If you are atheist...

Why do you not believe in God? I know atheism is the belief that there is no god, but just for the sake of the conversation I'm talking about the christian God. Was it a circumstance that changed your mind or was that the way you were raised? I'm not asking to start an argument. I'm just curious really. I was raised as a christian and was forced to go to church. Every service, every week. I'm on the fence about it. Part of me wants to cling to my roots and believe that he exists and part of me says he does not exist. I've always felt out of place at church and honestly don't feel anything when i pray. I also don't believe in the bible. To me it's way too contradictory and outdated.

No circumstances. Just logic.

There is no evidence to suggest the existence of a god or supernatural being.

That's how my cousin is. And that's why I'm torn. Logic and research tells me he's not real, but for some reason I can't just dismiss that there is something "bigger" out there.

An imaginary man in the sky that created people out of sand and rib?  I'll believe that when I can fly my unicorn to the store.

I was raised by an atheist and an agnostic, so I never really went to church. Honestly when I was introduced to religion(s) as an adult and read the bible/Koran it just seemed fantastical and ridiculous. Kind of like taking a greek mythology class would be to most current day Christians.

That's why I don't believe in it. My mom is deeply religious and believes the bible is a guide for our lives. I'm just like, how?? It was written forever ago and by man. How can it possible pertain to our times and be a guide book for that matter? No thank you!
