Rocks are not members of atheism.
Rocks are members of atheism.
Atheism is not a category.
Rocks aren't alive, so they lack the conscious ability to determine what they believe.
If rocks don't believe in God, then they would be atheist, which isn defined by the dictionary as "a PERSON who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods". And obviously rocks are not people, are not living, and lack all conscious ability to choose a religion. Proving that they are not atheist.
U hav to b alive
Rocks are not alive, they obviously cannot have an opinion.
"Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities" - one must have a capacity and/or in a category to be able to reject and/or believe something first.
No, because all of creation declares His glory even if we do not. Even the rocks. "Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, 38 saying: “ ‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!’[a] Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” 40 But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” Luke 19:37-40
Definition of "lack": the state of being without or not having enough of something. Since rocks are without belief, they're members of atheism.
Rocks don't need to be able to comprehend something to be able to lack it. That's like saying a sandwich can't lack mayonnaise because it isn't consciously able to comprehend the existence of mayonnaise. Rocks don't believe in God, therefore rocks are atheists.
If it is not theistic, it is an atheistic. 1. Rocks are not capable of thought. (that we know of) 2. Therefore, rocks are not capable of possessing beliefs. 3. Therefore, rocks are not capable of possessing a belief in God. 4. Therefore, rocks are absent of a belief in God. Being an athe*ist* specifically requires it to be a person.
Pretty sure to have a belief or lack of, you have to be conscious.
