    This! I'll obviously make MY beliefs clear but leave him open to choose whatever.

    Same as Bubmum. I don't plan on explaining religion to my kids unless they ask. If or when they do, I will explain to them the reasons I do not believe and the reasons some people do and ask them what they think. I do admit I hope they don't choose to follow a religion.

    Is there a way to avoid getting the updates for this thread? I only commented because of the original post and have no interest in yet another atheist v religion debate. I have my belief and am entitled to post on here what it is (as is everyone else). I do not disrespect people who believe in another deity or believe in no deity, but also expect the same back. Which is not happening on this thread, from either direction really.
    If a mod could tell me how to unsubscribe that would be great as I've tried and am still getting updates. Thanks hope you all have a great weekend.

    If you're genuinely interested I'd recommend a book by Daniel Dennett called Breaking the Spell:
