I've talked about this before, but the source makes this story extra interesting. Ken Ham (Answers in Genesis) is openly talking about a Heritage Foundation (Right wing think tank) founder research into kids leaving the church. Conventional wisdom has always blamed the leftist colleges and the God Damn Liberal thinking leading the kids astray. Turns out the research is showing that Sunday School Teaching itself is driving away the kids as early as elementary (the story of resurrection struck me this way and it was the last time I went to church with any intent to learn to be God fearing.)
The lack of logic is clear even to kids. The stories of Jonah, Noah, Young Earth, etc are casting doubt into kids that weren't raised in a field by sheepherders. Today's kids are savvy. The BS meter goes off sooner and the indoctrination doesn't have time to settle before doubt exists. The findings are that the kids who attend church the most are most likely to defect. It's being called the Sunday School Syndrome. I love the idea that kids today listen then reject religious doctrine based on seeing what explanations smell of manure when compared to science and logic.
Maybe the answer is to send my kids to church to be sure that they don't become religious? The future is looking brighter and maybe I won't have to learn another language and move to Europe to avoid choking someone on my doorstep? Thank God for his ignorance! When Ken Ham admits a failure, it's biblical. We are talking a guy who argues that the earth is 6000 years old.
