(Worthy News) – A new study reveals that people tend to become atheists at a younger age when their religious parents are hypocritical about their faith.
The results were published in the Religion, Brain & Behavior Journal and explores how “the extent to which behavioral models consistently live out their professed ideals” affects their children.
The researchers asked 5,153 atheists how old they were when they renounced their faith and how committed their parents were in their own faith. They discovered that when parents sincerely model their religious beliefs in front of their children, they delay their decision to become atheists. [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]
