stop snacking Hottie.

I was raised on a standard of meat and two veg. My kids were meat, veg, perhaps pasta, rice for a change from potatoes and peas. Whenever they asked what the meat was I never pulled any punches. If it was pork I would say it is from a pig, etc...

They knew exactly where it came from and only one nearly turned veggie. It would have been her choice, but she liked liver and onions too much to switch completly. Even today occassionally she will eat all the veg and leave the meat.

We have never been into the "eat everything on the plate" brigade. If you dont want it, then leave it. But if you come back in an hours time saying you are hungry then be prepared to be allowed to eat toast and jam and nothing else. Of course Jules is the soft one and when I wasnt there she would allow them to eat anything else. Anyway they have grown up pretty well balanced and knowledgeable about their food and it's source.

(Of course not... because science concerns itself with observable physical evidence.)
I never suggested it was good science. These people believe the bible is the only evidence needed to prove their hypothesis, so to them the creation story is fact, and they are just teaching facts. America is still somewhat a free country so these kids can get access to science texts that are more recent that 3000 years.
