Baby Grows Up

I think I passed a milepost yesterday.

My youngest son called about some random thing, and we ended up in an hour-long conversation about skepticism, rational and critical thinking, evolution vs pseudosciences such as Intelligent Design and creation 'science', Fundies, and Life, the Universe, and Everything. We were able to relate the conversation back to our trip to the Amaz!ng Meeting last summer, and hearing Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson speak.

When your son uses terms like "ontological argument" and knows what it means, you feel that he probably won't end up his days delivering pizzas and voting for wealth redistribution.
