Faith the is substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
Have you ever seen the space shuttle in the sky? but you believe it's there, right? you don't need proof.

The Shuttle program has been retired for some time now. No, none of 'em are up at the moment.

Yah, I've seen almost every Shuttle launch in the past about 13 years. Right from my front balcony, most of 'em.
That's a completely unmistakable craft - so yes, I've known when quite a few of 'em were up.

I could hear 'em coming down, too, when the took the Western landing approach.

This guy is right, God is real! Who would make up something like that?! there is not any reason not to believe! I, for one, am a believer!
Can you prove God is real?

In case you have not noticed this thread is titled "Why do people not believe in God?" In other words,it exists so that non believers like myself may explain why we disbelieve.

Belief without prove is why so many people fall victim to scams.

B.) No, it's the smart people who realize that they have better things to do with their lives than waste it by lowering themselves to the level of a puppet over a pathetically half-assed fairy tale.

there is no "if" in my faith, but there sure are a lot of holes in you science.
Apparently there *is* a "if" to your faith. You're the one claiming that "God is NOT your slave and servant," when your Bible very clearly states that true believers will have their requests/prayers/whatever-you- want-to-call-them answered. You then try to backpedal by claiming that the "if" is the big word of the sentence, the if being applied to the person's faith.

And you'll find that science is far sturdier than your faith is. Ignorance won't topple science, and truth is not a democracy. You *have,* however, proven that you're far too ignorant to comprehend the vast majority of science. Hell, you can't even comprehend your own Bible.

Reason people don't believe in God is because so called religeous people are willing to go to war,kill and do all other unspeakable acts and yet still maintain they are Christian/Muslim etc.their Of course any sensible person would realise that these are just wicked people and have nothing whatever to do with God but I'm sure their hypocrisy puts many people off.

I used to believe everything I was told, including believing in God; but then people told me to stop believing everything I'm told and to use the brain that God gave me to think for myself.

So I did, and now I'm an atheist.

The irony is almost palpable.

The irony is funny actually because I was brought to church when I was young and my grandmother used to talk to me about god but now that I'm older and I see what religion does to the human race and some of the stories that are in the bible I see how things really are.

Your God-Given brain helps you to understand and to find out what the will of God is.
but you need to follow your heart not your brain.

One minor flaw in your statement.

You claim to be an atheist.

Atheists do not believe in God.

But you stated "God" gave you a brain.

Oh the humiliation of such a blunder!!!

[QUOTE who="Seentheotherside]Ath eists do not believe in God.[/QUOTE]I don't. Not any more.

[QUOTE who="Seentheotherside]But you stated "God" gave you a brain.[/QUOTE]No, I sad that they told me to use the brain that God gave me. I did not say that he actually did.

Massive FAIL on your part.

People should be ruled by logic not emotions.. My "God given" brain tells me to challenge accepted beliefs and to look for solid proof.
