Subject: RE: BS: Religious freedom, or murder?
with no explanation of how any of it might be possible

Bill:

I am sure such explanations are available. I am equally sure they would not be comprehensible to you, because of a fundamental assumption about materiality and the nature of the being.

Wes, Mick: I meant in no way to imply there should be some authority checking on how information is transmitted to the young. I live, unfortunately for me, in a world where individuals use their innate sense of ethics to choose right action, in the very way Mick describes that majority of decent folks. I think part of the culture's tragic aberration is born and nurtured in the pit of enforced illogic, where a young person is taught by force to accept things he cannot see, sense, measure or experience. That's where the risk opens up of generating a damaged mind (in a strict sense) operating on fixed ideas, unable to adapt to new conditions.

A loving and supportive environment which encourages dialogue, exploration, questions and discovery will produce a brighter, better child -- in general -- no matter which religion informs it.

(I know that is a sweeping generality. Ok, ok....!)
