Yes, not having a "Father" or having an abusive or non caring Father can influence kids to have not belief in God. Just the name..."Father God" would make them run the other way. Very sad! We can prove by history alone that all of the "Countries" existed in the Bible/Torah! So anyone who poo poos those books better think twice. Babylon existed!

According to a recent poll conducted by the Pew Research Center, almost one in three Americans under the age of 30 doubt that God exists, while, in contrast, the figure for Americans over the age of 65 is less than one in ten. Could there be a connection between the fatherlessness of this younger generation and their struggles with faith? According to a theory called “the psychology of atheism,” the answer might well be yes.

But first, some caveats. 1) There are many reasons why people struggle with the issue of faith, so it would be wrong to think that “one...
