What do you say when your child asks you, where do we come from? Many Americans respond with the Biblical story of creation but this is t the case in other countries. Religion is an important part of our culture and history but more truth about our natural world is being revealed every day. This is the story of our universe and the journey that humanity is making through it. The discussion is presented in a manner that young people can understand and particular attention is given to the difference between belief and kwledge. It touches briefly on speculation about the existence of the soul and how various cultures deal with that issue but the primary intent is to provide facts based upon what we actually 'kw' about our universe. This is a straightforward discussion for parents and young people who value truth over belief and fact over mythology. If that describes you, then you are likely to embrace the information with relief and wonder why it took so long for someone to address this controversial topic so directly.A Country Cop Books publication.
