His father and I looked around and found a patch of rock that clearly showed sedimentary layering. I pointed that out to the kid, and he said, “I can’t see it.” We walked a little closer, and I pointed to the layering again. He said, “I can’t see it.” His father and I were both trying to convince him that there was indeed layered rock right in front of us. It was very obvious.
As obvious as global climate change is to anyone with half a brain.
I pointed to it again and could almost touch it. He said, “I can’t see it.” I guess he wasn’t going to believe this failing, so-called mountain bike guide.
I ended the discussion with, “You know, you sound like someone who would have voted for Donald Trump.” When I dropped him and his father off after the ride, the dad gave me a pretty good tip.
