Religion - when taught from little on - there is no proof of the opposite that the child can see. Everywhere it turns, home, school, church, it all looks the same.

Yeah, but he's not asking about belief with or without proof, he's asking about that state of mind in which we can't comprehend that others don't believe what we see.

and that state of mind can be reached by anyone, it applies to anyone who strongly believes something and encounters someone with a different view. That's why I think indoctrination doesn't work that well.

I say persuasion or conviction, but they don't fully convey the idea either. But I can't find a better word Consider

I think we can conclude that there is no current term for this state of mind.

So we need to invent one.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
