Am sure this may make those that don't believe in Evolution grind the enamel off their teeth - but I loved it and thanks so much for sharing the link! And it actually be easy enough for my grandchildren to understand when I share it with them this weekend - thanks again, Grinler.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

Why?

I watched the first 2 mins. If it goes like that for the other 4 mins then its just more garbage from the science books about evolution.

Hey, I don't call your Bible teachings "garbage", CGM.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Mara believe me I had no intentions of offending anyone by my "garbage" comment.

But evolution is garbage. Its just a theory to try and prove a way for the universe to happen without a creator.

If you were to look at the science books throughout the years the EVOLUTION books and information change. Its a theory!(not fact) that keeps changing.

I dont believe in evolution. Evolution teaches we are animals nothing but random things. When we are not. Read this article I found.

If you want to talk pm me.

CGM, you need to pick your words more carefully. Though, you may not believe in evolution, that does not make it garbage. Would you like it if people called creationism garbage?

Try to respect other peoples beliefs.

Also no more comments on religion...this is not what this thread was meant for. If you dont like the video...go to a different topic.

Grinler, thanks again for the school house rock videos site! My grandsons loved them - in fact, the youngest one (after re-watching 'Planet Janet' 13 times!!), left here singing the song! Hoot!

I sent the link to a friend of mine who is a Grade 1 teacher and she wrote back to say she thinks wee videos such as these are a great starting point' to discuss these topics with her little ones, too.

Thanks again!

Kind thoughts,
Mara
