Is atheism the default position?

Atheists often postulate that everyone is born an atheist and they will try to argue that atheism is therefore the natural position, or the default position, whereas religion is something artificial which is imposed on us from family, society etc. as we grow up. Richard Dawkins uses this argument in his book "The God Delusion", and he goes so far as to call it child abuse if children are called Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus etc. But are atheists justified in postulating all this?
