a beautiful spring day…thanks to god?

April 4, 2006

So, apparently at my sons new preschool, the teacher is telling them that the reason we have the sunshine, the baby animals, the whole lovely world is because god created it.

GOOD to know. note to self: GOD made everything. And here I am thinking that evolution and the big bang were it? Silly me. If you learn it in preschool, it must be true.

I do ask myself, “self, is this worse than the worship he does at the TV and that advertising is the god that my guy worships with a vengence…so is this different, this god thing? or is just some more commercialism in a pretty picture so you “buy” into what they say?”

Hmmmm? What to do, what to do?

Do I care about this in general? Yes.
Do I fear that my child will be turned away from the existential existence I have so lovingly provided for him? Maybe.
Do I care about that? No.

If I believe I am an individual with a brain to come to my own conclusions, I must also believe that for my son. No hypocrit am I …atleast today, about this. I reserve the right to flip-flop anytime it is convient.
