I was really worried about my mom’s visit, but we had a really wonderful time. She’s changed a lot – she believes that evolution happens. This is a huge step away from biblical literalism. Her rejection of creationism meant that she could truly enjoy our trip to the Museum of Northern Arizona.
The museum has an awesome geology exhibit on the Grand Canyon that explores how the land has changed over time. Fossils from different layers are a large component of the exhibit. They’re a lot more interesting when you don’t believe god put them there to test your faith.
