Some years ago there was a seminal article written on a relatively obscure blog site that offered a list of mostly secular cognitive studies on the subject of whether the existence of God was based on nature (existed at birth) or nurture (exposure during life) and further if children were naturally religious or being indoctrinated by those in authority. The conclusion was that a belief in Creation and a Creator was either inherited, or at least not due to any coercion by outsiders (parents, preachers, etc.). If correct, kids are born with a predisposition toward the supernatural, and therefore atheism, or a view that there is no God, must be a learned viewpoint from outside influencers.
Christians have a belief that God placed a vacuum or emptiness in the heart of man that can only be adequately filled by a relationship with Him. We believe that mankind tries to fill that void with toys (cars, boats, etc.) but they provide only happiness, not joy. So, a series of research studies that suggest children might have an innate belief in a supreme Creator is intriguing in its application to that viewpoint.
