A grandfather took his highly educated grandson on a camping trip, set up their tent and fell asleep. Some hours later, the grandfather woke up his grandson and said, "Look up at the sky and tell me what you see?" The boy replies, "I see millions of stars." His grandfather asks, "What does that tell you?" The boy ponders for a moment and then says, "Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?" The grandfather is silent for a moment, and then says, "Practically, it tells me that someone has stolen our tent."
