12 Year Old Wisdom

Conversation with my 12 year old last night while we were watching some slightly silly History Channel program on UFOs, for lack of anything better on TV:

Me: It's only logical that there's life elsewhere in the universe. Did you see that Hubble picture? All those planets and galaxies and stars?

Andrea: Nope. I don't believe it.

Me: Is your mind closed already? You can't even consider the possibility?

Andrea: Mom...God only made us. We're special to Him.

Me: He could have made other worlds....other beings.

Andrea: Mom...He sent His son HERE.

Me: (smiling and lightly teasing) He could have sent other sons elsewhere.

Andrea: (shaking her head) Mom...His ONLY son.

Me: Oh yeah.
