You don't think faith is a choice?

Not sure I follow you. I definitely think that for the vast majority of us our decisions are based strongly on nurture - what our parents taught us and where we were born being the two biggest determining factors. The baby born in palestine is almost 100% likley to believe in allah and take a more fundamentalist approach than the baby born in Saudi Arabia.

 

But I still think it's a choice of what you want to believe, at least here in the US. Most of us are heavily influenced but not forced to believe in a certain way. And as we grow older we tend to question things and form our own sense of where to go or what to believe. At least that's how i see it.
