^ I guess I don't understand the answer. Are you going to teach your children not to steal before or after they can fully understand all the concepts involved?

No, I actually went back to before either one understands that stealing is wrong. Let me clarify. Let's say there are two people that don't understand why stealing is bad. You are going to teach them, and they are slow learners. To the one person you are going to tell him, from the beginning, that stealing is bad and he is going to believe it and act accordingly. To the other one you are not. Basically, one you are teaching from the bottom up and the other one you're teaching from the top down.Neither. This looks very much like a false dichotomy.
Which way would you teach your children?
^ That does not answer the question.
But let's say you wanted to teach your child the lesson that it is wise to listen to you? How would you do this?
I wouldn't stop there. I would continually be involved until s/he was capable of understanding. I wouldn't just give him/her the instructions and just assume that s/he will eventually get it.
But can I ask - in what way is 'do it like this, and accept it because I say so' in any form or fashion a manner of teaching something? The only lesson that I can see from that is obey me. And I think you agree that isn't the most useful lesson in and of itself.
6 + 7 = 13. Trust me. Have faith that the answer is correct. That doesn't teach anyone anything about addition. Nothing.
On that front though, if you believed the population of your city was alive, with hopes and dreams... and you loved them, and it was important to you that they choose to worship you. How would you go about ensuring that they know you are real, can't misinterpret your will, and wouldn't need to have blind faith to know you existed?
Would you create hundreds of millions of empty, uninhabitable worlds, in an infinitely huge environment, just to create their city? Or would you simply create what you need?
