comment As an atheist, how should I explain theism to my children?
@CortAmmon, yep - I usually say that science is my religion. That's what I believe in: cold hard facts, and peer-reviewed theories. Alas, there's little in the way of empathy and social benevolence in that, but it's useful for calling BS on the claims of crackpots (like homeopathy).

comment How to explain Paris terrorist attack to primary school age children?
@DainDwarf the way I see it, it's a huge topic to open up. It's too complex for giving a short surface explanation, because on the surface it just doesn't make sense - not even to adults! So an explanation has to be deeper, and that's not a part of this world I'd like to show a pre- or primary-schooler. Let them be innocent as long as possible... I guess the challenge is how can terrorism be explained simply and briefly? Unfortunately, it's not possible to make it seem not dangerous.
