Would the real teacher please stand up?

We have a cube that "unfolds" the Gospel story and has really neat pictures to go with it. Sam was looking at it today, and I was walking him through each flip of the block. The first picture depicts creation and shows God's perfect world - some animals, including a dinosaur are shown. I was explaining that the point of including the dinosaur was to remind us that dinosaurs lived at the same time as people.

"You know, some people think that the dinosaurs lived before people did." I told Sam.

"Well they did." he said.

"Really?" I thought of all the outside influences my child now has who have the power to shape his thoughts and beliefs.

"Yeah, Mama. Remember? God made the animals before he made the people."

My clarification about how some people believe it was millions of years before people fell a little flat after this revelation handed to me by my 6-year-old.
