I'm years away from marriage and starting a family but I have this one question: if one set of parents brings up their kids brainwashed with a religion, and another set of atheist parents does the same but teaches evolution, then are the latter parents just as bad hijacking their kids' mind? Ideally, kids should grow up and make their own choice once they reach a certain age, but then again religious memes are like viruses, and a mild jab of critical thinking or teaching them evolution would help protect them in case some nutter or group comes along and takes advantage of them. What do you think?
Huge difference between religion which is based on faith and evolution which is based on overwhelming evidence.
I am teaching my kids about evolution - just as I teach them about gravity.
