in school.
So I asked John:
Me: Did you learn about the Big Bang in School?
John: *Looks at me as though I'm kidding* I went to CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.
A little later into the show.
Me: So what'd they teach you about what happened to the dinosaurs?
John: *VERY matter of fact* Noah's Flood.
Part of it was John's delivery of it, but part of it was just that I had never thought of nor heard of that before. Call my religious education limited if you will or that I was taught in very liberal schools (which I was. I was never taught Creationism in school. In fact in High School English we studied the Bible as a book of historical fiction). In a way it just blew me a way. Changing climate? Ok. Giant meteorite crashing into the Earth? Yes. Noah's Flood? They definitely didn't teach me that one in school...
