David Hayward probably doesn’t realize it, but he just created a new atheist bumper sticker:
It’s mindboggling to me why so many churches would stifle questioning and doubt, especially with children. To simply “have faith” or to suggest that “god did it” when it was really a natural process is a copout. If Christianity was valid, then questions would only strengthen someone’s faith… right? Too bad for churches, when reality meets religion, religion always loses.
Which is why we have to encourage children to ask questions, even when we don’t always have the answers.
