Atheist Parents

Being an atheist in a religious culture is a challenging situation and being an atheist parent is an even more daunting position for one to be in. Have you ever asked yourself how you can be an atheist parent?

Chiz, I find that teaching your kids to question everything, to be intelligent and to research, and to open them to all possibilities is the best avenue. Let them decide on their own, based on their experiences and their information.

That said, I don't envy the road ahead if you do have kids in that situation. It would be very difficult.

I do not have children, but my wife and I are planning on it in the future. She believes in god and is adamant on sending our children to church for the "social" benefits.

I am, obviously, opposed to this, but how can I get around it without destroying our marriage? Hopefully, I'll figure it out before I hit that juncture.

We've found the Parenting Beyond Belief book to be helpful.

I've got it pretty easy when it comes to religion and kids. She is agnostic, I am atheist, and we're keeping it simple. We will show them why the atheist way makes the most sense, but in the end let them decide. My wife and I are 4 weeks pregnant (just found out the other day), and anything else would be just plain cruel and stupid.
