What I find interesting in the story Unob, is for all the bashing of religious folks, no one 'forced' their ideas onto this six year old except his atheist father.
What in the world gave you that idea? The writer seemed to be very careful about being neutral and simply willing to let the child talk freely.
HE had the same approach as I did with my kids and, I suspect, as you had with your kids who evidently have wildly distinct belief systems.
But the father made sure that the boy understood that God was 'an idiot'.
You often amaze me with the leaps of logic. What in the world gave you that idea?
