Religion and the intellectual

When I was a student in the Netherlands, none of my fellow students, as far as I can remember, were interested in religion. We never discussed it, but I think the general feeling was that we'd outgrown the church and its unrealistic beliefs. Wasn't the Bible full of contradictions, and didn't the churches fight each other while proclaiming God to be Love?

Apparently this attitude is still widespread. In an issue of the Holland HeraldSee Vol. 8, No. 7, p. 9; I read, "The latest Dutch census has shown the number of people declaring no religion has increased from 18.3 percent of the population in 1960 to 22.5 percent."
