Sometimes childhood indoctrination backfires.
Luv your blog. I think a lot of atheists are atheists because they have questioned and analyzed and analyzed and thought some more, and know the bible better than most xians. I was loosely bought up catholic, not indoctrinated,went through first communion and confirmation, with no real idea of what it all meant. I started questioning xristianity when at about ten, at confirmation, the archbishop was sitting there, with gold rod, gold thread all over his clothes, huge ruby ring, and that was the start of it for me.How much did all this cost - were not catholics supposed to help the poor. How many people could all this 'stuff' feed. The priest was driving a Volvo and had his housekeeper, his own private wine cellar, I know this, 'cause my uncle was a wine merchant,and only sold the catholic church the very best of wines.
For you to get out of your indoctrination and I class it as, child abuse - takes incredible fortitude and intelligence. I think that is why a lot people in the evangelic types of religions, don't leave. They are scared of losing their family.
Also one of the biggy questions for me was 'Why did god invent mosquitoes?????
