The foundation IS the foundation!

Really, that makes sense to me, even if it doesn't to you. Studying Dinosaurs is hard!!! As a Christian, we believe in Creationism. As a human being, I think evolutionism makes sense as well. I was hoping Ashley wouldn't start asking questions just yet. That lasted about 2 minutes before her mind went to work and started spilling out of her mouth.
We are using Bob Jones Science 5 right now and we are actually enjoying it. I enjoy showing Ashley both sides of the argument and hearing what she thinks about it. We came up with the thought both sides could be in play. Reading the bible makes it seem like the earth existed but was just scattered everywhere, no rhyme or reason to it at all.

The universe, earth matter, light, day and night (Gen 1:1-5): In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, "Let there be light", and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day" and the darkness he called "night". And there was evening, and there was morning - the first day.

On Day 2  
Sky (Gen 1:6-8): And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. God called the expanse "sky". And there was evening, and there was morning - the second day.

Day 3
And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear."

HMMM that sure sounds to me like the Big Bang theory right there. Everything kind of moving around pretty damn quickly and into place!

So far things seem kosher to me....more on this later...
