Fables should be taught as fables

Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child-mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be, in later-years, relieved of them. In fact, men will fight for a superstition quite as quickly as for a living truth – often more so; since a superstition is so intangible you can not get at it to refute it, but truth is a point of view, and so is changeable.
