Museum of Northern Arizona

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.

Ammonite Fossils

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.

    Listening to Palestrina and listening to the thunder.

    It’s so rare for someone to change their mind about something like that. Good on your mom.

    The idea of worshipping a trickster good is deeply troubling. I’ve met a surprising number of people who believe god is out to trick them. That I do not understand. I’d punch god in the face if he tried some shit like that on me.

    I’m glad you had a good visit with your mom, and that’s great that she’s open to non-literal biblical interpretations.
