Future atheist?
A preschooler comes up to me carrying a small globe. She points to it and asks "What's this place?"

"That's Asia," I reply.

Pointing again, "and this?"

"That's Africa."

"Where do we live?"

I point to the U.S.

"That's small," she says.

She takes the globe back and starts to walk away, but then turns back to me and says, in a very serious tone, "The world is not flat."

I guess it's supposed to show inquisitiveness of preschooler in question, inquisitiveness that would lead to atheism but believers aren't dumb, just indoctrinated, so it don't really work.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Noting that the U.S. is small is a good sign. I've noticed that the religious tend to have a distorted view of how "big" things are on a grand scale. This is hopefully an indication of being able to think outside of insular bubbles.

Now hit her with the globe for taking it at face value. Tell her to do some fucking research first. Makes me sick.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Smart kid.

Funny thing is that many Americans think their country is YUGE!

USA = 9,525,067km² v. Australia = 7,692,024km²

And Canada is bigger than the US—despite many seppos disagreement. Big Grin

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
