Default Is the Thumb a Finger?

serisouly, this question has been out there forever. My choice would be yes. The reason most people dont calsify it as one is because you have the pinky finger, ring finger, middle finger, index finger, then thumb. It doesnt have finger in the name therefore it isnt a finger. Well what i see wrong with this statement is, if that is your logic then listen to this. Zebra doesnt have animal in the name but its still an animal. Pikachu doesnt have pokemon in the name but its still a pokemon. I could go on and on. We were designed with 10 fingers, so thumb counts.

Whats your view?

And just how many animals or pokemon have that in there names either?

The thumb is a digit, not a finger. The thumb has two parts, while the others have three.

It depends on how you define a finger. If you mean something that can move on your own that sticks out of your palm and is made out of yourself, then it is a finger. And I don't mean implants.

[Dumb Logic]It's attached to your hand, therefore I find It to be a finger just as much as the other four.[/Dumb Logic]

The thumb is an opposable digit. Not a finger.

No, because it doesn't have 2 joints like the rest of the fingers.

Yes, it's a finger.

It's posable, it's bendable, and most people were born with it. The scientist had a good point, too.

Sooo, what exactly IS a digit, then?
