Message Subject Simple Question: if you do not believe in God, why don't you?
Poster Handle Wurzel
Post Content
I don't believe in God because I have no reason to. There is no evidence to suggest that such a being exists.

I also don't believe in the Hindu pantheon, for exactly the same reason.

Ditto for every other proposed deity that claims to be the only True way to see the world. There isn't any reason to believe it, unless you choose to have faith in it. I don't.

The universe is a wondrous place that I want to explore and understand; the frameworks of physics, biology and everything else are utterly fascinating, and the world of the mind is equally intriguing (if more ambiguous). Simply Choosing one deity or another to believe in, as if that creation story explains it all, is just avoiding the most interesting questions... and is basically a cop-out. As well as completely pointless, because the odds are stacked heavily against it being right.

Simple Question: what reason would be enough for you to believe in God? a

Are you waiting for him to appear?
 Quoting: Masiro®

I suppose an actual manifestation might do it, in the same way that meeting a kelpie would convince me that they existed as well. It would have to be something unambiguous, though, because otherwise, even if there was some demonstration of immense otherworldly power, how would one would which suggested deity (if any) was responsible?

No, I'm not waiting. Why would I be? I assume that you don't believe in Zeus, so are you waiting for him to turn up as well? Your beliefs don't bother me, and your particular choice of deity has no interest for me. I know some people think their beliefs should be important for other people who don't share them, but I'm afraid it's just not true.
