Do some people not have a conscience when it comes to passing on beliefs to their children?

A woman I know once made her living as a "psychic" where she channeled the past lives (as in reincarnation) of her clients.

She has now turned back to her Mormon beliefs and is teaching her child that we have 2 lives, one now, and the other one after resurrection.

I think most people pass on their beliefs to their children which is why religions continue to be a thing. Personally, I think it would make more sense to pass on critical thinking skills.

I think it is important to distinguish between different ways of thinking:

1. Scientific facts - using logic, reasoning, measurement of the material world.
2. Belief - filling in the gaps where science has not yet figured out.

I think there is room for both in our world.

I think there are more than two ways of thinking in the world.

Elder Berry - Do you care to elaborate on the different ways other than I mentioned?

The Mormon child indoctrination program is abuse. Later on, the child will have to change with the church. Doctrine changes, faster and faster now. How long was "Mormon" a bad word? I remember believers posting online that they were suddenly offended by the word. Now that's over. What next?

Children are being programmed for a lifetime of abject obedience. Their cosmologies will be controlled from Mormon headquarters. What they call belief has no conscience.

It uses spiritual eyes to see what is right.
