The Big Questions

Joni's spontaneous explanation of evolution during a car ride: The dinosaurs were there, then there was a big explosion and they all died. Then you were a gorilla daddy, and we were lambs.

Haven and Joni have been wrestling with existential issues this weekend. Most prominent has been extended discussion of the end of the Earth and solar system. When will the sun explode? Will there still be people? What will there be when all the stars explode? Where will the dust go? Of course, Brian had answers for everything, so we're all good.
