While seeing a neighbor's daughter - who is married with two children, and who believes in and follows the same religious pattern as her parents - I came upon the idea that maybe any situation in which a child grows up believing in the same things as their parents and in the same way of living, even if the details are different but the framework is the same, is an unnatural situation. Religion does that, it brings people into a set belief system, but the thought that children will fit into the same thought system as their predecessors is uncanny and even absurd.
This was one of those ideas that is more a feeling than an idea, but it was a strong feeling, and maybe it can develop into an interesting idea.
Maybe I'll think about it some more. Maybe not.
