There is a built-in knowledge of God. Augustine said, "The soul of man is restless until it rests in God." God made man to serve Him and to know Him. Until he does, he is like a round peg in a square hole. He is out of fellowship with His creator.
There are no intellectual atheists. All atheists are not atheists because of intellectual problems. They are atheists because of moral problems.
You say, "But I know some brilliant people who are atheists." Well, so what? I know some brilliant people who are not. You say, "Well, I know some foolish people who believe in God." Well, I know everybody who doesn’t is foolish.
You see, it’s not a matter of intelligence. Romans 1:22-23 says, "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things."
All of us have a God-consciousness. It is not a matter of intellectualism. It is a matter of morality." Psalm 14:1a says, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God."
