How may a catholic upbringing lead to believe in God?
Going to church and seeing people worship and pray to God is likely to make them think god exists. As a young child, their parents would have taught them about God and children believe what their parents tell them.

How may religious experience lead to belief in God?
Numinous-experience would make them feel that god is real. Conversion-God is calling them to do a job. Miracle-if the miracle is real, god has acted on earth and people have had direct contact. Prayers-God is listening and does exist.
3 of 5
The argument from design and belief in god
anything designed needs a designer. the only possible designer of something as beautiful and complex as the world would be god, there is plenty of evidence that the world had been designed e.g. DNA, evolution and beauty of nature.
