Its like the tooth fairy but for adults. Religous people are so afraid that life has no meaning they create a world in which they feel controlled and layed out. Their afraid and feel they need constant reasurance that they are not alone. That there is a higher power other than human.
So many contradicions. Also the fact that alot of religious people believe they are better people than atheists disgusts me. In my opinion religion is holding our civilization back, we should aim for knowledge, to discover everything that there is too discover. We should all put our faith in science, things that are actually proven to work, not the hope that there is some bearded man (or maybe bearded woman lol who knows) up there helping us.
Anyway if there was a god, which of course there obviously isn't but if there was, maybe we should rebel against it. He is obviously a bad person for needing his son to be killed to have a second chance and all the bad things he's done to the human race of the years, he must be evil. Having one person or thing in power isn't right, dictatorships should be shunned upon. And also, this month he tried to ethnically cleanse all the Haitians from the planet. What a bad guy.
A better question would be fore christians, why do you believe in there is a god? Or maybe, why don't you think god is a muslim or another religion because there are thousands of religions.
No evidence, common sense, plus if "god" was real and he's supposed to be oh so nice there would not be all this crap in the world.
Many reasons, including this.
Most religions, if not all, are wrong. They cannot all be right.
Why bank your chances on one?
That's probably not the main reason though.
As others have said, there is no reason nor evidence for a God.
A few Aesop's Fables-style stories aren't going to convince me.
I don't necessarily not believe in a God (although I am very doubtful.) However, if there is a God I don't believe that it is anything like the God religions preach about.
no evidence. and bible is contradictory and evil. if people think its a good form of moral guidance then those people are very stupid.
