Regarding the dinosaur conundrum. It isn't child abuse to tell fairy stories. Santa Claus and the tooth fairy were a feature of our house.

Perpetuating the myth into adulthood such as creationism, rising from the dead, being sinners unless you bow to those representing a fictitious character. ...

That's different.   Much different. ....
