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 13 2011: There are too many reasons why i dont believe in god. The first reason is that there is so much scientific proof for evolution that the idea of a god that created the world in 6 days is just rediculous. There is also much scientific proof that the earth doenst exist for 6000 years but for more then 4 bilion years. Also the idea that homosexuals choose for their sexuals orientation is scientific wrong. Every scientist know that the sexual orientation of people begins when they arent born yet.

    Also a reason for me to not believe in god is that the normal American believes for like 95 % in god but the top of their scientist just for 7% and in the UK even less, 3%. Intelligence correlates positives with less dogmatich believe in god.

    For people who still in doubt, read the book from Richard dawkins god's delusion. He describes so many reasons why the existence of god is not very likely.
