I have a Ph.D. in philosophy. I have read most of the great books of the Western canon, and many from the rest of the world. I have thought, studied and taught about metaphysics and ontology, epistemology, logic and matters pertaining to God for decades.

I am an adult convert.
Can you imagine how unbelievably stupid this line that “believers are victims of indoctrination” sounds to me?
If “believers are indoctrinated” then I “indoctrinated” myself by means of several decades of study, critical thought, and philosophizing.

On this criterion, no one who believes anything isn’t “indoctrinated.”
Not only that, anyone who speaks in this way is extraordinarily arrogant. He obviously thinks that the VAST majority of humanity is susceptible to indoctrination—but that he, of course, is not. Not him. He’s too clever by half to fall for that.
