Good question. My answer would be because many humans are afraid, insecure, egotistic, stubborn and unrealistic. Many choose to live in a fantasy world rather than actually face cold facts and live in reality. I've seen these traits displayed by many religious people. Heaven, hell, angels, holy spirits, virgin prizes, original sin, talking snakes, 600 year old men....It really is a quirky thing to believe in any religion.

I cannot prove there are no bright orange flying elephants but I never said there were. It was you that said religious people should face cold hard facts. So start providing them. Oh, you can't huh? Well, ain't that too bad. So I'm supposed to believe you that there is no God just because you say there isn't one? Like cengland0 said, there are more people that believe in a God than atheists so you are the minority if you don't believe in one.

i know you're a toll but here i go anyway: the burden of proof lies on the one making the claim and in the case at hand you are the one making the claim that god exists, therefore you are the one who has to provide the pertinent proof that god exists, otherwise the logical answer would be to dismiss your claim as unfounded in reality. ya fekin atheist troll pretending to be a religious troll, piece of sheit! FU*K YOU!

Excuse me but Guest was claiming that God does not exist so I would then say Guest is the one that needs to provide the proof. Besides, Guest stated there were facts so I want to see them.

guest is dismissing your claim that "god exists" by saying god doesn't exist because you have failed to provide pertinent evidence to support your initial assumption.Unless you can prove god exists, your claim that god does exists will be regarded as "unfounded in reality". the burden of proof lies with you. Ya atheis troll prentending to be a religious troll. FU*K YOU! as for cengfuck, he's a terrorist banker scum, so fu*k him too!
