The burden of proof is on the one making the claim. In this case, you pray the U.S. will
change religions to yours. There are some fine
aspects to your way of thinking, but maybe not enough to claim the universe all works that way.
And you admit you do not even know some basic facts about how the religion connects with the facts of history and human population biology.
So, gently, the question is still upon you.
The same is often true of great numbers of Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and other religionists. They are not rejected. But if they are making a claim about universality, it is fair to ask them a few questions in clarification. If they are unaware the issue existed, this does not prove their religion is true.
With goodwill,
