How did this error even get pass the editors? Surely someone would have said "religion is touchy and it has of nut jobs, so lets make absolutely sure that our head line will not be seen in the wrong way".
The need for small bite sized head line's seems to ruin the minds of every newspaper...

For some, apparently,'god' means something as vague as nature or the sum of all things. One would hope that any education system would result in students who realise that there's no evidence that a prophet was sent to Earth and the patent absurdities of Abrahamic religions.

I would also hope that most children would learn only to believe anything to the extent the belief can be justified by reason and evidence. Intelligent and well-educated people should realise beliefs need to be rational and held only to a degree. Beliefs should never be religious or absolute.

Any person with a brain and eyes knows that there is a God who created everything in existence, it is the Atheist that wants people to accept his understanding of life, which is a lie, just as his father Satan the Devil wants told.
John 8:44

You would do much better to teach there is no Santa Clause or Tooth Fairy or Easter Bunny, and teach your children that Satan the Devil is behind these lies and his people love his favorite day... Halloween. The established day of worship for witches and warlocks and their children.

Anyone who celebrates Halloween is definitely alienated from Jehovah God and his reigning King Jesus.

People with brain and eyes demand evidence and you religious liars can't do it.

And you've failed to do it since the beginning of recorded history.

The only reason people still talk to you is because religion infects families and the family becomes the carrier of the illness.

Families are more resilient to logic / reason because of their emotional component.

Religion has adapted itself to involve itself with life / family activities such as marriage, death, birth - because this is an easy route into the family unit where the religious mental illness can thrive further without question.
