Message Subject I'm an Atheist. Why should I believe in a god? Which god? and why?

How can an atheist, be 100% certain, that there's no God,

when there's no 100% proof, that life originated from inorganic matter, or abiogenesis?

The current best 'proof' of abiogenesis, is that liposomes, havw an auto-catalytic nature.

However even then, lipsomes, comes from something, that's already alive, the cell membrane.

Since you capitalized the word God I am assuming you are specifically referring to the God of the Bible that Created the world in 6 days according to his absolute Word written down.

That's rather easy.

The Bible cannot be the inerrant word of God because, well, it contains lies and inconsistencies and doesn't prove jackshit.

If you rephrased your statement as to how atheists can be 100% certain there isn't anything that we would describe as godlike then I agree with you.

But that doesn't give any credence to your creation myth.

That I am an atheist does not mean I am as convinced that abiogenesis started life on Earth as you are certain that the God of the Bible exists.

I can safely say I am not certain, although I do think it is by far the most likely option.

Finally someone who's an atheist and well spoken. Would you be willing to expand upon why are an atheist and what is the basis for believing that? You don't have to be apologist for the movement, but you could provide some clarity here. You sound educated, so that's always welcome in these kinds of discussions.

I'm sincere, because as an intellectual, I enjoy meeting people with other ideas and cultures.

I'm an atheist because I don't have faith in Islam, Christianity, Buddhism or any other religion I am familiar with.

In general religions have roughly equal value to me (although fundamentalists can go die in a fire as far as I'm concerned), I don't see why people looking for metaphysical answers to life can arrive at such different answers while being absolutely certain they are correct while all others are wrong. The only conclusion I can make is that all are wrong.

What's worse with for example Christianity specifically is that a lot of people are claiming open your heart to god (blablablabla) and you will get the answers. Yet somehow the answers that Christians as a whole have received over the last 2000 years caused Christianity to splinter into thousands of denominations that again can't all be correct. So either you believe that the vast majority of Christians are misled when they received "answers from God" or you can conclude it doesn't work like that.

There are more reasons though, but those are kinda the fundamentals.
