But a person being inquisitive, tenacious and self-respecting does not depend in what kind of education received? If a person comes from a religious family, catholic or jewish, fear will be part of the education. And such qualitys can be found in religious people.

I think my real question is: to what extent the idea of god is inmate to us, and to what extent the idea is propagated by the society, especially in the childhood. God is a powerful idea but a false one. Why?
