Family: Who sets the Rules? and Cool Animals- especially Eagles!

[Podcast Episode 57] What makes a new family? Who sets the rules for life and why? The end of Genesis 2 gives us some serious instructions for our lives and gives us a glimpse into the great treasure we lost when we sinned- no shame. Then, it’s a fun romp through some fascinating animals scientists love to study including all kinds of eagles.

Genesis 2:24-25

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.  And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

We don’t get too deep into things, but the whole issue of who sets the rules for life is at the center of Western cultural thinking. It’s also a topic kids know plenty about!

Creation Research News Digest

I’ve enjoyed following John MacKay’s Australian creation ministry ever since running into him on the Creation Today Show. They do some amazing things with hands on education for those in the country and have one of the most fun newsletters to keep up with the intersection of science and the Bible.

You can see the newsletter I read from right now.

Eagles

The best website we found to learn about all the species is the Eagle Directory. It has an evolutionary bent, but the pictures are great and the real world info is fascinating. Turns out eagles live everywhere but at the Poles and come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and diets. Have fun exploring!

The US Fish and Wildlife Service has an article on our local eagles including what we did to help keep them from extinction.
