Because in numerous places the bible/quran/torah lie in direct contradiction with scientific and historic evidence, and have no evidence of their own whatsoever.
Then we have different priorities. And drunkenness doesn't change reality, it just makes it more fun
Also, I dunno, personally I'd rather settle for a falsehood if it made me happier. I'd rather live my life happy, in a delusion. Much rather. (maybe that's why I like getting drunk on occasion XD)

Also, i think people go into too much detail about this whole idea.
Has anyone ever considered that maybe some things cannot be explained by science or the human brain, who said the function of the human brain was limitless?
Scientists have theories that there are paralell universes through an exploding star which turns into a black hole..how are we ever going to prove that? At the end of the day we probably can't.
Just as IF God exists, we can't prove that.
Maybe we should stop searching for answers that arn't supposed to be found.

A) Sorry if you found my response distasteful, but you said itself, it's not a convincing argument. Finding images of god in the charring on cheese on toast or, in this case, finding a fish in milk, is one of the worst evidences that can possibly be posited. I just thought I'd use you bringing it up as an opportunity to introduce some comic relief into the thread [=

There really is no need for cynical comments.
If you want to say God doesn't exist. Go and ****ing prove it.
Otherwise what leg do you honestly have to stand on.
B) I don't need to prove god doesn't exist, burden of proof lies with the side making the positive claim, that is the theists claiming existence. Until such evidence is provided atheists are justified in rejecting your assertion.
