    I would say it is a statement of indeterminate veracity.

    It's clearly and obviously false. Beyond any shadow of a doubt.

    Arminian |ärˈminēən|
    adjective: relating to the doctrines of Jacobus Arminius (Latinized name of Jakob Hermandszoon, 1560–1609), a Dutch Protestant theologian, who rejected the Calvinist doctrine of predestination. His teachings had a considerable influence on Methodism.

    noun: an adherent of these doctrines.

    Born an Arminian? No one is born believing any doctrine. Not even Arminius was born that way; he became that way later on.

    Why don't you tell us why you would say that?

    The statement makes a point which I think is valid, if not literally true.

    Which point would that be? That a peculiarly Protestant doctrine regarding predestination is the natural or default position for newborns?

    This the sort of doublespeak that you are used to in your religion I suppose.

    Are you suggesting he meant "Armenian" ?

    If Noah's ark came to rest upon Mount Ararat, which the Armenians regard as a 'holy mountain' ...

    ... then we would all be descendants of Noah. But where Noah's boat landed is not where he came from; Noah was not an Armenian.

    Genetic evidence indicates a path out of Africa as being older than any other.

    You are going to have to decide between Noah and science. You can't have both.

    No. Guess again.
