Anyone else catch Sons of Perdition?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael Kjar Jun 3, 2011. 1 Reply

I love a good documentary so I was excited to see a commercial for a new doc called Sons of Perdition. I'm not sure if this was the first time it aired on television or not, but it came on last…Continue

"I was raised by parents who actually kept me out of science class all thru elementary school. I am just now learning all the stuff I should have learned as a child. I think this is sad. Just keep talking to him and educating him."

"Just give him the book and tell him your parents wouldn't understand and it would be best not to tell them about it. When I was 15 I was eager to do anything my parents didn't want me to do. Then again he could be like my sister…"

"I don't think you arguing with your parents will do anything here. It's your brother who needs to speak up. If he wants to become a doctor & wants to learn more about science then it's him who needs to convince your parents to let…"

"I like your mother's arbitrary age limit of 18.  Looks like your brother's gonna have a pretty awesome 18th birthday:  porn, cigarettes, Richard Dawkins books... it'll be a blast!"

"So sad!  You don't say how old your little brother is, so it's difficult to know what stage he's at.  I see this as just another case of child indoctrination, brain washing and a form of child abuse which should be…"

My parents are trying to discourage my little brother from learning about science

Family is a fickle thing sometimes. Being an out atheist, in what I assume to be my entire family, makes things a little difficult some days. My immediate family and I have the occasional argument or discussion but for the most part we all agree to try and be respectful. Tonight that all seems to have fallen apart and I'm a little torn on how to proceed. I just finished reading Dawkins newest book, "The Magic of Reality" and I decided that I wanted to share it with my younger brother since he…See More
