"Religious people and atheists have formed views on the existence of God. A baby is just interested in eating, body contact, and other primal comforts. It also hasn't been inculcated in any doctrine yet."

"Saying an absence of faith is a stance against theism is like saying an absence of a computer is against the internet."

"Ermmm...wouldn't it be a smidge more accurate to say humans are born ignorant of theism? I suppose that falls under atheism... No, atheism is a stance against theism. It isn't ignorance of theism."

"Doesn't an absence of knowledge for theism constitute as atheism? Being a theist doesn't seem to me to be a natural state, otherwise proselytizing and indoctrinating impressionable minds wouldn't be necessary."

"Some tsar (I don't remember which) wanted to know which language babies would just naturally grow up to speak, without someone making them speak a particular one.  So he had babies raised in isolation without human contact.  They died."

"....I thought this topic was gonna be a new recipe. Even Christians believe that babies need to be baptized and/or you need to be born again. The initial birth is not enough."

Why are you here?
The lobbying power of religious sects in ratio to atheists' lobbying power is abhorrent! No one in politics dares to profess their atheism, although, statistically, there must be. We need to band together!

Christian
Why you left your religion.
I obtained knowledge. I was agnostic for a while, but the moment I realized my atheism was extremely liberating and I will never forget that moment.

Atheist babies

So I was vehemently opposed by another individual when I told her that all babies were atheists. I also said that no innocent child believes in the supernatural beings until they are proselytized to believe so. Doesn't geographic determinism prove this? If you're born in the United States, you'll probably end up Christian, and if you're born in Iran, you'll end up Islamic. Doesn't this prove my point? I'd appreciate any devil's advocates.

I don't believe that this is a quote that can readily be overlooked. Indeed, if there is a god, and he created us in his image, then wouldn't he use his intellect, reason, and continuing knowledge to question himself as the great french philosopher Descartes did when he wrote,"I think, therefore I am."? Why shall we ever believe in something so profound as to never question it, and to blindly follow it with such fervor?

It is too easy to speak of such things with confidence on…

The beauty of science

Prior to science, superstition conquered. Aristotle believed that objects in motion slowed because they simply became "tired." God was reason for all, and all was reason for God.

Due to brilliant minds we have emerged from these opaque ages of knowledge. Newton enlightened us with mathematical logic in the 17th century. He also enlightened us with knowledge of optics,…
