    When I have children I will treat them like people. I will try and give them what they need to succeed in life.

    How does belief in a sky daddy change anything?

    There you go. I’ve chilled :-)

    I sometimes let studies inform my parenting, if I think they are valid.

    An example would be that kids who breastfeed longer have (on average) slightly higher IQs. People used to think that this was because of the nutrition of the milk, but recent studies have shown it's actually the physical contact that stimulates neuron connectivity. So we make sure our daughter has lots of physical contact, holding, playing etc. and she seems a happy and bright toddler

    Number one lesson would be that religion has false teachings and then let them know the following.

    Know the truth. Christians have raped beaten & killed their wives & got away with it because of the bible. http://www.alternet.org/reproductivejustice/124174...

    In many states it was still legal to rape your wife until the 1970's.

    The meaning of an Atheist is without (A) Theos Greek for utterances or sayings. Theist comes from the word Theos. We are all atheist if we do not believe in one another’s utterances.

    The word god comes from the German word Godan/Gotten which comes from the Norse male myth deity Wotan/Odin.

    All the world’s religions are made from mythology and that is a fact. The people mostly men ministering these religions are liars or very much uninformed. Dozens of Scholars confirm the fact that all these religions are based on made up mythological stories. In fact evil is written within all these man made religions but they deceive you by expecting you to have the little girl/boy mind and not question what all is in these books. Now that there is the internet we can pull up information about what is in all these religions. Take advantage of the last 200 years of real scholarly research during the age of enlightenment. There is a lot of history that surrounds all the religions that exist outside of what is written in the religious text. Here is some not so nice things the myth Jesus & new & old testament says.

    Matthew 10:34. "Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.

    "And that servant [slave], which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes." (Luke 12:47) He never denounced servitude, incorporating the master-slave relationship into many of his parables.

    By the way the word Lord comes from Europe. A Lord was a land owner. You could not leave the Lord (land owner) without his permission. If you did you would be captured/ punished or killed by the Lord…….Look up the futile system in Europe. Why do you think our relatives left Europe? It is pure ignorance to say Jesus is Lord………

    "If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." (Luke 14:26)

    The burning of unbelievers during the Inquisition was based on the words of Jesus: "If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned." (John 15:6)

    When one of his disciples requested time off for his father's funeral, Jesus rebuked him: "Let the dead bury their dead." (Matthew 8:22)

    "Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing. But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go." (Judges 19:24-25)

    How is the babble bible much different from Islam?

    "Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." (I Timothy 2:11-14

    Subjection: Bring, make under domination or control, esp. by conquest.

    There is a damn good reason why there is a separation from religion & state. Women did not get the right to vote until the 1920's because of the cruel/misogynistic bible.

    Google Hitler was Catholic & the Vatican & a few Jews & Muslims helped the Nazis.....

    & Google (You tube) " Did the Vatican Create Islam" ......

    Suggested reading: "Christ Conspiracy the Greatest Story Ever Sold." It explains the history & mythology behind the Judeo/Christian & Islam which followed after (Vatican helped created Islam)

    Here is another reason I left religion click on link below

    Google www.truth be known & "The Founding Fathers Were Not Christian"

    The most stringent controls on speech in the colonial period were controls that outlawed or otherwise censored speech that was considered blasphemous in a religious sense. A 1646 Massachusetts law, for example, punished persons who denied the immortality of the soul. In 1612, a Virginia governor declared the death penalty for a person that denied the Trinity under Virginia's Laws Divine, Moral and Martial, which also outlawed blasphemy, speaking badly of ministers and royalty, and "disgraceful word.

    I raise my daughter to be a good honest person. She can make up her mind on religion later when she's older.

    I don't consult psychologists, but I have read up on parenting in general.

    Reveal to all, do you treat your children based on information given by men? Claiming it is holy?

    You mustn't know much about psychology if you have to ask this question. Most of it is just common sense. We use it all the time without realizing it anyway...xoxo.

    I look at all the available information, and then make my own rational decisions.

    Peace.

    If I were Christian, I wouldn't need health insurance. Just pray for my kid's health, ok?

    Are you serious? Raise them to be successful in society.
