What percentage of your time is spent studying the factual and contextual history of your religion vs how much is spent on reading doctrinal texts? In other words - do you read only the holy book(s) of your faith, or do you also read factual history books to put things in perspective?
For discussion sake, Discovery and History channel shows don't count - most of those are horribly inaccurate. If you ever tried to cite one in a history class, even at the high school level, you'd get an automatic F for using a fake source.

Yes, I love history. It is part of what made me stop believing in religion.
