Coming from a family with deep episcopal roots (at least on my dad's side), and with the majority of my family consisting of older folks, this concept pretty much surrounds me. My grandparents and my aunts & uncles & cousins are real big into religion. They go to church every sunday, do all the religious stuff, and so on. Hell, even my brother still does it, who's older than me by about twelve years. It's also the same case with my grandmother on my mom's side. Always railroading me into going to her christian science church with her.
Because of both of the influences, my view on religion is kinda 'mixed'. But even considering that fact, as trip said earlier:
Bottom line is science is winning the race
Of course, I was brought up to know religion, and even though there's a good deal of science that may be able to prove religion wrong in some aspects, there's also some that prove it right, as far as I know. But yeah, if I were walking down the street and a bear slashed open my arm and ran off, I'd most likely try to get medical help rather than pray about my arm. I might pray about it, but the key word being "might".
Hell, I might grow up to be really old and start going to church. And then maybe if (god forbid) I have grandkids, I'll railroad them into going to church with me so this wonderful cycle keeps repeating.
