  • Because it no longer makes any sense to me.

  • There are many explanations of our existence. Science says that when you prove something wrong, people have to accept it, and the new truth is the new science. Religion says that when you prove something wrong, people are so scared by their position being threatened that they're willing to murder you to keep the truth from getting out.

    In that sense, science is like a bolshy kid who knows more than their parent. And religion is like a child being raped by their parent and told to keep quiet.

  • Why don't you tell us why you don't believe in the thousands of other gods and supernatural entities humankind has thought up, and then explain why your god is different?

      • You mean the story of Jesus being resurrected? Well, that's just a 2000-year-old story. To adapt my original question, why would you take that story seriously (you're going so far as to give it the status of evidence) and not take seriously all the other stories about the thousands of other gods and supernatural entities humankind has thought up?

  • I'm Agnostic. If a higher spiritual power exists, it certainly doesn't fit the ancient fabled scriptures of the world's main religions. Mathematics, physics, ethics, and cosmology give me comfort. I am expecting some sort of consciousness after my death, but I have no clue, nor do I think anyone can say what it will be.

  • Because there's a lot of scientific evidence and philosophical arguments that contradict the "holy books" and prove its just a bunch of bullshit written by men thousands of years ago..

  • I don't believe in God as a deity because I have no logical reason to. A god is a concept held by many religions that embody ideals and aren't any more real to me then characters in a book. I simply haven't found a deity watching over me necessary to live my life. If I ever found the force that created everything, I wouldn't worship it. I would just appreciate it for what it was.

  • The universe and whats in it, is to perfect for there not to be a creator.

    If i told you i was walking one day, then suddenly i saw materials from the ground come in front of me and formed into a car. You would think im mad right?

    The universe is way more complicated then a car - so to believe the universe came into existence by luck/randomness is even more far-fetched then the above.

    • And a thinking god would be more complex than the universe. Who created your god?

    • Agree 100% Reelist! God/Jesus is real, just because you don't want to worry about your misdeeds and the lack of a personal relationship with Him don't mean you get to escape it. Not a scare tactic. Just Truth!

    • The old Paley's watch argument. I presume you're familiar with the flaws of it?

      The weakness of this argument is revealed by the fact that it can be used to argue to very opposite: the universe is too 'perfect' to have been created. Which is equally weak. First of all, because it isn't perfect; it's chaotic and imperfect. Secondly, because what you mean by perfect is actually complexity, which is entirely subjective. And the nail in the coffin is that evolution explains complexity perfectly well.

  • God is an explanation to the unknown. The less you know of the world, the more you believe in God.

  • I believe in God, but I don't believe in the bible. The bible says some really terrible things.

  • Since I don't have relative proof of this nameless diety existing I'll remain impartial. Besides that, religion or as much as I've seen is the manipulation of young minds so that they can be molded into what older people want based on a constant state of fear.

    And then there's the fact that most of the religious people I've personally known are obvious hypocrites who look down on anyone who doesn't agree completely with their way of thinking. Then the cycle goes on with the next generation and so on.

  • I don't not believe in God. I'm an agnostic who frequently finds myself having mental debates as to whether some sort of higher power exists. I used to be an atheist, and pegged the idea of 'God' as ridiculous and impossible. These days I'm not so sure. I want to believe in God, mostly for peace of mind with regards to death, but I just don't know whether to or not.

  • Why believe in something written in a book thousands of years ago when supernatural thinking was the thing. They believed that thunder storms were caused by God being angry etc. I agree with with unseriousness that none of know. Anyone who claims to know what happens after death or if there is a God is a fool.
