Truth is all that which can be determined to exist. It is not a philosophical mind-bender, but rather a status dependent on conscious reality.

How can anyone become an atheist when we were all born with no religious beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were ...

When they hear we say something like, "there are not even single evidence for the existence of God/god, thus God/god aren't exist", then they quickly resort to respond like this "what you've asserted is an absolute truth, then you're contradicting yourself thus actually absolute truth exist, and you can't disprove it".

But even then, "absolute" is just a concept. But idk about the truth. Perhaps, it is also just a concept?

Science asserts a definite, tentative maybe. Probably.

We use pencils, not indelible ink. Yes

Not sure how a 'definite' can be maybe, but i get your drift.
As for "truth" I have always had massive difficulties.?./...

There are clear cut truths of course----heavy as opposed to light. When we get in to controversy though, 'truth' really get stretched in all directions.
Too much dogma can destroy dialogue, as one party endeavours to steam roll their rationale.
