God, My Brain, and Play-Doh
According to the National Toy Hall of Fame, Play-Doh was originally created as wallpaper cleaner by Joe McVicker. But when teachers found kids had an easier time modeling the cleaner rather than traditional clay, McVicker shipped free Playdough to schools all over the Connecticut area like Santa Claus.
Why does the most popular book of all time discourage learning about the world around you. It tells of God modeling man from clay, Eve from his rib and their ignorant lives in Eden. But the clay defied the hands of God when Eve quenched her thirst for knowledge with apple juice. I don’t want to live in Eden and I don’t think Eve did either.
If God doesn’t make mistakes why is it called a disorder. Google defines my brain having a disorder that involves difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols, but that do not affect general intelligence. That will make you turn your head towards the floor when the classrooms get rid of picture books and Play Doh. The brain is a muscle, if I push it hard enough it will be strong, but I can’t fill in the blanks with extra brain tissue. But to my molding mind, I will be a merciful McVicker.
