forwardslash: My mother shared a story of me when I was in the third grade recently. I was walking home and talking to the crossing guard and I said, "Did you know that some people think we came from apes?" She responded rather diplomatically, "I guess that question has been around for some time."

"No", I said, "Only about three weeks."

I have no idea why I was dealing with questions of evolution at that time, probably conversations with friends, but I was in no way equipped to deal with it. Even when we briefly went over evolution in my science class in high school it was a big cuffufle.

Funnily enough, when I took a semester of bible college my Intro to Christian Theology teacher really challenged the class on how we thought about evolution, creationism, and science in general.
