Atheism could be from multiple causes but most likely has a root in infancy.
One of the biggies is early attachment formations.
Can't people start to do their own psychoanalysis like Freud though? Freud wasn't the product of a perfect environment but he managed to look into things even though he drew a few wrong conclusions.
They should start to investigate the reasons for atheism before labeling other people "delusional".
Hitler was pretty "delusional" and he labeled a lot of people without truly investigating their origins.
If he did he might have discovered a lot of the Ten Tribes of Israel's descendants were Germans.
Isn't what Hitler did to the Jews the most extreme form of sibling rivalry? Of course he didn't know the Jews were family.
Every group in the human race is family if we all came out of Adam and Eve.
It's most likely a psychological issue that atheists haven't ferretted out keeping them atheists.
God tries to simplify things by just calling people but some people won't obey. What makes people disobedient and/or rebellious? Isn't it a reaction based in parenting styles in part? Isn't teen rebellion a part of human nature but some people rebel a lot harder?
Why do people's dreams die? They shouldn't have to. People should always be able to self actualize and transcend or at least have a shot at it.
I Dreamed A Dream
The New Testament calls a self actualizer an "overcomer". Isn't the first obstacle anyone has to overcome himself?
