    "Early in life we begin to think and choose..." (1 of 3)

    Early in life we begin to think and choose; the scope of our decision process gradually becomes enlarged. With the passage of time all information we accept as true and assimilate determines our operative frames of reference which govern how we view, respond or react to new information, ideas, issues and other people. We become what we eat and drink physically and what we think in our innermost beings. "For as he [a man] thinks within himself, so he is." Proverbs 23:7 Your thoughts?

    I wish the religious institutions would take this into consideration when indoctrinating very young children with their "truths". I think a child's deductive and reasoning capabilities should be allowed to develop before other people's beliefs are forced into them.

    No wonder your picture is super woman, you must come from another planet if you seriously think religions don't try to get young children under their influence, BEFORE those children can effectively question and challenge the views being fed to them.

    I would say its largely true. But do not confuse this with the claim that therefore everyone is equal in how they handle new information, or that therefore rational people like me are as equally likely to be wrong as irrational people like you.
    How we respond to new information is different, but it is still possible to determine the accuracy of information.
