I think that no interest in, or knowledge of science, skepticism or philosophy makes fertile ground for religion if the person is by nature prone to fear. On the other hand, if the person is inquisitive, tenacious and self-respecting, then it will be difficult for them to believe in any religion,

I am also atheist. And a radical one. But all my family are catholic, and you can imagine what is this in latin american country. In my childhood I was afraid of God. And my parents wasnīt in science. But more I learned about science, history and the way humans are more I doubted it. The fact that I donīt believe in religion anymore, which I undertstand sometimes is necessary and suportive, came from my education, which was most influenced from other people than my parents, or a failure in the transmission of idea?
