    I remember when I first saw this video, got it saved somewhere in my computer, absolutely true. Seeing my 3 year old niece being forced to grow into the Jehovah Witness organization really saddens me as i was forced into it as well, it only brought me guilt, depression and made me drift apart from my family when I slowly drifted towards the truth about God and religion. To this day, I'm seen as the outsider of the family as everyone else is stuck in their own little worlds. Thank you for posting this for others to see Cohen

    It's a choice for schools to be 'neutral' in the aspect of what students learn. We live in a society that is concerned if we remove one. A large group of people would be upset and riot, or something.

    Church and state should be completely separate. Religion should not be taught in schools.

    Then again you do have religious schools here in America like St. Mary's Elementary School (for example, and yes a public school). First, you would have to make all religious schools private, then you can consider not teaching creationism at least in public schools.

    No, I think the right thing to do is to offer both arguments in unbiased means and let kids make their own call.

    Generally, kids can't properly make their own decisions until they are about 10. Wouldn't it be fair to children to wait until an age where they can make their own choices, give examples of all religion (not just the one the parents believe in) and atheism and let them choose what they want to believe in?

    What's wrong with this niggas face

    On a legit note though, he can't say teaching kids that the earth is only 6000 years old is a bad thing. He himself is contradicting his own belief that we should teach kids reality. Well here's a reality check, nobody knows how the universe was created. No one knows the reality of our origin. He wants people to stop teaching kids their beliefs and start teaching kids his beliefs. See the problem here?

    I agree, where I live, religion is heavily forced from a young age and it's a real turn-off, lots of young people don't like it. In secondary/middle school, kids should be introduced to religions and be allowed to make their own choices.

    His 'belief' is based on scientific fact. Religious beliefs are just that, beliefs.

    I think religions should be studied in schools instead of only 1 religion being taught to the students.

    I agree that taking advantage of stupid young minds is child abuse too.
