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 4 2011: My other question is this, why is god not talking to his beleivers like he did the those that wrote the books of the bible? And maybe he is, have you seen the guys walking down the street talking to themselves we dismiss as crazie. Well maybe they are the new apostles? Why are they crazie what if they are having a divine moment. Or maybe they are crazie, and what if maybe just maybe all those years ago before we understood mental disorders these people that god spoke to and wrote the bilble were also crazy, they just didn't know it? IF you are willing to beleive that a man a few thousand years ago was talked to by god but call people today who say that they killed for god crazy, what is the difference?
