Well you have managed to develop logic and critical thinking with your kid, instead of taking facts for granted he questions it, good job as a parent
>This has bitten me back on several occasions when he has called me on my own BS.
(A) You should be very proud.
(B) Don’t BS that kid. 😉
A lot of times I cringe when atheists post that their kids share their same beliefs.
To me it’s the same as a Christian being happy their child loves Jesus. It’s essentially “my kid believes what I believe, Yay!”
This is not that post. Sounds like you’ve managed to instill a healthy dose of critical thinking in that kiddo already and it sounds like you are letting them be exposed to all sorts of different viewpoints.
I commend you for creating an environment where your child feels safe to discuss these things with you.
I’ve always wondered what it would have been like to be raised without people telling me what the absolute truths of life were and instead letting me find them on my own.
Seems like you’re doing just that. Kudos to you.
Religion only works if children are indoctrinated. Not if they learn to think for themselves.
When I was a child I found ancient Greek myths far more believable than those bullshits Bible stories about Jesus.
