Why you don't believe?


Recommended Posts

As a Christian, I want to ask those who don't believe in God, why they don't believe, what encourages or pushes them to not believe? What is the exact reason why they don;t believe?

Are their reasons completely enough to firmly hold their positions?

Before holding their position, did they think first?

Did they balance things first?

Are they able to check their own selves or hear their own inner selves before deciding to hold their postions?

 

I am curious about this....

Feedbacks are very much appreciated. Thank You...

Why should I believe?

 

This answer is a escaping answer. What is the reason, why you should not believe?

Suppose you believe in god. Do you have any evidence to show His presence? By evidence I mean scientific evidence.

 

The evidence so far is the beginning of the universe where the pre-bigbang moment is a complete nothingness

I believe the bible is trying to teach contentment and that god is a teaching aid, and a comfort for those who can't find peace; when one is content/peaceful god is no longer required; that's why I don't believe.

No evidence. Not a shred that suggests a supernatural explanation is needed, ever.

 

That, and the fact that over 9000 versions of Christianity alone exist, each claiming to be true. That kind of con game is easily recognized.

If you believe there's nothing to lost instead there is something added to your life. As I study science, I don't see science contradicted the existence of God, instead it shouts out that there is a God.

Is this directed at me or Phi?

Science doesn't contradict the existence of your god because it's unobservable. That precludes science from being a tool that can help in these instances. Can you understand that? Science needs to deal with reality or it's not effective.

Probe your own body thru a microscope and you will see cells with complexities. Little machineries which defies evolution. As well in the universe. Infinitude of stars you will see at night, where you could probably wonder what is the source of their unfaltering energy.

M. Laplace, they tell me you have written this large book on the system of the universe, and have never even mentioned its Creator.'

I had no need for that hypothesis

No, it doesn't defy evolution.

No, we have a good understanding of the source of the energy.

We seem to have a pattern here. Perhaps you need to study science a bit more. It might help you better understand why many atheists here take the position they do.

Many revised theories had been proposed in the pre-bigbang moment, Vilenkin's model have flaws and other competing models. For example the multiverse theory of Alan Guth. The problem of this theory is where is the source of the energy fueling the multiverse came from? And if it is only from nothingness, how come nothingness produce something?

Why should belief be the default?

I'm asking you what is the reason it is not the default?

I don't believe in god(s) for the same reason I don't believe in the tooth fairy or in santa claus. There's really no simpler way for me to explain it.

 

Do you ever listen to your own self when you are alone and solitary?

I don't know.

I don't know. And neither do you. We can only guess.

 

But...

 

You seem to be implying that our lack of knowledge must be filled by God.

No different than when we didn't understand how lightening worked we also assumed it must be from Thor.

This is one of the reasons I am an atheist. You are jumping to the exact same conclusions that people have made for thousands of years, and like them, you believe that THIS TIME you got it right.

I have yet to see any compelling reason to believe.

Some people did not believe because they did not see. Are their really sure what they can't see really don't exist?

Consider for example radio waves. You can't see but you know it exist.

Of course, and rather frequently, but I'm also intelligent enough to know that there is almost certainly no actual "god" there in that space. It's basically me talking to myself, much like you and other theists are when you "think" you're talking to "god(s)."

Firstly, evidence against the big bang is not evidence of a Christian God or any God at all. Secondly, I find the "the source of energy" argument against specific theories contradictory to the notion of God because if God exists what is its "source of energy".
