Stink Bombs, Sri Lanka, Outerspace...

Okay, you're probably wondering - what in the world do stink bombs, Sri Lanka, and Outer Space have in common? One very interesting field trip.

I took the day off to spend the day with Sarah going on a field trip to UTA. But,it started out very interesting this morning. When I got to Sarah's homeroom class, I noticed one of the trouble makers showing someone a cigarette lighter. Turns out the kid not only had a lighter, but smoke bombs and stink bombs. Thank God, he didn't set them off or start a fire. And he is most likely going to Turning Point, an alternative school for kids like this.

After that was taken care of I followed the sixth grade class to the waiting yellow buses. Now folks, believe it or not, I have never been on a school bus before! So that was exciting in itself. (I know - I'm easily entertained)

So, off to UTA we go. When we got there, we were escorted to a ballroom that had been turned into an exhibit hall. There were many different cultural exhibits there along with a band of college students that played music from India. It was very interesting and Sarah & I even got to dress in a Bangledash outfit as you can see in the photos.

Next we visitied the planetarium. During the program however, I wanted to start quoting Genesis 1 because the whole movie was based upon the big bang theory (I didn't capitalize on purpose because it doesn't deserve to be capitalized). To think that a universe could just create itself is so ridiculous. There is no way that something could just come together and be perfectly created without a Creator. Louie Gigleo - "How Great is our God" brings the greatness of God down to our size. God created a universe so big, my mind cannot even comprehend it and He's bigger than that! I would hate to think that I just "happened". No, God created us in His image.

So, there's my field trip story. And here's some pictures to show for it!


  1. Sounds like you had a fun day. Hope you have a Happy Easter!

  2. I hope they treated you right! You know, it's my alumni dollars that are paying for you to have a good time at The Harvard of the South! :-)

    Hopefully Sarah had a good time and caught a glimpse of how fun college can be. And, let it be known, not everyone that goes through college turns into evolutionist mush minds. She has a good mama and daddy helping her wade through the propaganda to get to truth. There is a British mathematician / scientist that computed the probability of macro-evolution occurring. I forget what the ratio was, but he equated the chance of it occurring to the probability of a tornado sweeping through a junkyard and yielding a fully functional Boeing 747. But, instead of embracing Creationism, he now subscribes to a theory that life was planted on Earth by aliens (only displacing the issue of origin).

  3. I left an award for you on my blog. Go grab it and pass it on.
