Long time atheist, first time poster. My FIL keeps making comments that I find distasteful. First off, I'm an evolutionary biologist. So, you can probably imagine where I fall on the whole man evolved from apes 'debate'. My LOs nickname is Monkey. It came out of nowhere. It has nothing to do with the science behind it. I have a Darwin tattoo which would incite more flavorful comments if only he knew what it meant. Anyway, FIL has been staying with us and he's said on more than one occasion, "Now Teagan, you may be Monkey but the one thing you most certainly are not is related to apes." I'm not sure if he's kidding or if he's serious. We do not talk about religion with him as he's Born Again and we're just about as atheist as they come. How the man raised 4 atheists is beyond me. If he keeps making this comment once my LO is old enough to understand, I'm going to have to say something. How on Earth do I go about it?! I love the man to death but saying something like that in my house is akin to me yelling "And you know your Sky Daddy is bogus" after he says grace at his house.
