People don’t choose to be atheist because they’re too lazy to find out more about religion. This post was inspired by a recent survey by the the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, which found that atheists and agnostics know more basic facts about the Bible than either Protestants or Catholics. (Though I don’t know how reliable this survey is, I thought it was interesting.)
So don’t assume certain things about someone just because they’re a certain religion! :)
Explanation: Some people think that for certain people, they are only religious because their parents/peers force them to be, but in some cases, people are a certain religion because it is really what THEY believe. It wasn’t forced on them.
