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.
