My son debates the existence of God at school

School started back for my fourth grader last week, and I was taken aback when he came home and told me about a little playground debate he had with his classmates about the existence or nonexistence of God.

My son knows that I'm an atheist, while his mother is a God believer. We've had several, mostly, civil debates about God and religion, but I have never forced my views upon my children. And besides taking them to church on occasion, my wife doesn't push her beliefs onto them…
