Hi all,

I saw a study once where little and not so little kids were interviewed to find out their way of thinking. it turned out they only started to believe in religious concepts when they grew older and indoctrination had an effect.

I am looking for this study but can't remember any details that would help me google it. Can someone help me out?

Is there anywhere a collection of these studies and surveys and such? If not, maybe we can make such a collection ...

;o)

when I was a kid I remember myself making fun of religion..and now my 7 year old son is making fun of the quran! (o.O) haha!

Interesting!

So these were children who were exposed to religion early in life, but didn't swallow it all until later in life or were they children unexposed early life and only exposed later and then swallowed it?  

Great, thanks Nelson, this is exactly what I meant! :-)
