Epistemology provides a natural framework for skepticism. It is the duty of a rational human being to utilize skepticism when confronted with a hypothesis that provides no evidence to support it. Just because an ideology has been passed down for generations does not make it true. You can indoctrinate children to believe anything and they will carry it with them their entire lives. The Council of Nicaea is enough to question the entire Abrahamic religions. 20 books were going around at the time, 4 were voted on and "accepted as truth." The other 16 were thrown out. The current state of religions are based on a popularity vote pushed by Emperor Constantine approx 1700 years ago. You didn't have a choice at that time, you believed what they told you to believe and if you questioned it, you were deemed a heretic and tortured or killed. If you want to believe an ancient religion, you should look at Paganism. It pre-dated Christianity by, roughly, 21,000 years and, in fact, Christianity stole many aspects of Paganism when it was created. Celebrations of Christmas and Easter were derived from Paganism as were the stories of miraculous birth, a son of God born as a mortal to die for the good of humanity and many, many more. That's not to say Paganism is true. As with all religions, it relies on faith instead of evidence to support its foundation. We as human beings need to have an awakening to rid ourselves of these falsehoods from the infancy of man that were utilized to comprehend the world around them. Modern science rids the need of a god hypothesis. The sooner humanity relies on secularization and modern science, the sooner we flourish and evolve to a higher species.
