Apathy; Subject matter that relates to whatever you might learn in church is best extracted from books. Books are more convenient in many ways. For example you can read a book while you are eating a sandwich, riding the subway, waiting for the clothes washer to complete its' cycle, you can read a book while naked if you want to. You can, with the application of logic or plain common sense, recognize when a book is bull shitting you and you can discredit the book. When the deacon or preacher or Sunday school teacher presents irrational concepts you can not in good conscience blurt out that the speaker is full of crap. Books are preferable.
It would be a rare church conversation or lecture that did not resort to the standard set of "facts" that they tend to believe without a shred of evidence to support their beliefs. The peculiar part, that defies understanding, is that many of the congregants are intelligent well educated people who persist in believing ancient outlandish tales and are convinced that their holy book is the authentic word of god.
