Religion was developed by man as a tool to control man. (it's a scam in other words.)
What happens if you are born an atheist but have religious parents?
I would argue that you are taught your religion and that the teaching will depend on whom you are born to. So was your birth a pure chance or was it predetermined by a god that you had yet to learn about?
