- Religious belief appears to have negative influence on children’s altruism and judgments of others’ actions even as parents see them as ‘more empathetic’
Only furthers my belief that it should be a criminal offense to indoctrinate children with religious belief of any kind. Teach it all as history, plain and simple history until they are teenagers. THEN they take comparative religion/history of religion THEN give the men of the cloth their chance to convert them.
- Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
