Born atheist? 

I've run into quite a number of so-called atheists who actually believe that we are born atheists. Where does this nonsense come from? When I said that nobody can be born an atheist because babies haven't the ability to process the god concept and hence cannot reject it, I got a bunch of these laughing face emojis meaning "Haha! We're laughing at you!"

Their line runs that babies have no belief in god and are therefore atheists until brainwashed out of it. I asked for evidence. In fact, here is the explanation verbatim:

"A baby has no notion of any religion until it is BRAIN WASHED into that not enough evidence? Which means that a baby IS an atheist until the brainwashing occur!"

It seems to me if we are born as atheists and have no notion of the god concept then who was the first theist? And how did this theist convince 93% of the world's population, of all people who have ever lived, to believe it? That's the stat I found--only 7% of the world's population is atheist. That less than half a billion out of 7 billion total. Half of that 7% live in China. With numbers like that, I would say that they human race is wired for theism or polytheism. If we were all born atheists, then it should be the default condition of the human race but it is not.
