    Hi Bill Spight -

    >Anyway, learning is not necessary. :-)

    Non sequitur. A belief is a learned behavior, especially when taking your
    definition into play. It's only when one speaks the truth that
    remembering is unnecessary, to paraphrase S. Clemens.

    To speak to the doubters of atheism (or science) from infancy, a child
    will examine to a cause, if it can, not create a fairy tale.

    But, if Grimm (or Qur'an, or Bible, or Mother Goose) is offered....
