It just makes so much sense to me...
Why do some people not believe in God?

There's a lot of evidence supporting more science-based theories, like the big-bang, evolution, etc.. Not that those necessarily disprove religion, but you can't disprove what they show.
Religion is 99% based on faith. The more I learn about what various religions teach, in terms of scriptures of just interpretations, the more cultish it sounds. If you believe in fairy-tales, it'll make sense. If you require some grounds to to your faith, religion probably isn't for you.2

I don't know it either. God doesn't make sense to me. I think God is made up by people to answer the questions in life and get rid of their insecurities about why they're on this earth and to give a purpose in life. People like to hold on to something and religion gives that support.
Sounds all good and stuff, but I think it's better to find the answers in life and just get everything out of life right now and not wait till death to make everything better. It holds us back, while we should live forward.
I'm not saying that every religious person is like that. Infact, most people are not like that, but the whole idea of God just doesn't make sense to me. People are like "yeah, I don't believe everything out the bible/koran etc." But what should you believe then?1
I have the highest respect for religions, and people who believe, but I hate the concept of god. I've been through some extremely awful stuff which have almost costed my life ( several times ). And i can't believe there could be an all mighty god who'd let an innocent kid go through all of that hardship...
But if there were an believable scientific explanation, of the existents of God, I'd probably be able to accept it as an alternative.
But I can see how much good religion can do, and how much love it can spread, so i'm happy that people can feel joy of believing. :)0
Because they dont want to and think its fake or something2
cause its a belief not a truth.3
I do not know. But I am totally ok with it. I respect it.0
Are you another jihadi believe what I do an I won't kill you 😴0
Cuz for others it doesn't make that much sense to them...0
Because the let the burden of sim weigh them down. How many sucidal people believe in god. Ps dont say Judas Iscariot0
Some people think, if the God is exists he isn't unfair0

''It just makes so much sense to me...''
So, It makes sense to you that snakes can talk and shit?
So, It makes sense to you that gay people should eternally burn for being BORN gay? Surely if god made people he would have never made them gay?
So, It makes sense to you that innocent children, Who have never ''sinned' are born into poverty and or with life threatining illness's that will lead them to a short life fraught wil debalitating agony and suffering until their inevitable young deaths?
Get fucked... Nothing about the 'God' makes sense, Like all religious people, You were indoctrinated since childhood by your parents / relatives / friends / society into believing this bulshit but you don't know any better as you have been told your entire life thats correct by people you trust.
Just the same way Young germans in 1939 were raised up believing Jews were bad and put into the Hitler Youth and eventually the SS.
Indonctrination of children leads to evil things...5

Because people typically are religious only because their parents were religious and it's become a habit to them, or they actually made it be a part of their "identity" as if your labels were all that much important.
The church is just out there to take people's money. Have you ever checked how much a funeral service costs? It's ridiculous; I'm pretty sure if God existed he would be so stingy that he'd take "the average cost for a funeral in the UK £3,600 (figure correct as of 2015)" to let dead people rise to heaven.
It was designed to seem like it makes sense. Scientology was created to seem like it makes sense, some people willingly give up all their money and their lives for their churches.
Islamists are perfectly okay with forcing their beliefs on their peers and children or otherwise stoning them to death; the only thing that retains the ancient culture codified by religions is the people who don't want to consider the possibility of change. Those who think that their religion is what makes them better as people...
It is odd to me. Is it really your merit that you're following something designed by others, rather than realize what is right and wrong on your own? Why take pride in the morality of others?1

Because people create idols. These idols are made in their image of what perfection would be and start to worship and fear these idols. It becomes apart of them molding who they are and directing their life. It gets to a point where they can not destroy these idols due to the man made fear and power they have given to their own creation. In turn this delusion carries on to rule their self-idolized life.1

Why don't you believe in Krishna or any of the thousands of other gods that people have worshipped or still do worship? Have you given it much thought on why you think yours is more prevalent? It wasn't that long ago in history when most religions were polytheistic. If I was born in Norway during the time of the Vikings I'd be worshipping Odin and Thor and so would you. Beliefs change with the ebb and flow of time especially before the dawn of the printing press.2
It's a belief and not fact. Compared to other scientific theories it is highly unlikely. People evaluate their beliefs, their life and the science they know is true and they find that it just doesn't fit. This is how many have lost their faith (including me :) ) Science that goes against religion seems to fit together so well and makes complete sense, whereas God requires belief without question or facts. You should watch Stephen Fry on God and he speaks about how even if god did exist he'd be an a liar and an asshole.0
Because not believing in god makes a lot of sense to other people my friend.
Bro people will get offended by this question regardless of what they believe but the worst thing is someone who tries to force their beliefs down none believers throats.
I don't believe but I do find all types of relidgon awesome and interesting.
Just don't force it down their throats (this goes for none believers too)0

it must not make so much sense to them0
Just because 'It just makes so much sense' to you doesn't mean that it makes sense to other people nor does it mean that it is true. And seeing as Atheism is the lack of belief in something that cannot be proven it would be a more reasonable question to ask why do most people believe in god.0
I believe in Flying Spaghetti Monster.
I personally met him when I was high.2
If you check out the world and religions and i come with the same conclusion all religions pretty much think they are right and will say their religion can be proved by *insert reason/argument here* but for me personally its not the concept of a god/s that bothers me when it comes to religion its what people do in the game of their ideals and god/s that bothers me and how people use that to validate some awful and morally condemable actions the choose to undertake.0
I dont believe in god and I dont because whydo people believe in a white old man who created things at his whim is beyond me. The concept of god is only believed by the uneducated since anyone who read a few books other than the bible woul at leats begin to question it...0
Well just to confuse things I wonder how anyone can believe that agod exists0
I believe in God, and Jesus Christ Of Nazareth. However I think other Individuals should have the free right to believe in what they really want so you should leave them as they want to be so yeah there is my opinion, and pretty much my cool two cents just down over here for you. :).0
I don't believe in god,,, because When you burn you burn and don't believe in God Or anything,, and then ,, you believe in God just because you family and friends believe in this ,,, actually you don't know if you believe or not,,, you just follow this way.0
Because their is next to zero convincing evidence of God (s) existence, belief in God is based on faith not fact.0
If God is in all of us does that make him bisexual?0
Some people myself included live based on knowledge and not feelings or faith.0
It makes no sense to me how anyone believes in a god they have zero proof of.0
Lol you're starting a big post..0
Because life already fucked me enough times to make me believe there's such thing as a god -.-0
I am not in the mood of argue with infidels.0
Because it's just object for MANIPULATING people, sad.0
Well... different people, different views.0
