You are aware that most Jews in the world abandoned Torah observance in the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries. This is because this “indoctrination” you laud simply could not answer the questions young Jews were asking at the time. Who says such a mass falling off couldn’t happen again? Once people start questioning the indoctrination they received and see that it wrong on one thing, instead of learning to view things with a logical, open mind, they will start asking “what else did they lie to me about?”
There is no question that a properly educated, logical, inquisitive NON-INDOCTRINATED mind can accept Torah, we all know people like that. This is the only Torah that can stand up to the challenges of modernity.

We should not be afraid of modernity, science, curiosity! We need to know how to react and what is essential and needs to be kept, and what needs to go if it is proven to be wrong or untenable.
