Deception

Consuming a child’s youth with devotional service, is heartbreaking.

  1. I think there is importance in expressing reasonable doubt, however, do we hold this same standard to other issues of which we are “mostly” convinced of? Especially within the scientific education community, many theories that we cannot possibly be 100 percent sure about, but are the most likely, are taught to children as truth. I do not think that when there is reasonable evidence, such as the theory of evolution, that this is wrong to teach children, as long as there is invitation and strong encouragement to investigate it for themselves. If one was seriously doubting a view and the evidence seemed severely lacking, I agree that it is wrong. But I think that confidence and doubts are perhaps not entirely polar opposites, and it’s a reality that at some point both atheists and theists do doubt their convictions. After all, why would we have the desire to seek out more evidence if we didn’t? 🙂
