    My son sent me this from Yahoo, posted 3yrs. ago.

    The person stated "I don,t want any of my children to

    be punished by GOD".

    The best answer.

    Do not educate them, or expose them to critical thinking, logic

    science. Lie to them constantly about how the world works.

    Feed them a steady diet of mumbo jumbo dressed up like real

    knowledge- the jumbo jet in the whirlwind for example- and

    pretend that it is deep wisdom.

    Make them loathe their own natural bodies and functions.

    Convince them they are small and weak and worthless and

    need redemption. Tell them everything enjoyable is grievously

    wrong to even think about, and that their only fun should be

    grovelling to an invisible friend.

    Ensure that they resent anyone who is not like them in every

    way-skin color, nationality, political opinion but especially

    creed. Make such people out to be evil and vile and give them-

    impotent minorities all-the fictional power to somehow oppress

    and persecute the vast majority who do think like you.

    Teach them to laugh at and dismiss out of hand any faith

    but their own. Early-early mind you-make sure they are they

    are taught the difference between superstitious dealy error-

    that one raving lunatic in the desert told the truth about

    a vicious God who killed people, and divine eternal truth-

    that another raving lunatic in the desert told the truth

    about vicious God who killed pople.

    Instruct them with all severity and import to never question

    for themselves-but to seek answers only in one-just one-

    particular set of semi-literate bronze folk tales.

    Above all- and this cannot be overemphasized- make

    sure they cannot spell, use correst grammer, or

    understand basic English words.

    That should do the trick.

    Funny... I kind of think that would be the best advice on how to turn your child INTO an atheist.

    (I get that it was sarcastic, but that does seem to be what happens sometimes)

    I guess you are right, it could go both ways.

    Don't let them read the bible... Or learn anything about the history of either the bible or religion...

    Just tell them pretty fairy tales loosely based on the bible. And make your love for them conditional - they'd better love the bible, if they want you to love THEM...! (Not speaking literally, of course... )
