    1. Oh now then, Sadje’s answer has reminds me of this:
      Three nuns went to heaven, when they reached the pearly gates. St. Peter was there to greet them. St. Peter said to the nuns “Before you can enter you each have to answer one question correctly.”
      So, St. Peter goes to the first nun and asked “Who was the first man God had created”.
      The first nun looked at St. Peter and said “Oh, that’s easy, Adam”..
      The trumpets sounded, the gates open and St. Peter said “You may enter”. ๐Ÿ˜‡
      Then St. Peter goes to the second nun and asked “Who was the first woman God had created”.
      The second nun looks at St. Peter and said “Oh, that’s easy, Eve”.
      The trumpets sounded, the gates open and St. Peter said “You may enter”. ๐Ÿ˜‡
      Then St. Peter goes to the third nun and asked “What were the first words Eve said to Adam”.
      The third woman starts thinking then looked at St. Peter and said “Oh, that’s a hard one”.
      The trumpets sounded, the gates open and St. Peter said “You may enter”… ๐Ÿ˜‡

  2. Well, that’s certainly an argument in favor of the US position of not allowing religion to be taught in government-funded schools. We will never wake up to that question.

    1. Does anything belong in religious education? Religion is for brainwashing, not education.. Religion is for college or university, when a person is strong enough in themselves to not be influenced by unthinking authoritarians.
      Unless, of course, the purpose of such education is about arming the child against prosthelyzation, and believing in fables. Once they reach adulthood, they they can choose to believe anything they want.

      1. That’s a pretty enlightened way of doing things, as long as they were not doing it to ridicule the other religions, and as long as all religions were represented.
        The biggest question, though, is whether they teach the children they do not have to believe anything if they do not want to. That was one of the biggest revelations in my
        life, when I found out god was not mandatory. At first,as a child, the authorities put the fear of hell into me, telling me I was going to burn for eternity. Then they told me god was a loving god, kind to a fault. How is a child supposed to put that contradiction together, love and kindness with condemning living beings to a eternity of pain. I lived with that contradiction for many years. He would only love you as long as you believed in him. My mind was torn apart, but I never keyed into the corollary condition, that if you stopped believing the contradiction went away.
        If someone had told me when I was young that I could disbelieve my life, I am certain, kcould have (not would have, but could have) been different. I would have been saved from spiritual anguish on top of the physical and mental abuse had to live through. Because one constant thought in my life was, How could a loving god allow my father to cause me so much pain and terror. I was spiritually torn. I prayed and prayed for an answer, and never got one.
        I cannot remember when I first heard the word atheist, but it was a life saver.
        Years later this situation prompted me to write the line: The error in terror is the care in scare. They summed up my childhood in a nutshell.

      2. Not sure why you are giggling, but the name is raw’ god. No capitals. At one time I believed there was no god, but that we might be able to create one. So I was a god-in-training. Then I came to the realization no god would ever be needed. We can each be our own governers, if only we would learn to be responsible for our thoughts and actions. Right now, we are prevented from this by constantly be told what to do and how to live, by lieing leaders who pretend to know what is best for everyone, but really all they want is what is best for themselves, no matter the cost to others.
