If I were you

If I had your genes and your knowledge and experience, I would have your personality and worldview. And vice versa.

So it is kind of pointless, not to mention insulting, to ask (incredulously or rhetorically) of a theist or an atheist, “How can you possibly believe that?”

By contrast, it is both respectful and constructive to ask, “How did you come to that conclusion?”
