I think this is a very interesting and important question for anyone and everyone to consider, as we bounce against one another like electrons in an atom with our different beliefs, notions and religions. Important because of the profound affect these notions have on all of us one way or another, directly or indirectly.

"What explains why some people are more religious than others?"

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/b...ology-religion

I believe it is the understanding of the psychology and/or these dynamics that tends to help people "break away" from many an influence that is not always so worthy of adopting let alone promoting. That influence of parent on child and child with parent that determines to what extent we "break away" as a generation over time, one generation after another.

The psychology sure seems to be more about what's going on over the facts, reason and logic that religion tends to offer anyway.

"Through these presentations, it becomes quite obvious just how different people are in their approach to religion and spirituality, and it beckons us to consider why."

Sure does me anyway...

Seems like. From comments made, I would say OP should isolate one part of the process that was most helpful and present it.

Isolate what? What process?

Are you not able to read my opening comment? Anyone?

There are as many "religions" as there are religious people, which points to the complete subjectivity of the set of beliefs within a religion that each person chooses for himself. Take Christianity--please! Sorry, that's an old Henny Youngman joke. Anyway, take Christianity. You have the Calvinists and the Arminianists. You have the liberals and the conservatives and the fundamentalists, who are in a class (and a mental hospital) all by themselves. You have universal salvationists, eternal tormentists (who torment us eternally with their posts) and annihiliationists. Then you have roughly 35,000 different sects within the word, Christianity. I can't think of a better example to point up to the fact that religious belief is completely psychological. There's nothing supernatural about it.

Can read your opening comment but the link to the article doesn't work. If it does for you, it's likely because you bookmarked it when it was viable and your computer cached it.

Have you tried clicking on the link as it is in your post or are you checking it from your source page?

Ah! Thanks. You are a BIG help. I replaced the link with one that maybe works better now. Not sure what happened there...
