What are you, high? Did you even read his post? His point was that we force certain beliefs and practices on our children, because we believe they're for the best. Religion is no different. What would you do if your child decided he didn't want to learn English? Would you tell him it was okay, and that he didn't have to? I doubt it. Teaching someone to read a language that will help you every day of your life is not on the same level as making them learn about your religion. God damnit you guys. How often did you hear this at the elementary level: "Now students, when you go home to do your multiplication tables tonight, make sure you question the fundamental elements of mathematics and why 3x5=15. The same applies for your analysis of Gertrude Chandler Warner's The Boxcar Children." Never. Ever. That is because children have not developed the cognitive abilities to do so and you must know the rules before you can appropriately break them as you see fit. As a child you may be taught to question the teaching abilities or methods of your teacher as I was, but you do not question the basics of English or Math skills. That is my point. I'm not commenting whatsoever on the repercussions of being convinced that God is real for your entire childhood. Yes but your argument is bullshit because (most) christians and sensible people would agree 3x5=15 but only christians would regard jesus as the son of god etc etc the main fact and difference being muslims,hindus,buddhists, are all taught 3x5=15 and are not told about jesus. secondly i dont think anyone has the cognitive capabilities to break the rule or falsify that 3x5=15 or that c comes after b and b after a.
