I liked what you said in your profile. I think that most people 'assume' the bible and jesus stories to be true and correct because that's what they're told as a youngin'. With a little research and self education, (and an open mind) it's easy to see how preposterous the whole thing really is. We just need to get a lot more people to "see the light".
Hi, and welcome to our little corner of sanity.
As you obviously like to read, may I suggest a few books? Firstly, Lee M. Silver's "Challenging Nature", which makes mention of studies on DRD4 Dopamine receptors and how they relate to both religiosity and schizophrenia. Barbara Walker's "Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets" and Robert Graves' "King Jesus" (if you can find it). I am lucky to have not had religion shoved down my throat as a child, and even now, my 87+ year old father calls creationists "Fucking idiots" (I learnt swear words from him as well).
