"John, Brilliantly and succinctly put and a dilemma for many of us.  The short answer is of course not to programme your kids in the first place – but that is not so easy in the real world. I am in an almost identical situation to you but…"

About Me:
I thoroughly enjoy THINKING! Love open discussion, especially with those who disagree with me. All I ask is A) To be civil, B) To have a REASON why you believe what you believe, & C) To allow all parties equal time for discussion. I love the quote, "If 2 people in a business always agree, 1 of them isn't necessary!"
Relationship Status
Why are you here?
To broaden my mind with RATIONAL people who haven't turned their back on logic and reasoning!

"People will then often say, 'But surely it's better to remain an Agnostic, just in case?' This, to me, suggests such a level of silliness and muddle that I usually edge out of the conversation, rather than get sucked into it. (If it turns out that I've been wrong all along, and there is in fact a god, and if it further turned out that this kind of legalistic, cross-your-fingers-behind-your-back, Clintonian hair-splitting impressed him, then I think I would choose not to worship him anyway.)"
