Since you cannot prove non-existence, you must also accept on blind that God does not exist, no?<quoted text>
Religion teaches us to be satisfied with nonanswers and with lies. It expects, nay DEMANDS that we throw critical thinking to the wind and accept things on "blind faith".
I'm not arguing for religion, I'm arguing parental rights and the definition of child abuse.It is divisive, hate-filled and is single-handedly responsible for the wholesale slaughter of countless men, women, children and animals. It teaches that it is fine to destroy the planet because, after all we won't be here much longer. It offers solace in time of sorrow, but that solace is fake and hollow.
Shall I go on preaching the "virtues" of religion?
Because you cannot prove (to any standard of logic, let alone due process) that those parents are doing anything wrong. Would you like someone defining what you teach your child as abuse without having to prove it?So you tell me... Why is it NOT abuse?
Nice try, but no, that's what the SCHOOL teaches. You were seeking to control what the PARENTS teach their child. Try again.Oh, and they already DO want to, and in some states DO control it. By teaching "creationism" in the classroom (I'm looking at you Kansas).
