Many atheists say (I myself am a free thinking theist) that atheism is the natural state of thought. They say that when a kid is born, believing in God is not a part of their natural consciousness maturity, and is forced onto them by society (parents, friends, community, etc). This is an interesting concept.
However, not only has been neurologically proven wrong (books like 'The Brain That Changed Itself’ which came out this September and 'Why God Won’t go Away’)
It is silly to even consider, philosophically! Right?
So why do atheists still tend to think that atheism is the default setting? because I’m sure if it was, believing in God wouldn’t be a universal archetype around the world. (along with music)
