My son is nearly 17. He asked me the following question last night …
“In Biology, we are learning that all humans started as bacteria.
In Religion, we learn that humanity started with God creating Adam and Eve.
Who do I believe?”
I told him that he should put his faith and trust in God and believe in God and pray, etc. Don’t know if he was too impressed with my answer though. He asked me this question just before going to bed so we couldn’t have a good long discussion about it and I want to sit down and have a good mother/son chat about it. He is reaching the stage where a lot of his friends are questioning why they have to go to Mass, etc. etc.
How would any of you respond to that? Any comments would be very very much appreciated!!!
