Big Foot and the Slippery Slope

Sep 08, 2012

I'm not sure whether or not there is a "Bigfoot" or "Sasquatch" but the topic makes for interesting conversation in our family. This summer, we were driving from Phoenix to Flagstaff for the dedication services for our new church. The boys eyes were intently focused on the game they were playing with their ipods. As Cyd and I marveled at the beauty of the landscape with flowering cactus, deep canyons, rolling hills and majestic mountains in the distance, it dawned on me the boys were missing the wonders of God's great creation. When I said to Seth and Caleb, "Turn off those games and take note of this beautiful scenery; you won't remember anything about the drive from Phoenix to Flagstaff and that would be a travesty!" They replied with groans as if their stomachs were tied up in knots. I then concluded, "Besides that "Bigfoot" might run across the road!" Why did I say that? Then came the flurry of comments- Seth: "Dad I can't believe you believe in Bigfoot. He is not real. In fact our fifth grade class came to the conclusion that he's not real. There are some people who have been looking for him for 5 years and they can't find him. BIGFOOT IS NOT REAL!" I cajoled Seth by saying, "You know how much unchartered territory there is in the U.S. When we have flown to Seattle, we have traveled by plane for hours over nothing but forest. You don't know what's out there." With a long, exhausting sigh, Seth said, "See Dad, that just how things get started; One minute you believe in Bigfoot the next thing you know, you start believing in Aliens! I could only laugh at the logic and I realized I was now sliding down the slippery slope.
