Teaching Creationism is Child Abuse.

Yeah I know it’s not quite in the same league as bashing a baby to death but it’s still child abuse.

    I think that this post does disservice to this website. This is an anti religion post, that aims to rob children of a belief and hope for a better, and higher purpose in life, and all because of scientific hubris. I think he would also like to take away Christmas, and the easter bunny, and and any good belief a child may have, that may be protective, and helpful, because they are not one of his accepted facts. Robbing a child of faith and hope is child abuse.

      I posted this because I agree with what he says. Teaching children to believe in magical non-existent gods is child abuse. When the answer to every question about the universe and nature is ‘god did it’, a child’s natural curiosity is stunted and becomes unquestioning acceptance of dogma (which is what religious zealots want all along), this of course makes it much easier to control children and mould them into the next generation of unquestioning religious zealots.

    What a site if it equates values-based religious tuition (even a little bit) with child abuse. Ugh. Moreover that people with any religious belief are unquestioning religious zealots. Small minded much huh, The most small-minded are those with clear anti prejudices as I’ve read on here.

      IMO you should be ashamed on behalf of all the children who have suffered, and died, at the hands of real child abusers, who would otherwise be alive and attending any school. I attended religious schools… one advantage it’s given me is the ability to be open-minded and to have an open mind. So why should I tolerate reading bunkum nonsense…. blanket statements such as “teaching children to believe in magical non-existent gods is child abuse”. You need to get out and see the real world and/or or deal with your personal hatred/issues if you truly believe that. Newsflash – people are entitled to believe what they wish. Children are open to some form of spiritual tuition – it does them no life-long harm, probably quite the reverse – where else can they learn some basic values – then they grow up and decide what they like. Teaching them to grow up and “hate” others’ right to beliefs like you clearly demonstrate here – is preferable huh. Don’t spread your obvious prejudices – nay hatred – of anyone with any form of Christian belief. Child abuse indeed. Shame on you.

        The basic reasoning behind this post is simply that in the entire history of the human race no evidence has ever been found to support claims that the world was created around 6000 years ago by a god, compared to an ever growing mountain of scientific evidence that backs up the evolution theory. Therefore teaching children that the first is the absolute truth and the latter is not, is the absolute height of dishonesty and a form of mental abuse.

      What’s the matter Helen, can’t accept that other people might have a different world view to yours? Now who’s the small-minded, judgemental bigot? Yes adults have a right to believe whatever they want, no matter how ridiculous or illogical it is. Seems you don’t practice what you preach, you seek to force your opinions on me and at the same time deny my right to my own.
