Edited* Agnostics and Athiests, do you teach your children bible stories?

Obviously not as fact. I was raised Methodist and love many bible stories, Noah, David and Goliath, the wise king who threatened to cut the baby in 1/2. All of the stories still have great messages, even without believing in God.








Will you introduce bible stories in the same way as we learned Greek mythology and Asepos(?) fables?



Edit* For those who won't, why not? Do you read other fairy tales?

We haven't really addressed the idea of religion at all in our house (I was raised non-religious and DH catholic, but now he's agnostic and I'm atheist), but we have this book of Christmas stories and my five year old really loves the baby Jesus story in it...
I think he just likes the pictures, but I'm sure questions will arise eventually. I'll probably just tell him htat some people believe it's true and some don't.
Let him decide for himself.

cant teach what I never really learned about.  Thats what they have Grandma (MIL) for.  I did tell her that our dog that died was called up by Jesus because he wanted a dog to play with.  When they were small, i would tell them that thunder was God playing drums and lightning was God taking pictures.  Im a believer in a higher power but just not so fully involved in it that is all I believe in.

I am heathen and not yet. He takes most of what I say as fact and I am careful to try and not influence him in anyway, religiously
