The problem with this video is that the dad seems to think atheism is a belief; it's not. It's a lack of belief, and since the baby lacks a belief in a deity, then the baby is an atheist. All babies are born atheists. God belief is often instilled as they grow.

I think you misinterpreted what Klfy was saying... which I'm not criticizing you as he is being confusing when he said that "he thought it was silly when ppl project their beliefs onto their children." He can sometimes be random like that... b/c he wasn't talking about himself and his baby. He said in the beginning that his baby is an atheist... he basically meant that baby's are atheists by default since they CAN'T believe in god. What he thought was silly was having to TELL everyone the obvious [to everyone but theists - most of the ppl who watch this show are atheist] that your baby is an atheist. - Although, I believe this video was also directed at his few theist viewers too... - even as a theist I knew it was silly to project christianity onto babies and animals because they are incapable of knowing about god... but his point is that they are "oblivious atheists" so he thinks it's pointless to try and use them as a "weapon" in your crusade against... whatever [theists, politician, abortion, homophobes, gay rights, "godless atheists" - lol, etc." because they have no idea what your talking about... and are probably wondering [while their holding a sign] when these silly adults are going to stop yelling and have lunch.
