Hi all,For the past three years or so I've been collecting audio files that foster a skepticism of religion and an appreciation for science to play for my boys (ages 8, 6, and 4) in the car. I've put them all into a Spotify playlist.http://open.spotify.com/user/1212458330/playlist/6PYhSDCoHlWjtXKOcQ8Aa3I'm continually adding to it, so please let me know if you have other recommendations! Thanks!KevinSee More
"Hi Andrea! How old is your little one? I've never seen any board books related to science, secularism, atheism, evolution, etc. Of the books that I'm aware of, Our Family Tree: An evolution story is the book geared to the…"
There are 2,229 results for Noah’s Ark books on Amazon, most of which surely explain that the rainbow is God’s promise that he’ll never murder all of humanity again with a flood.Now, Richard Dawkins, author of Unweaving the Rainbow:…See More
"I would explain to her that an Atheist is most commonly define by not 'what"' they believe, but by what they 'don't'. You have to beliefs! and explaining that to you child in an age appropriate and respective manner…"
"Just thought of another way to possibly resolve this. Perhaps you can phrase your disbelief in different terms that would be more acceptable.
So - if a kid asks about prayer - you can say, well, some people think that works, but I don't think…"
"I don't see how your children can see the alternative to their mother's beliefs if you are not allowed to voice your own beliefs, or disbeliefs. Is that not in a sense...lying? If anyone is to make an informed decision about anything, they…"
"It's as if she's come up with a technical reason to force you to keep quiet. It's the same old, atheists believe in nothing and so should remain quiet, canard.
Providing as you say, you aren't insulting theists for…"
"Telling your beleifs is not really bashing her religion, like it seems she is threatening to do to your beliefs. I raised my kids to have ALL the facts about both sides, not omitting what I think they should or should not know. Only in this way will…"
"One way to deal with this is to ask her to help you come up with wording that is honest about your lack of belief but that is stated in a way she feels is positive. It may be something simple that you can do, regardless, engaging her in figuring out…"
"Since Atheism is defined by what Atheists don't believe - that is what you believe. I agree - you can't be honest about your atheism if you aren't able to say you don't believe in gods. I see nothing wrong with that. As long as…"
My wife, who’s Mormon, doesn’t like when I tell our three boys what I don’t believe. She wants me only to tell them what I do believe. So saying, “I don’t believe that intercessory prayer works,” for example, if off limits. She claims she doesn’t tells our kids anything bad about atheists or any other group, so I have no business telling the kids what I don’t believe about prayer, the holy ghost, the existence of God, the resurrection of Jesus, or any such thing.I don’t say Christians are…See More
I usually ask him after Sunday school lets out and we're in the car coming back home what the lesson was about and if he asked the teacher any questions. Sometimes he'll say something, and other times he doesn't, either…"
I have three kids, ages 6, 4, and 2, and my 6-year-old was in kindergarten last year. I take a more proactive approach. I talk to my 6-year-old the most since he's the most capable right now of understanding religious concepts. I…"
