Men are not born Atheists, they become Atheists. To claim that a man is born Atheist is untrue unless the concept of God is automatically pure nonsense to him. Take the youngest child with the earliest stage of intellect in place. When you try to explain God to them, you are not met with confused bewilderment. They have the natural capacity to understand the concept of God. Now try to explain that an engine exists inside a car and makes it go. Bewilderment or blind trust will no doubt follow. They have the ability to be taught and to learn what an engine is, but the built in capacity to grasp the concept of an engine is not there as it is with God. This is blatant and easy to access empirical data.
If knowledge of God was not built in, then men would see it as pure and un-intelligible nonsense from the earliest age. They would not see it fit for their constant written or spoken denial. So men, in a sense, become Atheists. They deny knowledge that they already knew to begin with. So the Atheist who uses any energy to deny God’s existence ends up confirming his own innate knowledge of the very thing he wishes to deny. In other words, with every word written and spoken in an effort to deny God’s existence, the Atheist proves he was born with knowledge of God that he is now opposed to. Because if the Atheist’s natural state of mind was “Atheist”, then the concept of God would be so foreign and stupid to him, he would not waste a single second denying such nonsense.
