Granny Oz and the Creationist Grandkids

I wrote a letter to finish with.  One part pointed out that belief in the Genesis story of beginnings is not necessary for Christians.  Some of their sources tangle the two together and that is what they grew up with.  The early bible chapters have value in their own way but they are not a science textbook.  It is sad that young people are taught nonsense, have wrong ideas and worse, reject new findings. I told them I am alarmed they will pass on misinformation to other people’s children.  I‘ll keep trying with Michael and the others.  Perhaps in 10, 20, 50 years they will say their grandmother was on the right track after all.  Let’s hope.
From here.
