An appropriate answer to his foolish question
Atheist: Why do you believe in God?

If there were no God,there would be no Atheists.
If there were no God,would there be a need for this discussion
Sir Francis Bacon

The Scripture saith, The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God; it is not said, The fool hath thought in his heart; so as he rather saith it by rote to himself, as that he would have, than that he can thoroughly believe it, or be persuaded of it; for none deny there is a God, but those for whom it maketh that there were no God. It appeareth in nothing more that atheism is rather in the lip than in the heart of man by this, that atheists will ever be talking of that their opinion, as if they fainted in it within themselves, and would be glad to be strengthened by the consent of others; nay more, you shall have atheists strive to get disciples, as it fareth with other sects; and, which is most of all, you shall have of them that will suffer for atheism, and not recant; whereas, if they did truly think that there were no such thing as God, why should they trouble themselves?

Ralph Cudworth, The True Intellectual System of the Universe,

Even the Atheists ... readily acknowledge it for an indubitable truth, that there must be something ... which was never made or produced and which therefore is the cause of those other things that are made, something ... whose existence must needs be necessary.... Wherefore all the question now is, what is this ... self-existent thing, which is the cause of all other things that are made. Now there are two grand opinions opposite to one another concerning it; for, first, some contend, that the only self-existent, unmade and incorruptible thing is senseless matter.... But because this is really the lowest and most imperfect of all beings, others on the contrary judge it reasonable, that the first principle and original of all things should be that, which is the most perfect ... not senseless matter, but a perfect conscious understanding nature, or mind. And these are they, who are strictly and properly called Theists, who affirm, that a perfectly conscious understanding being, or mind, existing of itself from eternity, was the cause of all other things; and they, on the contrary, who derive all things from senseless matter, as the first original, and deny that there is any conscious understanding being self-existent and unmade, are those that are properly called Atheists.

If there is no God but there are those that Believe there is then what Bacon bits says is moot.... Atheist are not concerned with a God.... Atheists are concerned with what Believer in God might do in the real world due to living part time in a make believe world....

Sir Isaac Newton

Atheism is so senseless & odious to mankind that it never had many professors. Can it be by accident that all birds beasts & men have their right side & left side alike shaped (except in their bowells) & just two eyes & no more on either side the face & just two ears on either side the head & a nose with two holes & no more between the eyes & one mouth under the nose & either two fore leggs or two wings or two arms on the sholders & two leggs on the hipps one on either side & no more? Whence arises this uniformity in all their outward shapes but from the counsel & contrivance of an Author? Whence is it that the eyes of all sorts of living creatures are transparent to the very bottom & the only transparent members in the body, having on the outside an hard transparent skin, & within transparent juyces with a crystalline Lens in the middle & a pupil before the Lens all of them so truly shaped & fitted for vision, that no Artist can mend them? Did blind chance know that there was light & what was its refraction & fit the eys of all creatures after the most curious manner to make use of it? These & such like considerations always have & ever will prevail with man kind to believe that there is a being who made all things & has all things in his power & who is therfore to be feared.

Guess old Issac never visited the freak show at the carnival.... And never when in much for anatomy since is a rare thing indeed that a person on the planet has two ears the same size, two boob the same size, both eyes the same, or the left side and right side of any part of the human body identical.... It was and is an Idiotic statement on it's face... Issac should stick to apples....

You are confusing the *idea* of a god with the *reality* of a god. The reason there is even a word like "atheism" is because a lot of people believe in god, not because god is real.

Do you see what I mean?

A common quip you hear is that not believing in god is like not collecting stamps. Yet there is no special word for a "non-stamp collector". This is because belief in magic runs deep in humans. Once we evolved the ability to think about other minds besides our own we have had this need for explanations. In the absence of the ability to answer questions, such as why the sun rises, we fill that void of knowledge with the idea of some "other mind" that is beyond humans.

God.

And the idea has been so central to our lives that we have forums like this to argue over it.

If you could show that post, you might just have a point, but as usual, you have accusations with zero evidence.

Or you just think we say what your propaganda tells you we think. At least this is what so many of your answers look like.
