The issue is that truth and epistemology are not necessarily the same thing. One deals with the truth of the matter and the other, our warrant for believing in it. On what basis would you say someone is justified in believing in something?

I am not looking for justification, only the core reason or a root cause for a belief.

Unfortunately, I rarely get past the second or third "Why?" without being called an Atheist or worse.
