Why don't people believe in God?

if it were even the slightest possible chance that there is a hell and its a place of everlasting torment and hate wouldnt you want to make sure there isnt one by checking every possible source of information and proof that God does not exist or does?

And why do most people who ask themselves this question and go search for answers come back a christian?

yeah the whole idea can be denied with logical reasoning but you got to look at where this idea came from and how much we can trust this information. When you search for those facts they cant be denied and once you experience what God does in your life you will know its real. If you dont believe in it you should have proof andt the strongest possible evidence of everything that cant be denied.

I want to look at what you guys think and why you guys don't. Please dont attack other peoples ideas and thought and be open with every ounce of reasoning you can come up with.

    Apr 1 2011: Okay let's assume that the idea of God was even a valid arguement.

    Tell me, TEDders: Which is a more beutiful world:

    World A
    In this world every single choice made is made by one person and one person alone. This person may love you, but he or she doesn't allow you to speak for yourself, allow you to celebrate your victories, allow you to spread ideas without being condemed. But he or she loves you!

    World B
    In this world every single choice made is made by one person and one person alone. This person is you. You are allowed to take on any challenge, allowed to express your opinions with your equals, allowed to learn your own talents, allowed to fix your own problems, allowed to celebrate your own victories, allowed to live. And nothing matters in this world for you.

    The beauty of it is, you can live in either world in your mind.

      Apr 4 2011: World B is the life God made for us. He lets you take on your own challenges and express your ideas and every thought. You have many, too much, misconceptions about this religion

        Apr 5 2011: Drew, let's assume you are right and God made this world (only this world or the universe ?).
        What do you think was his ultimate goal in doing so ? What purpose does it serve ?

        • Apr 8 2011: The church does not teach that aliens cannot exist. They have never said that. It is left up to the individual to decided on that matter.

      "This person may love you, but he or she doesn't allow you to speak for yourself,"

      Come on Tyler, he allowed us to torture & kill him. If that isn't liberal enough I don't know what is.

      :-)
