Many of the atheist on this site have related how they at one time believed in God. But they got over it.
The study with the children echo as much.
In other words it seems a person has to learn to not believe in God.
I'm not sure this demonstrates anything other than the fact that religion is already widespread in our societies. I used to believe in God because I was told as a child that he existed. This indicates a tendency for children to believe their parents, not to believe in God.
