We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

I have come to realize that if religious indoctrination takes place at a young enough age, it is astonishing what humans will believe. And, religious indoctrinated people will reject any future contrary information and/or opposition to the supernatural beliefs they have been taught. Early religious instruction leads to a mind-boggling number of unnatural beliefs and values such as: an immaculate conception (virgin births), original infant sin, limbo, purgatory, hell, sacred crosses, simony, venial sins, mortal sins, selling of indulgences, water converted into wine, holy water, miracle water, holy grail, sainthood, barbaric Inquisitions, a holy spirit creature, winged angels, devils, intact hymen at birth, crucifixion, resurrected corpses, ascension, celibacy (repression), miracles (magic), hellfire and damnation, a patriarchical God, a trinity (multiple personality and dissociative God), pearly gates, transubstantiation, cannibalistic eucharisitic celebration, exorcisms, meaningless and monotonous prayers, souls, paradise, seducing serpents, rapture, Garden of Eden, Adam and Lilith (1st wife), Adam and Eve (2nd wife), anti-Christ(s), saints-sinners, demons, Noah's Ark, walking on water, corpse worship, flying into skyscrapers and beng rewarded with 57 virgins, God sitting on a cloud to judge, judge, judge, etc. etc. Do you agree, that early religious indoctrination becomes an endless display of nonthinking supernatural silliness?

Maybe for some.  I had all that religious indoctrination too.  I sincerely believed all of it.  I quit believing any of it many decades ago.  Now I classify it with stories of Gilgamish, Ahura Mazda, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, and many other legends.  Interesting fiction.

I hope not. Even as you cite compelling evidence. I can say that we had religious classes at school with the option to opt out which I did. Asked the other boys why they went and they said: for the girls of course! No one was paying attention to the dolt up front ranting on about whatever. So I can say that 'here' at the south west pacific rim this religious nonsense is blithely ignored. Then I got married - and this woman came from a religious family. Methodists turned into Uniting Church. These in-laws for the full on head case types except they did not proselytize. Still it was suffering visiting. Ditto the two daughters - who could not wait to leave when there and get on to the piss pronto. They never went near a church again - except to get married  - and then divorced. Perfect I reckon. Both were excellent drinkers. Never boring. Totally into life. Managed to ignore the propaganda. Gives one hope.
