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.
