I doubt we'll get an accurate "why" 'bout that for a real long time. Though I'm no pediatrician nor psychologist, I'd think that religion as a whole might alter how the brain wires itself as a child grows in some way. As for people who convert later in life... How'd they fit into this question? A difficult variable indeed.

I'd say anythin' that promotes lies and faith rather than fact can be connected t' ignorance.

Deity-centered religions as a whole, be it one (supernatural) god or multiple.
