Atheism is not the default position despite what many atheists persist. The default position is nothing. To be an atheist you must first become aware of the concept of gods to reject them either consciously or unconsciously. To disbelieve in something you must first acquire knowledge. If we were to accept that atheism is the default position then we must also accept that anti-science is the default position of all humans, since no one is born with an innate knowledge of science but this too would be nonsense. Those who reject different forms of science must first learn of the science to reject it and be anti-science. Likewise an atheist must learn of the concept of God to disbelieve or reject his existence and to declare themselves as an atheist with an understanding of what that means to be atheist. Atheism with not being the default position is then just like any other philosophical position: it too has its point to prove and it fails to do that. This short ebook examines why that is.
