Discussing Intelligent Design with our children

The theory of evolution may dominate biology instruction in public schools today, but you can equip your kids to defend their faith in God as the Creator. A strong spiritual foundation coupled with a solid understanding of God will prepare your child to resist a Darwinian worldview.

Ask your child:
~If I dump a box of LEGO pieces on the floor, what do you think the LEGO's will make? Why wouldn't they fall out in the shape of a robot?

~If I put the LEGO blocks and the robot directions together for a few days, would I eventually find an amazing creation? Why not? What do you need in order to make something?

~What would you think if someone told you that everything in the world is here because all the building blocks had been dumped together? Can things be built by chance? Think of everything that exists-from a bug to an iPod to a person. Does anything exist that wasn't made by someone?

~Who is our Creator? Why is it important to know that God created you and has a plan for you?

"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10
