I like the general idea of this and agree with most points, but when he says children could be brought up more open minded, he's kinda contradicting himself because he just dismissed a whole belief system in a very closed minded way.

His whole point is that children don't have the ability to reason well enough yet to see the obvious problems with the religions they are being brought up in. They just follow the leader, which isn't their fault, but a problem nonetheless. I don't see how he is being close minded. Richard Dawkins is a good example of someone who is far from it. He was brought up Christian and then eventually gave it up, like most people should start doing honestly. (In all religions.)

To say he is being close minded is a little far off I think, since he was brought up in a religious family just like the children in this video. (Not as extreme.) Maybe if the person commentating the video was raised in a secular family and had done no real research on religion and it's flaws, then I think you would have a good point. But since that's not the case.... I think you may be wrong.

Sounds more like the problem of ignorance, rather than religion.

"Oh, gee, look at me, I believe in some form of organized religion. Guess that automatically means I no longer have any interest in being a bioengineer, physicist, or anything else that involves discovering the world around me and how it works." - Said no one ever
