Its also interesting to watch people who extricate themselves from one religion only to find themselves caught up in a different one. Or just believing in something or other because thats the type of person they are. Thinking of my mum here, who was raised catholic, got out of that but ended up becoming buddhist. It seems like she cant escape her believer conditioning so she cant go through life without it in some form or other.

Yeah or like... when nations gave up on God and started worshipping the state, North Korea is supposed to be atheist...

I had the perfect amount of Thanks until you came along
