Tweety Dawk has more to say:
Teach your child the evidence for your beliefs (if you can find any, and good luck with that). But please respect the innocence of childhood

Don’t worry about the evidence, Richard. That’s easily covered.
But when it comes to respecting the innocence of childhood, yes Richard, you need to do that. Look at it this way. When an old, perverted school teacher puts his hand down the shorts of a young student, is that respecting the innocence of childhood? Of course not. I’m sure you would agree. But when another old man, named Richard Dawkins, downplays the behavior of the teacher as harmless and mild, is that respecting the innocence of childhood?
