Into the Empire State building, with no knowledge of the concept of "buildings" he would assume the building had just been eroded from some mountain, by entirely natural processes.

Atheist. Logic.

That would be a very religious form of atheism though, wouldn't it? Dogmatically believing in some specific cause or another for no rationally justified reason.. I'd say that the empiricist would start conducting experiments on the building; deducing it's properties until he finds what he can possibly know about it.. while the religious person devises any theory at all according to his whim; one which reflects more about his own mental state than the properties of the building.

Generally speaking, he would relate it to whatever frame of reference he was familiar with. If that was a natural formation, then sure.

But that'd be true of atheists and theists.

With the OP's analogy in mind, the theist will be disappointed to learn that Mt. Everest has no elevator service.

You fucked us stupid atheists up. Good job, you're a towering intellectual.
