Religion Hinders the Ability to Differentiate Reality from Fiction in Young Children
Children from religious upbringings have a more difficult time distinguishing between real and fantastical than children raised without religion. It seems clear that the upbringing of children has a large impact on the way that students process information in stories that they encounter. Whether those stories be in the latest fiction novel or the newspaper (which is a frightening thought).
Follow-up on this will be important.

Fancy that. Not that surprising but it says nothing about a religious upbringing being a contributor or source to that inability. I know a number of people that are not overtly religious and are not practicing as such, who have some pretty strong beliefs beliefs which I consider Woo.

There are only two types of religious people, the deceivers and the deceived. SS

This has been a personal observation since I found and embraced skepticism. But not only from friends and people I've known or met, but from introspection as well. It's nice to see actual scientific studies on the subject confirming my current stance on the subject.
