The Atheist Kid's Bible

This is a plug, but a relevant one. (Moderator, please strike me down if I'm totally out of order!).

Some time ago I wrote a book for my kids, What I'll Tell Tom - now subtitled the Atheist Kid's Bible. I quite liked the Bible as a kid, but didn't believe all the God stuff. I wanted my kids to have a book that told them where we came from and threw in a bit of moral philosophy too. In the book I also briefly describe the major world faiths and tell them it's fun to debate with others who have different views - as this forum demonstrates Smiling

I'm interested in how others encourage their kids to interact with those with different beliefs - do any atheist parents out there send their kids to religious schools or youth groups? Do any religious parents encourage their kids to enter the atheist vs theist debates?

Here's a link to a fledgeling blog and details of the book if you're interested... telltom.wordpress.com/

Cheers,

BH

Nice one Martin...

 

 

This seems a good idea to me, given a focus on open enquiry and a refusal to be bullied into accepting puerile arguments on the basis of threats of physical violence.
