That is because we were taught procedural coding throughout our schooldays. I was taught procedural coding at the age of five. Admittedly neither Miss Cutler nor I knew it was called procedural coding, but that is what it was. It was the sort of thing I learnt that lays the foundations for procedural thinking for life. Have a little example:-

If you start reading procedural code and compare it to school algebra/maths/arithmetic, doesn't it look similar? I think that is why people gravitate towards a procedural way of thinking. Of course, if people will start by teaching procedural coding, they are going to find it even harder to get people to think in objects later on.
