There are others that left too. They're a despicable family and I hope the younger members that still have the rest of their lives ahead of them, realize it and leave as soon as they can.

There are three kinds of people:

People who have strong beliefs in their culture and who are very difficult to change because they don't give room for thoughts. This is the category where most people fall into.

People who are born among people who have strong beliefs in a certain culture, but have the tendency to think extensively. Such people are the ones who realize the truth at a later stage in their lives and move ahead to change their world view for the better, and accept the truth in front of everyone. This is the category where intelligent and good people fall into.

The third category of people are the ones who realize this truth (remember, to realize the truth one must think extensively) and meaninglessness of most beliefs in their culture but, keep staying within that religious system without openly accepting this truth just to go into higher ranks within their religious community and gain more respect, power and money. The third category of people are dangerous, because they are the ones who earn the most from religions.

Cool comment
