Thank you for the contribution Mohammad! So is "loneliness" the reason you suggest for becoming a theist?

Yeah, as in the modern era, the Elders live in solitude, since they are not acquainted with new forms of life. As a result, the community rejects them and they are seen as an insignificant member of the families as well as societies. This is why anyone who spent his/her golden age dwelling on the mysterious problems of life and solving religious mysteries is now seeking to find a peaceful haven in the family and community by embracing them and welcoming differences of opinion.

Fear (of death)

Agreed. Fear (of death, vulnerability) accompanied by loneliness (after losing the care-givers) might be a major reason to become a theist.

The missing link between atheism (science) and theism is spirituality

I agree with spiritual atheism, Felix! I read (probably in the book "The biology of belief") that religion and science used to go hand-in-hand in the past. The power vested among the religious preachers was, therefore, tremendous. That corrupted them eventually and led to the formation of a new branch called science. Spirituality is currently attached to religion and probably, therefore, not practiced along with science.
