This echoes much of what I believe to be the best way to educating one’s children about Life, the Universe and Everything. From the section What I do intend to indoctrinate my children with as early as possible:
- Doubt the stories people tell about how the world is, (especially about God, creation, birth, death, etc.) for as long as possible. But learn all the ways in which we fool ourselves, and search diligently for your own answers.
- The two most important things to do while you are alive, are to be kind and to be happy. That is, to be kind to all creatures including yourself.
