Re: [humanism-174] Americans Love The Bible But Don't Read It Much, Poll Shows

I can't help but wonder how many of those who don't read the bible at all or on a regular basis might become abandon their religion if they were to start reading it with serious reflection on what it contains. I've heard a few atheists over the years say that reading the bible in a manner other than for devotional purposes - meaning applying some critical thinking while reading it - has turned believers into nonbelievers. Sure would like to know if there is any data on this.
