Posted by Orrin Judd at March 28, 2012 6:49 AMOne day, Anna, the 5-year-old daughter of two "proudly secular, well-educated urban Danes," asked her mother if God had created the world. Frederick, her father, carefully explained, "The world wasn't created. It has always been here." Anna didn't buy it, so he went a little more in-depth: "Well, a long, long time ago there was this big bang and suddenly everything just appeared." The girl thought about this, trying to wrap her mind around a concept we all have trouble with."God must have been surprised," she said.
