What are the top 3 reasons you are not religious?

Updates:
So far i am seeing some interesting things.

1. People relate being religious to the actions of people in the name of religion and not the values of a religion.

2. Christian beliefs is the standard to define religion and practices of religion.

3. People claim they only do things that make sense.

  • Because Homo sapien is just another animal living on a tiny planet called Earth in a galaxy called Milky Way. We are more civilized and have more complex social structures than untamed beasts, but we're still animals. We were evolved from other species, and we will keep evolving.

    According to Hubble's Law, the space is keep expanding exponentially, and there is no way of knowing that we humans are the only species in this entire universe. And yet, all religions claim that we are with 100% confidence. There are STARS in other galaxies that are 1000x larger than the sun. There are blackholes in this universe that are hundreds of thousands times larger than our GALAXY. It's impossible that we are the only life.

  • Reason 1) my mom is Jewish and my pop is agnostic.. I grew up with confused values.
    Reason 2) Most religions (if not all of them) are too hard to commit to entirely.
    Reason 3) I have my own perspective of the world, God and life after death, I prefer to make my own opinion instead of following what other people say.

  • My main reason is how when I was growing up, I had many friends from different religions who would invite me to their churchs. I went and saw different sides of each religion and then when I took time to look at my own beliefs, it just didn't add up to me and I just became a very confused child. I'm a curious person and love to learn. I just think its impossible for one religion to be more "true" than another so thats why even though my family is Catholic, my beliefs are more Agnostic.

    And 3. Because I like to sleep in on Sundays

  • Honestly, I almost got bullied out of religion. College campuses are very hostile if you're religious (unless you're Muslim). Even when I identified as a Christian, I had to hide so that I wouldn't harassed too often.

    • Why is it not realistic?

    • Because they believe in omnipotent mythological creature.

  • All organised religious leaders are outdated mysoginists.
    There is no proof of any deity.
    The planet and everyone on it evolved, from something!
