My point is that I would guess that if it could be shown that children reared on his material grow up into adults who do not believe in God, Professor Dawkins would see this as success.

I'm not sure, you'd have to ask him. No doubt more than otherwise would not believe in God, which points to *something*, does it not?

My feeling is that some folk not indoctrinated would still choose a religion in adulthood, but I (and, I suspect, Dawkins) wouldn't object to this (other than in the usual way of arguing against their world view). The Anabaptist approach of credobaptism is surely more honourable and *defensible* than the unholy rush of much religion to herd as many children as possible through its educational establishments.
