But is it rhetorically really that strong? I mean even while admitting the point, is acquired knowledge less true by definition?

I think the statement is a bit too strong. I would argue that a newborn human can not understand any metaphysical concept, since he or she lacks the ability to use language. Thus you are not born Atheist, you are born neither theist nor atheist.

Well by definition, Atheists lack faith in any god, and because humans are born lacking any concept of God, atheism is a reversion back to the original mentality.
