The youngest among us "get it." It takes years of indoctrination to make them give up critical thinking and simply accept what grown-ups spew at them from the pulpit: How My Six Year Old Boy Debunked Intelligent Design Posted by Bryanderthal on February 13, 2010 at 7:00pm View Blog I was attempting to explain to my son, Brance, who just turned six two weeks ago, why it was better to refrain from saying “Oh God!” especially around his grandparents. He didn’t understand why it was such a big...

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. Not the Mormon grandparents and not the Catholic grandparents. But the father made sure that the boy understood that God was 'an idiot'. So a six year old can understand the complexities of genetics and mutations and evolution, but God is an idiot. Right.

And you find me a six year old who understands the nomenclature of the animal kingdom, and I'll buy him a new car.

I'm not an atheist, but it is obvious from scientific study that the fundamentalist belief in a young universe and denial of evolution are simply wrong. The Catholics resolved the question of science vs Bible centuries ago, and mainstream Christianity embraces it. The cult of fundamentalism requires the Bible to be literal and inerrant or their distorted philosophy falls apart, much like Scientology requires a belief in alien domination. The formula is simple, Bill Gray = Jim Jones and his...

PS: Basically daddy said "Son, there is this stupid fairy tale you will here about that ignorant people like your grandparents believe in, but it's OK, we can accept that they are idiots." A completely accurate portrayal of religion from an atheist.

OK, so the atheist's child can't grasp it but christian parents of a six year old can swear their children love and worship the lord, many claiming their three year old can "preach a sermon" as well as any adult, and beaming at them when they recite their little verses and swearing they understand what they're saying. Got it.

LOL, don't put me in with magpie/idiot or Bill. I'm not a Christian, remember. FWIW, I told my kids about God and that I believed he was real. I also told them about other beliefs as well. No lying as this daddy did and no ridicule. As stated I have one who is Druid and one Agnostic. They decided on their own, not because of me laughing at the religions.

b, From my reading of it, the father was responding in kind to the son's level comprehension, his son's level of incredulity and at what the son in particular found amusing about that creation story. I didn't read imposition unless one confuses his narrative to the reader with what he did/didn't say to his son.

I realize that is not what he said to his son, or he might have, he didn't really say how he started the discussion. Just that his son using the phrase 'Oh God' might upset his grandparents. Odd that if he is atheist, why is 'Oh God' used in his household? As I stated, a parent can tell their own child anything they want to.

Just that his son using the phrase 'Oh God' might upset his grandparents. Odd that if he is atheist, why is 'Oh God' used in his household? I use "Good Lord!", "Oh Jesus!" "Oh God", etc. all the time. It's part of the English cultural vernacular. I don't limit myself from any language regardless of source. It certainly doesn't make me any less atheistic.

But why? Do you yell Oh Santa Claus? Good Easter Bunny? Sweet Leprechaun? To use the phrase still implies that there is someone out there, listening.

Do you yell Oh Santa Claus? Good Easter Bunny? Sweet Leprechaun? If you had grown up hearing those phrases you would yell them. Is there a god called "fiddlesticks" or "sugar"? Both words used instead of curse words. For the "love of mike" was another phrase. Who is mike? Oh and "jeese louise".

I wonder if they are used in an atheist household that has atheist parents and kids. Or does society corrupt the pure environment with evil religious sayings? You realize that to invoke those sayings is really asking for the help of that being, right? Dear God, help me. Jesus, come to me. Good Lord, what has happened?

Once again they're only used if you grow up hearing them used. It's kinda hard not to hear them since everybody and his brother, movies and every program on tv use the phrases. So to me they have about as much meaning as saying "sugarfoot" or "fiddlesticks". Let's not forget "for crying out loud".

today many post mourning 9/11. however few stand by their country. We watched as a Muslim was voted to the highest government position. We have watched as Muslims have been voted into congress, Mayors and city councils. They are taking our country down from the inside. We hear presidential candidate and their sheep say our president is trying to be a dictator. Then they tell us how they will make government bigger, taking over more aspects of our lives. We hear them call us racist, fascist,...

"We watched while boat loads of Muslims were imported, most put on tax payer support". And American citizens losing jobs so the Muslim owners of companies could give those jobs to those "refugees" who were supposed to be women and orphaned children...but as we saw....were overwhelmingly young healthy single males without families. Canada will not allow a single Muslim male without a family to immigrate into their country.
