Comment 5 by rod-the-farmer :

I was hoping there might be some callers who said they belong to the group for whom religion "never took". They were exposed to religion as a child, but by 11 to 14, they had already made up their minds it was not for them. I think that is a subject worthy of further research.....what is different about such children ? The child him/herself, or their environment ?

I think not believing in illogical stories comes naturally for a lot of people, including children. Unfortunately, Indoctrination sucks some kids in for a while, but logic and rationality can eventually win out.
