Yes,but humans are a distinctly different type of animal,and while technically animals,in practical usage animals refer to most non-human life.

As my comment goes in depth into calling babies atheist is inappropriate since atheism is a lack of belief,and babies being blank slates have no beliefs about anything so they can't be called anything. It is as @Prometheus labs CEO claimed.

I think your stretching the definition of Atheist as the dictionary definition is "a philosophical or religious position characterized by disbelief in the existence of a god or any gods" Disbelief, Now at one point

@Background Pony #7141

you claim most atheist are agnostic but atheism and agnosticism are very different thought some of their views are not-exclusive.

An atheists does not believe in god and holds that as fact,that it is real that there is no god,to have such "truth" they must have some knowledge of the workings of belief so that they can reject it.

The definition of Agnostics is "one who is not committed to believing in either the existence or the nonexistence of God or a god". And as such they are a more broad group and less committed to a factual position. If you had claimed all babies are born Agnostic that I felt would be appropriate. A lack of belief from ignorance is not atheism,a baby cannot be called atheist no more then he could be called a Jew,Muslim,Christian or any theism at birth since they all ignorant and have yet to make the choice of a position. That's my view and I think its logical and sound.

While babies are atheist they are atheist by ignorance rather than by choice. by which I mean they are athiest because they aren’t even aware of the concept of god/religion, while atheist by choice know/understand such things, they just don’t believe in them

Atheism is the belief that there is no divine being, babies aren't aware of the possibility of divine beings, so they can't be atheist.

I'm an atheist so I don't believe in any God, but I'm just not convinced there is a divine being/God, not convinced there is no God. Do you think "I don't believe you're guily of committing the crime" means the same thing as "I believe you're innocent of committing the crime"?

Yes, babies are blank slates, they don't believe in God, which means they're atheist. Most atheists are agnostic, they don't claim that there is no God, they're just not convinced that there is one.

Babies can't believe in a God, because they aren't capable of understanding anything like this yet, so they're atheist because they lack belief in God.

Atheism is simply a lack of belief in a God, not a belief that there is no God.

someone mentions religion
debate about religions happen
participants don't know AIs don't like atheists and nobody knows why
seriously, look it up, "they" don't just don't like "the lack of belief in God" as they word it
