How about getting a copy of "The Magic of Reality" and reading a bit of it to your kids every night. Teach them these stories are exactly that! Stories. And there are other stories, better stories, out there.

Agree! I finished reading The Magic of Reality yesterday (LOVED IT! - Thank you for writing the book Prof. Dawkins) and returned it to the library and now am going to buy the book for my children to read it by themselves when they can read. Some of the myths in the book were exactly what I was told growing up! As a child I blindly believed whatever my parents told me about certain things that I don't understand (earthquake, sleep paralysis, etc). Not that they are intentionally tried to lie to me but they themselves believed that the myths are true!
