That would mean you didn't know you were one, not that you weren't. I see that the problem is you can't recognise the default state as the rejection. 

So, do you think anything can be real until it is presented to you?

I addressed this before, some people begin to believe in a deity as soon as they are made aware of it, so it can can also mean that someone didn't know that they weren't one, so again that's why knowledge of the concept is important.

The rejection state is the default. The becoming a theist later in a different point in time that can come with knowledge, yes, but it doesn't change the fact that before the knowledge of it came, the default state was reining. You asked me about a baby who is essentially a tabula rasa. A tabula rasa will only believe what is in front of them and they naturally reject everything else that isn't until the knowledge of it changes. This event is not retroactive. It only takes place from the point in time where they decide to become theists (if they do).

Is that all you have to say? I don't make up words nor definitions. I use the existing ones. You have me confused with religious leaders.

There's not much else to say. You're arguing against the very meaning of the word.

You really are boring. The definition of the word Atheism is the lack of belief in a god. It is everywhere and is the definition of the word officially recognised. Many people have linked it already on this thread. 

Don't like it? Want to make up your own definition based on the lies fed to you by your religious leaders? Go ahead. Not my problem. But it's total BS and only you and your religious buddies will eat it. Don't expect the rest of the world to. And after that you go and play the victims and want special treatment. Yes, i've seen this sad carrousel before.
