Yes perhaps I should be clearer. I think I got a bit muddled because at first I was referring to the current syllabus which is pretty much teaching what people believe, in which case learning that some people don't believe any of it is also important.he_who_is_nobody said:Do you actually mean atheism or secular humanism? If a world’s religion class were taught correctly, students would learn about Buddhism and how some sects of Buddhism are atheistic, thus they are learning about atheism. Students might also learn about shamanism or ancestor worship, which are also atheistic religions. There appears to be a large movement of Secular Jews as well, who follow the traditional customs, but do not believe in a god (some Cultural Catholics are following this as well). Somehow, I do not think you mean any of these when you talk about teaching children about atheism. It seems like you mean secular humanism when you were talking about teaching students about atheism.
