When will we learn to accept new things?

Look, when it comes to religion, most are blind. They are, because most have been taught practically from birth one perspective. It is like being told your mother is not your mother. It is just simply unacceptable. It is difficult to argue points in this subject because it is so difficult to entertain another idea at all. You can argue with bible quotes, and then someone will just answer that the bible was changed, or the bible is wrong, or your interpretation is not correct.
I on the other hand, was raised with no religion, and it sounds like one big fairy tale to me. I know that does appall some people. But it took me 25 years to accept the fact that there just might be something to that black book, than just a bunch of stories. It would take me some more studying time to argue the point on Magdallen.
I am still not the least bit religious but newly found the bible of some interest. Most, will never learn to accept new things, especially when it comes to the old book.
