    Isn't it crazy to believe in someone that doesn't exist though?

    Wanting to believe in something is different to actually, genuinely believing in it. If there is no evidence for something it is illogical to do anymore than speculate its existence, let alone worship it.

    stupidity
    That's kind of a rush, emotional, risky, blanket judgmental opinion there, don't you think?

    Because people want to have someone, something, to look up to. They want the structure and authority of a relgion. It's an investment in their future. At least that's my opinion on many people who become religious today.

    Note I said many, not all.

    I'd say the other factors in my original answer are perhaps bigger culprits, stupidity is definitely up there though...

    I'm going to add naivety to the list as well.

    I agree there's a difference between wanting to believe it (say because you think its "right" to) and actually believing it. I'm not remotely religious but I accept that people are. They all will presumably have their own reasons, maybe they thought they saw some miracle when they were 7 or something haha, but I don't understand why people get so worked up if people are religious.Why is it necessarily illogical? If worshipping a god brings someone happiness or makes them feel good then why should they stop?

    There is a line, of course. If say creationism gets in the way of hard scientific facts then fair enough but as far as I am aware no-one has proven that a god, or gods, do not exist?

    This is why I remain agnostic.

    There is also no evidence that a flying spaghetti monster doesn't exist.

    What the point of anything if there's no God. Everything you love is going to die, there's no right or wrong and your an utterly meaningless speck upon the universe. OP what's the point of this thread, everyone who see's this is going to forget about it in a couple minutes anyway.
