"God made everything. Every thing everywhere," little kid said. He's a serious Christian. He loves God and he loves Jesus and Bible stories and he talks about those things frequently. The rest of us aren't as well-versed or faithful. I've been thinking I'm going to have to start attending church just so he can continue to have this once he leaves his preschool (because it wouldn't be cool to drop him off on Sundays, right?).
"No! That is not true, little kid. Human beings invented some things. A lot of things, actually," Big Kid retorted.
"MO-OM! Mom! Moooom! Is that true? Is what Big Kid said is true? God invented all of the things everywhere, right? Because that's what I knowed. I knowed that He did."
"Well, hmmm. People believe He inspired or helped create everything everywhere. Like, God didn't invent cars but He put the right people in the right places with the right ideas at the right time so that cars could be invented because it would change the world in a good way; that God has a plan and things will work out the way He thinks they should."
"So are you saying God inspired the dumb comments people leave under Youtube videos?" Big Kid asked in disbelief.
It's a good question. If any one place summarizes everything wrong with the world, it's probably the comments section of Youtube videos.
"Um. Well. He also gave everyone free will so that they could make their own choices, so I guess He made the Youtube comments possible by allowing people the ability and choice to say those things."
"Well...I kind of wish He hadn't. Maybe there are some things people shouldn't get to choose."
He's got a point. I don't know if Youtube comments would be on my short list of things God should stop people from doing, but maybe it should be.
