He was referring to Christianity, which is an established religion. It's a choice whether you are Christian or not. It's not something that comes
naturally. It is something that is taught.
As for your discussion about faith, no, I don't believe that is something that comes naturally either. I think it is a by-product of other
'natural' human feelings though. It's not instilled in me to believe in something, 'just because.' It's nothing something that comes
Now, something is more natural, is probably the fear of dying. Or at least, the unknown -- what happens when you die, is there an afterlife, do you
continue to exist, so you simply 'die,' or what? I think anyone that is aware of their own mortality, as we humans are, these are 'natural'
So faith in something greater, ie God, is the way you react to such feelings. But you coming to this solution is not THE answer, it's just the
answer you came up with personally. If it were natural for everyone to be instilled at birth with faith in the unknown, you wouldn't have atheists,
and you wouldn't even need churches or religion -- since what they teach would come 'naturally.'
