I love this whole comment So much. XD

As for the OP... I hope my children choose whatever path is best for them. My husband and I have VERY different religious beliefs. However, I'm a firm believer that religion is something that should be personal, so I don't expect anyone else to follow my beliefs unless it feels right for them.

No seed planted. You just made it obvious you can't answer important questions and can't debate worth shit.

If you believed that you had the answers to life and death would you not share it with EVERYONE that you know?! Especially your kids?

Dude, I'm a physicist. Sharing knowledge is my thing.

Knowledge is NOT equal to an archaic story, sorry to inform you.

What you believe might possibly be correct. It's...doubtful, but you never know. That's just the thing. You DONT know. It's not KNOWLEDGE.

I can't force my child to believe anything. But the scriptures that i put my faith in tells me to raise my child in the way he should go, so as long as they are young and living in my house then we will all go to church together as a family and i will do my best to inform them of my faith. What they do when they are adults is up to them.

My fiance and I are both atheists. I will cringe and be extremely disappointed if my kids end up being religious. That's like my worst nightmare.

I'm not religious. But if my child was then I would be okay with that. :)

I'll just reply to the OP:

I would never stop my child from pursuing or not pursuing religion.
