"Just because belief in God is something that is taught does not discredit belief in God. It would be fallacious to claim that God does not exist because human beings invented the idea of God’s existence. Likewise, just because belief/knowledge in airplanes is something that is taught does not mean that airplanes does not exists."

"The point made is that no child has ever known of a god before being introduced to the concept by other people. No child has never said "Jesus Christ died for my sins" without being told so by a priest or their parents or whatever. So how can you claim they are born Christian when they've never heard of Jesus until they're told?"

Thanks for your follow up questions, and I believe you bring up good points. Also, I thank you for not resorting to ad-hominems.

This is just my belief, and you can take it for what it's worth. If Christians assume that infants can go to heaven, then we have to assume that infants are Christians from conception. This is a big field in Christianity called (don't laugh) "paedofaith." It seems consistent with Biblical accounts, for example, John the Baptist was "filled with the holy spirit" at birth.

However, before you're convinced of that, you must assume God exists, that God is the Christian God, an

Atheists who make this argument claim that this argument demonstrates that man is not God-made but that God is man-made.

Just because belief in God is something that is taught does not discredit belief in God. It would be fallacious to claim that God does not exist because human beings invented the idea of God’s existence. Likewise, just because belief/knowledge in airplanes is something that is taught does not mean that airplanes does not exists.

I just LOVE how evolution gets dragged up every time we talk about the existence/non-existence of God. Evolution is a fact. It's not a theory. It can be shown without the need for God. The mechanisms which drive evolution are not perfectly understood but the evidence for it is overwhelming. It's why we need flu shots each year; it's why we can't eradicate tuberculosis or even roosterroaches.
...and I'm just waiting for someone here to start talking about global warming and climate change in this thread. That seems to be the new religious battleground these days. I mean, how DARE we presume to think our actions can change the climate! They can; they have; they will.

oh and almightybob1... yes if you accept anything you are an ist. If you identify yourself as a subscriber of a particular belief in a debate you are that plus ist. This is how language works. Now that you have been educated on the matter you may call your self a lingu... wait for it... ist!

They key phrase here is "in a debate". There is no debate within the scientific community that evolution happens as both theory and fact.
So I am not an evolutionist, any more than I am a gravityist, an Ohmist, a thermodynamicist, a Maxwell's equations-ist, a Becquerelist, a Pythagorist (or should that be Pythagorasist? Just add -ist right?), a Faradayist etc etc etc.

mercedzdanz - you assume that belief is subject to the will, and that someone can choose to believe or not believe. Did you choose to believe in God?
And your aeroplane analogy falls down because 1) nobody claims that children are born with knowledge of aeroplanes and 2) the existence of aeroplanes is not in question.

The point made is that no child has ever known of a god before being introduced to the concept by other people. No child has never said "Jesus Christ died for my sins" without being told so by a priest or their parents or whatever. So how can you claim they are born Christian when they've never heard of Jesus until they're told?

mercedzdanz, an infant hasn't the knowledge to comprehend the concept of a god. The baby isn't rejecting the notion of god, because the idea had yet to enter into the infant mind.

Atheism IS, at its basics, the lack of belief in god. That's IT. Whether or the idea of god is rejected is up to the adult. Look at it this way: Let's say there's a society that believes in the Great Gshngihr. You happen to have never heard of such a being. With you having not even an idea of it, would it be right to say that you reject Gshngihr? No, you simply have no belief IN such a being. As an adult, one can both lack belief IN Gshngihr AND believe that it does not exist (given that you HAVE heard of Gshngihr).

Do continue commenting and showcasing your stupidity.

The notion that atheism is not an open rejection of God, but a lack of belief in god(s) without rejecting Him is a meaningless statement because people who are exposed to a concept and then decide to "lack belief" in it are effectively rejecting the concept and, therefore, God. Whenever a concept is introduced to a person, the person does something with that concept: believe, disbelieve, dismiss, etc. But, something is done and that something is a position held. "Lack of belief" is a position of choice in this regard.

Even if it were true that people are born atheists and not theists, it would have no bearing on whether or not atheism is true, and ultimately have no bearing on actual truth. For example, if infants are born without the knowledge of airplanes, that has no bearing on the validity of airplanes.

I believe babies can be born Christians. Like how you say you believe babies are born atheists, I believe I have the right to say babies can be born Christians.

lol @ mercedzdanz and his incredible stupidity. You know what, I guess babies CAN be born with the thought that Jesus Christ of Nazareth was the Son of God sent down to pay the price for all of mankind's sins. Actually, no, babies don't think that. What to babies do? Could they simply be born without a belief in god? BINGO! Just like they are born without a belief in Santa, it's taught to them.

Right, and I'm waiting for the day where babies will think something to the effect of "there is no proof to suggest me that there is a supernatural being."

I'm still waiting for the day when new-born babies tell their parents adhering to religion A that they themselves actually belong to religion B, C or D.

"I believe babies can be born Christians. Like how you say you believe babies are born atheists, I believe I have the right to say babies can be born Christians.

If you're going to say because it goes against all of science, then my reply is why is science omniscient?"

"Atheism is simply the default starting condition."

Why do you presume atheism is the default? Just because you believe so doesn't mean it is so.

"No baby was ever born Christian, or Muslim, or Hindu."

I believe babies can be born Christians. Like how you say you believe babies are born atheists, I believe I have the right to say babies can be born Christians.

If you're going to say because it goes against all of science, then my reply is why is science omniscient?

Well I guess you can't take it too seriously. A little wit is appreciated! But this felt more like running through a beehive for the most part. I expected better than some middle aged guy posting something like:

"Male, 18-29. 18 hopefully. If 29, is stupid."

...and absolutely nothing else to contribute to either side of the argument. (Hell he could have at least checked my profile and seen that I'm 21!)

But yes, this is IAB home of the slightly-NSFW. I probably shouldn't have expected a ton more.

I'd actually enjoy these debates if half our debating participants didn't call each other names right off the bat and took the subject matter seriously.

...but then this is a site for bad tattoos, FBI-quality hard drive content, and games with balls.
