Raising Critical Thinkers

The videos from Freethought Festival are out! Currently, this video from Dale McGowan has the fewest hits, which is a shame. It’s a wonderful talk on raising–not atheists–but real freethinkers, willing and able to grapple with all sorts of ideas.

This is a must-see for anyone who has a chance to influence kids.

    Indeed, a valuable lesson every parent should see.

    The joyce meyers section was scary. I’m with the guy yelling, “What!”. It’s quite possible that raising someone religious is really hard (impossible?) to do if they are also permitted to think. So many of the religious ideas are delusional; think about them as a kid and the game is over.

    His overall direction is great. I’ve made it a point, however, to let my son know that the supernatural(magic) is never the actual mechanism for anything.
