It doesn't even matter whether the parents themselves are married or not, or weather that particular child is raised with God in their lives; the waning of marriage and faith effects everyone. Now, these aren't the only factors: over-population, television, celebrities, suburban sprawl... all of them are taking our lives further and further from the conditions that our minds have evolved to deal with.Star Dust said:No, poor parenting is causing more and more unbalanced minds. Churches and marriages aren't necessary. Kids can grow up with balanced minds and good parents that aren't married and do not go to church. The last thing anybody needs is old traditions and institutions for the sake of old traditions and institutions. The last thing anybody needs is more irrationality.
Our (and again, by "our" I mean "your") minds are wired for faith: it fills a need within us, it gives us a "high". It's likely this evolved as a control mechanism.
It doesn't even really matter what is beleived in; the religeous experiance is a vital part of being human. With it gone, our (your) minds become imbalanced and violent. You go into a "rogue" state of mind, simmilar to how lions go insane separated from a pride.
