Yeah, I understand that.  I'm one of those weird people who grew up 
areligous.  My family wasn't particularly hostile toward religion, but no 
one ever really talked about it much.  Parents, grandparents, 
great-grandparents were all non-practicing and didn't ever talk about 
religion much.  I've always been interested in religion though, but its 
from more of a sociological perspective.  I spent awhile in high school 
attending a Methodist church and Sunday school to see what Christians (or 
at least one sect) had to say for themselves.  It was interesting.

As a result of my upbringing and natural academic inclinations, I'm more 
knowledgeable about religious doctrine than many of my friends who grew up 
in various faiths, but they are much more knowledgeable about the 
day-to-day living practices.  Makes for interesting discussions.
