“When we reach the age of 12, we develop abstract thinking, logic and the ability to reason. We may start to question our preconceived notions of God, and the answers are a click away – on our tablet or laptop. This is the biggest threat to religion and a major reason why it's struggling.”

    And it is the single biggest reason why I believe that early childhood religious education is tantamount to child abuse!!!

    it’s amazing to me that so many parents are compelled to

    deal with a child’s questions by feeding them answers that are

    total baloney. small people have no serious discernment to

    separate true from false…..and hence become stuck with

    faulty mental building blocks in interpreting their world.

    i have to agree with you: it IS an insideous form of abuse,

    that may scar them for life.

    You have to be a low down, dirty, rotten, scum, to lie to a child. There is just no two ways about it. Omit to give them details they might not understand at the age they are, or share only age appropriate information? Fine! But outright lie to a child and you set the worst precedent. Only the ugliest of wretched animal would lie to a child.

    Anyone who tells a child that a supernatural deity is mystically hovering over their existence and monitoring their every thought is a sick sick individual.
