Best way to Stop your child from becoming an Atheist


how-to-stop-your-child-becoming-an-atheist

Hahaha.. Religion is a disease that we need to get rid of coz, it makes animals out of men. Just think for once, if there was no religion there would never have been any riots at godhra, in 1983 or no partition. Hatred would just vanish. I dream of such a world, and so I initiate the change from myself. I reject all religions but believe in god. Not in some mythical figure but god for me is all of our collective conscious.

    True. Religion has always been a problem but the thing is that the elders influence the child’s mind and thereby impose their way of thinking on the child which is certainly not good as the child is protected from other schools of though. What can be done to help the child grow?

    The parents can allow the child to discover things for themselves. I’ll give you an example. I for long believed in god but then as I grew older, I started questioning things. And soon I no longer believed in a God. One day my mom asked me why I didn’t believe in God and my reply to her was a quote from the movie Angels and Demons “I’m an academic. My mind tells me I will never understand God. I’m not meant to. Faith is a gift that I have yet to receive.” So that’s how it goes. I feel that education plays a very important part in it.

      Definitely. Its called a Cognitive bubble. And it is this ability to think outside of what you have been taught to think is what separates free thinkers from the rest of the crowd.

    Religion is the opiate of the masses – Karl Marx.

    I am not supporting his other ideas, but the truth in this statement is striking. It is also amusing to note that Capitalism and Church go hand in hand, so do communism and atheism. I think we need to weed out what we like from everything.

      hmm in a way your are right. Capitalism and Church do go hand in hand. 

      And yeah, we should weed out what we like. For instance even Baba Ramdev had some positive points 😀

    I cannot resist quoting Karl Marx here 😀 : “Religion is… the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet won through to himself, or has already lost himself again….This state and this society produce religion, which is an inverted consciousness of the world, because they are an inverted world….It is the fantastic realization of the human essence since the human essence has not acquired any true reality….Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.”

      Thanks for the amazing quote and yes, Karl max is absolutely right. Religion is the sign of the oppressed

    I very much agree with Aditya, because I myself believe in God, as in the energy that is present in Nature and all Natural things……. and Religion has made humans hate each other for the mere gain of a few who mint money out of it……… Unless we educate our Generation we will be lost in a world of fanatics……

    hmmm.. its hard to ignore good side of religion..

    basic sense of equity and justice which evolved out of various religions has helped out this world in having a system .

    Bad aspects should be condemned but not the religion !

    • http://www.adityakumarnayak.com Aditya Kumar Nayak

      the concept of religion when it started was good but look whats it turned into today?

      Equity and justice? Dalits are still not allowed into most of our temples completely. (eg. puri) Women are kept in purdah or nikab, in the name of religion. Religion is used as a tool to suppress the weak.

        Aditya let poltics and religion be separate points, no religion teaches hatred.

        Its politics played by men in power  that  should be condemned.

        ISLAM : “All creation is the family of God ,and of all creation the most beloved of God is he who does most good to his family”

        “God will not be merciful to him who is not merciful to men”

        Hinduism :In Hindu jurisprudence no one could be above law of the land even the King that remarks principles of equality before law !

        I hope you have researched well about  religions before targeting them as root cause of problems mentioned !

          Putting the blame on politics is just a way to shift the blame for the rot that is religion.

          “No religion teaches hatred”

          I wish that was true. :)

    Hey,

    I’m sorry, but I disagree.I believe that science and religion can go hand in hand.No religion in its true sense upholds violence or injustice.Every religion enjoins upon its followers peace,tolerance and virtue.People using the name of religion for personal gains are not the true representatives of the religion he follws.

    Besides,the Qura’n which is believed to have been revealed more than 1400 years ago,described the formation of the fetus,the sun and moon following orbits,formation of clouds and rain,the germination of plants etc.I don’t know about other religions, but I believe religion and science can go hand in hand if we follow it in its true sense without the additions and manipulations of so-called religious heads or scholars

      The point I tried to raise through this post was that Religions try to force us to close our minds and are against free thinking.

      Science is just one area. I agree that religion and science ‘can’ go hand in hand but do they? Although I agree that India is an exception where science was promoted within the vedic system.

    I agree.

    The religion is a way of life, it can be followed in your personal life if you don’t have a self thinking process. It is true that today there are many people who don’t have a thinking of themselves they should refers to religion, others who have an opinion on every thing can leave the religion aside but they should definitely read books of that religion and think over the facts mentioned there. Because you should only protest if you know the facts. The facts in all the religion is almost same with some traditional differences as to how to wear clothes this and that, this does’nt make them different it only shows that there are 1000’s of good ways to live life. You can choose one of them or can develop your own new way. Today at least for Indians and i am sure many others whose countries are not good, this covers whole world because no country is good today, the only religion to be followed in social life is patriotism and love, respect for fellow beings. And become one.
