It is if The Flintstones is your idea of a documentary.
I'm assuming these kids are going to grow up, and then make their own decisions.
It's like saying i've brainwashed my kids to belive in Santa Claus, and they're never going to know any better.
There is a logical fallacy in your post.
Parents who tell kids about Santa do so knowing that the kids will stop believing in Santa and the parents will confirm that Santa is not real.
In my post, the parents are teaching the kids propaganda hoping that the kids don't grow out of it.
Do you think those parents are going to tell their kids "it was all a lie, just like Santa Claus"
Actually the opposite, the parents will try to confirm that what they were taught is real.

Anyway, I'm rather happy I had this as a child. It made the world a less scary place.

It's one thing to teach children the belief in god and religion. It's another thing to tell them not to trust scientists.
But it's alarming that people still believe dinosaurs lived with man and that the planet is 6,000 years old.
The fact that people still believe that makes me think that this form of brainwashing works.

When we have hundreds of years of scientific evidence from fossils that show dinosaurs lived millions of years ago and some stones, that could have easily been faked and even admitted being faked a few times, that show dinosaurs lived recently. What's the best explanation?
I found a video that shows kids being taught that dinosaurs coexisted with humans thousands of years ago, kids are being brainwashed to not accept science.
To me this kids are being brainwashed. Basically telling them not to trust science and that dinosaurs were alive a few thousand years ago is absurd.
The same thing goes for creationism - you sure as hell don't know HOW it happened in the past, but this book tells us that some entity just instantly created everything.
I am offended by one thing in the video - that the people are telling their kids that evolution doesn't exist somehow because they "don't believe" in it.
Anti-creationists make all kinds of claims about how the Bible is a fairy tale because it was written by man, and yet at the same time, believe lock, stock, and barrel that science is nothing other than strict fact, when it too, was researched and recorded by who? oh yeah, man.
