I did not see this coming.
So I'm helping this 11 year old boy with his homework. I'm not related to this kid at all. He's the son of my son's current girl friend.

Suddenly the kid asks, "Do you believe in ghosts?"

"No."

"Do you believe in demons?"

"No."

"I do."

"OK!"

"If there are no demons there is no hell. If there is no hell there is no heaven."

"Whatever you say. I'm not going to discuss religion with you. Let's get back to the math."

"Why won't you discuss religion?"

"Because your mother will kill me. Let's get back to the math."

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice Is also great
And would suffice. -- Robert Frost

Yeah I had a neighbour banging my door down the other day cos my son informed her daughter that it was pointless taking cakes to church because Jesus ain't real.

The kid sounds as if he is well on his way to figuring it all out.

That kid made enough leaps in that short time for me to get the idea the little fucker is already on our side of the fence. Mommy and Daddy aren't gonna be happy.

Good call sticking to the math.

That kid is a future atheist. He isn't yet because he is young and mostly will believe what his parents say but his inquisitive mind and logic will most likely force that outcome eventually.

RE: I did not see this coming.
I really think it is cool you were like that, I have heard of many parents who have not wanted their kids either 'poisoned' by outside thoughts (so stuff against their religion) and or keeping them secular/free to make there own choice, and how people just go ahead and open their mouths. Even though we may not agree with indoctrination, it was great that you could respect that.

RE: I did not see this coming.
Last night my 7 year old son asked me some details about heaven (out of the blue as I was tucking him in to bed). I just said if you have questions about heaven you need to ask mom. She's xian so I just leave it at that. I hope I step dance around the question enough that he wonders why I do. Leading to more discussion later when he's a bit older. Plus my 10 year old daughter hears it to. To avoid fights I'm leaving it as is for now. But eventually I'll come completely clean spewing ANTI thiesm all the way.

Best not to step on the parent's toes.
I'd be pissed if someone tried to educate my kid about religion behind my back.
