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.

  • Jul 6 2011: The Truth is that the answers to life's questions are Spiritual because we are spiritual beings. We can only answer these questions in the spirit realm. God is a Spirit and the problem is that people try to understand God with their "natural" minds and try to see evidence with a natural eye. The natural mind/eye and the physical world is limited to what we can see/taste/touch/smell/hear in this dimension. The Truth of God is ALWAYS revealed. It can be spoken to others through witnessing (which merely means standing as an eye-witness to the works of God) about the evidence of the spiritual realm (which always manifests itself in the natural realm). The substances of this world (Earth, stars....) are made from a Spritual World (GOD). So, the bottom line is this. Stop trying to rationalize God. It's like trying measure the height of Mount Everest with a graduated cyliner or even a 12 inch ruler at best. It's NOT possible. And the fact that people refuse to accept that their graduated cylinder/ruler is not good enough is evidence of PRIDE which will result in spiritual blindness. Pride is the confession that "you" are your own god and God won't even try to compete with you. He just won't. God won't force you to love Him. But He will plead with you to open your heart to the Truth so that He will reveal it to you.
