Out of a childs mouth

A young grl down our street goes to the local Sunday School, and the teacher was giving a lesson about how Gods goodness was spread to 'The 4 corners of the earth'.

When she come home , she asked her mum, was the earth square?, when mum said it was round, the girl said about the 4 corners, like her teacher had told her.

Mum explained it meant the 4 compass points or everywhere.

Have you every thought about what you read or are told being literal truth.

Food for thought

Of course the Earths got corners...

they are just "tucked in".

Just another phrase from the King James Bible as, I believe, also "out of the mouths of babes and sucklings"...

..... spread a bit thin in places and missing at the corners

And I thought you had a sense of wonder (or are you all that old, you cannot remember being a child?)

I was at the Science Museum with my kids a short while ago. In their literature was a short write up on what can and cannot be done in space. One of the things they mention is that carbonated drinks cannot be had in orbit. A few days later I read this!

"1985: The drink became the first soft drink to be consumed in space when astronauts tested the Coca-Cola Space Can aboard Space Shuttle Challenger"

Going back a few years I was at a car boot sale standing next to a guy with his young son, the guy had just completed a purchase and the kid asked what it was. ‘It’s a 12v transformer’ said dad; son questioned ‘so what does it turn into?’
