Are Children ‘Hardwired’ to Believe in God?

“Dr. Petrovich’s research, like this biblical claim, suggests that we are innately predisposed to theism. She is not arguing that people are born Christians. No, the tenets of a specific religion must be taught. But her research strongly suggests that God has made children ready to receive that instruction. By contrast, unbelief is unnatural. As Dr. Petrovich says, ‘Atheism is definitely an acquired position.'”  Larry Alex Taunton, “Are Children ‘Hardwired’ to Believe in God?” The American Spectator, 11/17/2019.
