"....but you're still implying that people who reject religion are close-minded children who have never ACCEPTED religion in the past and have never showed interest or obtained any knowledge on any religious subject."
-----------------

OK....  since your signature, at this time, says it... im going to yell at you...

" READ THE PARALLEL AGAIN !!!!  THE KID SAID NO TO IT BECAUSE THE OTHER KID SAID IT WAS NO GOOD !"

THe implication was NOT that people who reject existing religions are closed minded... THEY HAVE SAMPLED AND DECIDED THAT IT "TASTES" NOT TO THEIR LIKING !!!

This was an illustration how closed mindedness manifests itself.  With a closed mind, you dare not sample the possible wonders that might be available! And if you don't sample...  you don't know what you are missing... No one is "force feeding" anything here... just so you don't get the wrong idea...

The other kid said that it was bad and affected the first kids desire so seek new experiences.

THAT IS AN ILLUSTARTION OF CLOSED MINDED THINKING !

Am I alone on that thought?

:confused:

I understand what you're saying... many people will mistake somebody else's opinion for fact. Just like how kid A convinced kid B that shrimp A was no good BEFORE kid B had ever experienced it, person A can convince person B that religion A is good before person B even understands it.

I was just trying to say that many athiests have previously been religious - they HAVE already tasted the shrimp PERSONALLY.

I agree with you though that SOME people will just hop on with what somebody else believes, because the belief is already laid out for them, minimizing thought. I think many people do this with organized religion: "hey that sounds about right - I should sign up with these guys"

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Ha ha ha... Ya.. it sort of reminds me of that game... LEMMINGS  :tongue:

And I agree with you that it is SOME..  If I made it sound like ALL, I was not expressing it correctly.

:grin:

I read it as "most" due to the confidence of the post
