I tend to agree with you Andy, re showing their faces.
I used to work with this really sweet girl....when I say girl I mean young lady, about 26, very intelligent, had her act together, etc.
We didn't discuss religion, the 2 of us, except once or twice the passing comment.
When I said she was smart, she really was, but, like everyone, there were just some things that either didn't interest her much, or, like everyone else, just took for granted.
Once, the subject of evolution came up. She was quite frank in saying she didn't know much about it, and hadn't given it any thought. She went on to say she figured the world came about the way the Bible said, because "How else could it have happened?" She had no interest whatsoever in how else it could have happened....just wasn't her thing.
She was a very social person, and it's less controversial to just go along with "God did it" when the people you associated with didn't much care about that stuff either.
During out work relationship, she had found (and been found by) a young man, and it was obvious it was going to lead to marriage (they're married now). She was happily wool gathering one day, talking about their future together. They had discussed where they wanted to live, and raise a family. She was talking about children, taking them to church, so forth. I asked her about that, and said she didn't seem particularly religious, didn't go to church now, why would she if she had kids.
Her insightful answer, well, didn't surprise me, but made me realize she did think more about some things than other people did.
She said she thought it was important to have a church while you're raising children, because it gave them an automatic community. They and their children would find friends, get involved in healthy activities, go on planned trips, present her children to the world as they grew as someone with standards and a strong moral compass. I asked her "so it's more about community than God?" She immediately said "That's right."
I'll have to say about her that she really was a good person, and I saw her at her worst, when angry, upset, etc. She never cursed, was very honest, and was very kind.
It was more like "God? Sure, why not?"
Oh....related to that, I think I asked her about her feelings on an afterlife (at least I asked her at one point) She had no definite ideas, didn't given heaven much thought, didn't give hell any consideration at all.
It was like she was "an accidental christian"....I think there's a lot of them
