← Were you born an atheist?

I'm not atheist but I would suppose that atheists are born....or at least the sort of mentality that gives rise to atheism is born. I say this because my theism comes naturally to me. I was not raised in a religious household...in fact my parent never even mentioned God or the supernatural to me as far as I remember (although my mum did knit a nativity scene). But I have never not believed...it's always been with me I think...just sort of comes naturally....I don't see why an atheist shouldn't be the same way.
