The contradiction in this
Not just because it’s a stupid question (it is a stupid question, and many of the other answers explain why the question is flawed)
What authority seeks, more than anything, is conformity within its ranks and across the board. They want everyone to see the world the same way they do, and they rely on their highly authoritarian followers to help make sure that this happens.
bothers me more than the Quora question. The Quora question doesn't assume objectivity. They're just asking a question, maybe even a facetious one.
Personally, I’d want to have kids who were well-rounded, intelligent, thoughtful, and curious about the world around them—someone who I can learn from. I’d much prefer that over kids who are ignorant, and academically poor parrots of my own (probably inaccurate) worldview.
Why is that being stated to someone who asked about convincing their child about God? It sounds like you are authoritatively telling someone else how they should think. If that's not the case, it's as much on the subject as if you stated that you liked chocolate and they liked strawberry.
