Children and Religion

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:

Wisdom

  • 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.

Compassion

  • 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.

    as early as possible? well, i guess at the age of 18 that is if you`re lucky. before that children are too busy with their clothing, playstations, football, cars … and with themselves to even listen to stories other people are trying to tell them. whoops! does that sound a bit cynic?
