my mother was raised mennonite, and is currently a very devout christian. she passed down her religion to me obviously and it wasn't until recently that i started to doubt, and am pretty convinced that there is no god. the other day we were over at my mothers house and my oldest was talking about learning evolution in school. he started asking me how the earth was made. my mother jumped in and told him god, of course.
now, i have no problem with my mom taking my kids to church occasionally, but when it comes to evolution and how the earth was made, i prefer to teach my kids the facts-not religion. should i say something to my mother, or should i let it slide since it's only been the one time? do you think it's harmless since he is learning evolution in school?
please i do not want to hear anybody trying to convince me to come back to god, just answers to my questions, thank you!! :)
