My 11 year old daughter has a class assignment in her Advanced Civilizations class on Christianity.

Most Christians are Christian because their parents were Christian and were raised to believe it is true.

Have you seen the articles? Is she doing the assignment at home? If you can read the articles for yourself, it may help you to help her as to how to complete the assignment. I do, however,agree with the OP. Most people are xians because their parents were and that is how they were indoctrinated. Most people don't make informed decisions about religion. As someone who was raised Catholic, I can tell you that I started to question my beliefs in my early teens, and after a lot of rational thought, came to the conclusion that religion was all a load of BS. Most people, I would imagine, don't really think about what they were taught and just go on believing whatever it was they they were taught as children vis a vis religion.

I would want to see the articles - If this is a Public school I don't think they could slant it towards making you believe (but you never know!)

I still remember waaaaaay back in the 70's when I was in HS taking a Mythology Class - for our class project we each had to pick a "mythology" and write about it in depth - I did Egyptian - and still remember being surprised that the Pyramides were not built by slave/hebrews like Hollywood had lead me to believe (think The Ten Commandments)

Another girl in our class did Christianity / Bible and I recall a lot of the class was "shocked" but our teacher thought it very good and let her go with it! - looking back on it - that English teacher was ahead of her time.

In true DD11 fashion, she never told me how she solved this issue or even showed me the paper.
