I suppose one could make the case that the greatest cause of atheism is theism (which would include christianity). After all, it would make no sense to say you were an atheist unless someone had first articulated the concept of theism. There are an infinite number of concepts I may not believe in, but it would make no sense to do so unless I had first been made aware of what that concept was in the first place. So while everyone who is unfamiliar with theism is an implicit atheist, you could not have any explicit atheists without them having a knowledge of theism first.
