Religion, Politics, and Other Topics That Should Not Be Discussed at Parties
I want them to be as smart as Dale McGowan’s kids. Keep in mind that the girl telling the story is six years old.
Holy incredibleness! Kids as young as these two, asking the kind of questions I myself asked. Where did they get so precocious? So inquisitive? So intelligent that they knew what questions to ask?
I question the existence of god every day, but I wasn’t able to recognize the possibility that there was no god until a few years ago.
I’m 40, and I’d like to think that I’ve asked all the questions there are to ask. As an adult, you learn by asking questions, and the same for kids, but I would never expect a 6-year-old to understand the need for this kind of information. Wow!
On another note, MSNBC.com is taking a survey regarding the display of “In God We Trust” on money. Or, for that matter, do we need to include “one nation, under God” in the pledge of allegiance.
As a Canadian Citizen who has lived in the US for over 30 years, I was a little hesitant to recite the pledge based on my citizenship. I never had a problem with God at the time, but with the idea that non-Americans were being forced to recite the Pledge in school. I’m not officially American, but I consider myself (in most respects), to be American;. I am documented (since 1977), pay American taxes, and buy American stuff.
But I can’t comply with American churches, or any churches for that matter.
This is a show-me society, if I’m to recognize ‘god’, show me he exists.
