1. First, choose your parents. At least one of them should be religious. If you say it is impossible to choose parents, then wish for dame luck to favour you with religious parents.You should also love your parents and be obedient to them. It now becomes easy to believe in gods, because you love your parents and your parents told you that there are Gods.
2. Next, understand that believing in Gods in the absence of evidence is especially noble. What is the big deal in believing in something with evidence. Any moron can do that.
3. Then, realize that the human ability to believe in Gods in the absence of evidence might itself constitute evidence for the existence of Gods. This is not a sign of our gullibility or naivety but a sign that a 'God Gene' has been implanted by the gods in our neural circuits.
4. Now consider any need for further evidence (both in yourself and in others) to be spiritually unhealthy, or a corruption of the intellect. Refer to steps 2-4 as acts of “faith”. Faith need not depend on facts.
5. Once you become an ardent believer, there are so many pay-offs which reinforce your faith, like Protection in this life from adversities & frustrations, happy afterlife in heaven & ultimate justice for you in heaven despite the earthly injustices you faced. All these makes your life purposeful & meaningful.
6. If exposed to alternate ways of making sense of this universe, viz., atheism & secular humanism, you get disturbed by its conclusions of death & oblivion thereafter and the lack of evidence for the existence of gods. You are reluctant to give up your security blanket of 'certitude' provided by your religion.
7. You go back to 2 in the recursive loop to reassure yourself of your righteousness: "Understand that believing in Gods in the absence of evidence is especially noble".
This is the default status of most human beings trapped in such a recursive loop. It is easier to believe in Gods and get on with the chores and rigmaroles of life. Who has the time or patience to dispute it.
Getting out of this trap
But to become an autonomous, free thinking and compassionate human being without god, you may have to unlearn a lot of concepts learned in our formative years and then learn new ideas based on real science, logic and critical reasoning, which to say the least, is hard work. The problem is, barring a few freaks, who likes hard work?
