Last night I was doing Council Time for our 3-6 grade kids at our Awana Club. I have been talking about aspects of God for several months so I thought it would be interesting to give them a chance to ask me any questions they had about God instead of me just going on with what I thought they should hear.
It was quite interesting. Kids are capable of thinking. One girl then asked this question after someone asked how God made Adam, “Is it true that women have one more rib than men? My science book says they do.”
Now, I have never heard this before and I was a bit taken aback that her science book would say that. I did a search on the internet and came up with tons of web sties explaining that men and women have the same amount of ribs and that Adam did not change the rib cages of humanity.
I couldn’t believe she said this was in her science book. But, then again, she is homeschooled and I know enough about Christian publishing to know you can’t hardly believe anything they publish. I sure hope this error is taken care of before we train too many more kids to look completely stupid.
