How do you answer the argument by atheists that you are religious because you have been born and raised as a religious person and you believe in the stuff religion has told you because it has been embedded as such a major part of your life. If you were born atheist and then looked at religion you most likely wouldn’t convert to religion. Your culture and surroundings are the result of your religion and not your understanding and knowledge itself.
I find this to be true pretty much everywhere where I live and even within my own family. And taking into consideration the fact that conversion from religion to atheism is a lot lot higher than the amount of conversion from atheism to religion it seems that culture really may have an impact on religious background and when they gain an understanding/knowledge people tend to leave.
