When dealing with children we tell them about Santa, the Easter Bunny, and even the boogey man. We also tell them aboug God and the Devil. The only thing we have written proof of is St. Nick. So why do we tell our children about false entities, and then crush their childhood one by one as they learn that they don't believe in certain things.  Yet....we hold on to God and the Devil.  Why do we hold on to that? Theres not scientific proof any of this exsists. Granted, that's just faith, but how come we don't put faith in the boogey man?
