Many of you have recently said that we are all born Atheists.

I think my stance was that we are all born Apatheists which is a type of Atheist. Basically, we are all born without having made a choice - then throughout life we make choices and believe different things.

So I don't think God creates the person distinctly as an Atheist. It seems more reasonable to say that He just gave every person the choice to do as they wish.
Not to sidetrack the thread, but I couldn't let this go. Each person logically must be born a theist or an atheist. They either have a belief in a god (theist) or they don't have a belief in a god (atheist). I would argue it's the latter due to their not having any concept of a god at all yet and they therefore can't be an apatheist either. You can't not care about something you don't even know about at all.
Basically, infants are implicit Atheists whereas most Atheists after being introduced to the ideas of Theism become explicit Atheists once they have consciously rejected Theism.
In my understanding, explicit Atheists have basically took a stance against Theism with reasoning and logic.
That reasoning and logic turns into arguments against Gods existence which then is used during debates and discussions.

So far, it looks like we eventually decide for or against the idea of Theism.
