I never really thought about it, but I would say yes.

Never. D:

Even if I found the third knuckle on mine, I still don't think that it is a finger because it's an extension of the hand. And some mammals don't have opposable thumbs, so it isn't a finger because of this strong statement. xP

No. Fingers have an extra joint. If you had a hand of all thumbs, you'd be in trouble.

I'd say yes. And I have found the third knuckle on my thumb. It's near the wrist.

God created us with ten fingers not eight and two thumbs... and NOT six fingers, two thumbs, and two pinkies.

I believe it comes down to whether a person whats to call it a thumb or a finger.
Although it is different to other fingers I suppose if it is still on your hand and it does the exact same thing as a finger then I say yes it is a finger.

It comes down to personal belief and I doubt there is a right or wrong in this case.

I suppose that logically it is; the thumb to your fingers = your big toe to your toes.
