….when you dissect animals every day? Well, on the farm it’s called butchering.
This morning, Jonathan was out preparing a hen for stewing and he found this collection of eggs developing inside. Pretty clear to see how the eggs develop! You see the yolk is first developed, then encased in a shell before laying. Fertilization would take place before the shell forms if a rooster is in the area. When there’s fertilization, a chick can be born. When no fertilization, just an egg for eating. If you eat the eggs right away, the chick doesn’t develop anyway.
You can have the boring science lab in a building of cinder blocks and fluorescent lights, dissecting smelly frogs shipped in buckets. Farm kids do far cooler things…and then get to eat the animals when they’re done. In the schools, they pretend that science offers kids some great opportunity…to see inside a dead animal!!! Whoa!
Pretty silly, no? Any farm kid who can butcher a chicken and fillet a fish gets a REAL education in anatomy that actually benefits his life. Get the poor kids outside where they belong. God made Adam and Eve a garden to live in, after all.
