Because some people believe that that the bible shouldnt be interpreted literally? It's not that crazy to believe that science is an instrument of God...

When you have an idea that is claimed to be true constantly hammered into your head from an early age.

You will have a tough time getting rid of it.

Purpouseful suspension of (critical) thinking caused by early childhood indoctrination that has made them unable to properly use their critical thinking skills.

Yes yes, because that happens with every single theist family ever, or at least the vast majority, right?

I would say that from what I saw in others it happens in a lot of families.
I know it didn't happen in mine, but then again my family is a quite educated one.
And I'm not talking about christians in general, but about creationists.
Plus the reason why most people believe in god is because their parents told them over and over again that he was real, often rewarding actions that move the children closer to the faith and often discourage or punish behaviour that goes against it.

don't, makes them think they aren't doing anything bad. kind of like saying a preacher is "leading them down the right path" when they are getting handys from 10 Y/O's

Pretty much.

If God claims were true, you wouldn't see certain religions so concentrated in specific locations. You wouldn't see it spread slowly over time, away from a central area. This is what indoctrination does.
