I thought I'd continue this discussion in a separate thread rather than going off topic in another.

Volkov: You were indeed born without believing in a god or gods.

popculurepooka: So rocks are atheists?

GeoLaureate8: Yes, rocks are atheist and more intelligent than a lot of people. They have no prejudices, no bigoted ideas, and they are not arrogant.

Ragnar Rahl: Rocks are agnostic, or I suppose soft atheist, but just calling them "atheist" gives off the wrong impression.

And they have zero intelligence. Acquiring prejudices requires an above-zero intelligence, although granted not necessarily far.

GeoLaureate8: A rock does not say, "I do not know if a God exists or not." A rock doesn't have any beliefs and disbelieves God like an Atheist. In order to be agnostic, the rock would have to acknowledge God in the first place.

So a rock is Atheist.

...Depends on your definition of intelligence.

...I would say that prejudice is below the level of having zero intelligence.
