If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Small gullible brainwashed children have a good excuse for their supernatural fantasies. That excuse is no longer valid after they grow up.

I would bet all religious indoctrination is pretty much the same, whatever the cult is.

My religious brainwashing was intense and it lasted several years. Perhaps it wasn't as bad as what the Protestant fundies had to endure, but it was a terrible waste of my youth.

I was the victim of a Catholic grade school, nine years of it from kindergarten thru 8th grade.

Try telling children "Christ died for your sins" several thousand times for 9 years and see what happens. The vast majority of those young victims will never recover from this idiocy.

But other children grow up and they figure out the whole thing was bullshit. They also figure out the brainwashers were insane assholes. If they're like me they're surprised not every victim realized what had happened to them. When I was in my 20's I met a student from my nine years of forced stupidity and I was shocked to find out he never grew up. He still had the same idiotic fantasies.

I've never been able to figure it out. This student had the best grades in the class, so he was the last person I would have expected to not recover from the disease.

Some of the other students were nitwits so of course they're not likely to ever accept reality. But how to explain when intelligent brainwashed victims never figure out religions and gods are bullshit?

I still don't get it. Here we are in the 21st century. We have the internet so it's easy to discover there's at least one billion normal people (AKA atheists) in the world. We have never ending scientific discoveries that show beyond any doubt supernatural magic is an unnecessary idea. We have professional normal people writing books about the religion problem and why it's bullshit. Yet there's still these diseased people who should have been cured a long time ago. What's their problem?

I have to stop here because I can't explain it.
