Creationism meets potty humor

Jo: How do we make seeds?

Me: We don't make them, they grow inside fruits and vegetables and flowers and trees.

Jo: But who makes them?

Me: Nobody makes them, they have to grow from a vegetable or a flower.

[Repeat a few times until concept sinks in]

Jo: Then how did the first flower grow?

Me (totally copping out): Well, some people would say God put it there.

Jo: I know! God had a lot of seeds in his stomach, and then he pooped them out his butt!

That sounds like something I'd tell my (very christian) boyfriend. Just today I was asking him when Jesus comes back, if he thinks bodies are going to be floating around and stuff.

He said something about the graves opening up and yadda yadda, so I started walking around like a zombie and screaming "BRAAAAAIIINS!"

He didn't much appreciate my rendition of zombie Jesus. I personally thought it was fantastic.

Hey, maybe that's a new theory for the Intellgent Design folks.

Makes sense to me!

I wish catechism class had been this hilarious.

It's so nice to know that others have the same poop discussions as we have in our house.

Jennifer Playgroupie said...

Well, duh! Great theory!

The funny part is...that's pretty true in a way. I mean, that's what a lot of seeds rely on to grow into a plant: being pooped out.

And I know this how?

Why, from my little five year old botanist and excrement expert. LOL

Magpie said...

LOL! And of course, she's right.

I bet even God would be humbled by that five year old reasoning.

Lady M said...

Hahaha! Can't wait for the book version of this philosophy.

Damsel said...

Bwahahaha!!! I love those conversations! (The spontaneously hilarious ones, not just the poop ones... though they coincide quite often.)

Is this what our children learn in RE?


Luke just asked me where metal comes from. An answer I thought I had but......we had to call Nico! I guess I should have just said God!
Would that be a cop out???
