When religion tells the child that G_d made man of clay, how long is he or she gong to live with that? He or she will live with it all of his or her life. But I guarantee you, it will be a negative influence and burden on their education from preschool to college, into the university and graduate school. They will be carrying a burden on the psyche, and would be greatly benefitted if we could relieve that burden, get that burden out of the psyche. Imam W. Deen Mohammed.
