    A science education lets you understand more and more that there really is no god. Some people, however, cling to their tradition and unsupported statements form authoritarians.
    I had a similar experience, but I think I was around 17 when I started to doubt. I was brought up in a fundamentalist family. Looking back, I probably never really believed as I never intensely thought about the things that I was taught is reality (e.g., God, Jesus, Satan, Genesis). It wasn't until I reached the age of reason that I started to think about things. Science and, especially, history definitely helped me.

    You might be right. When I was young we were taught all types of anti-scientific views. It wasn't until I started to read and critically analyze claims with the facts that I knew most of what I was taught about religion and science (by my pastor, church, family, fellow Christians) was complete nonsense. Knowing that I was taught complete falsehoods as facts, I also questioned other beliefs (like God in general). The upbringing my family wanted for me completely backfired.

    I'm closing this thread. The premise of the OP did raise some interesting problems for religious proponents who insist that religious assertions trump science and scientific ones, but it seems now to exist solely for the purposes of derision and for the sake of being anti-religious.
