    Default Why are atheists obsessed with God?

    If you dont believe,why do you ask believers questions?

    If God doesnt exist, why do you ask so many questions about God's existence?

    Why is the topic of God always a hot one to atheists?

    Just curious....

    Maybe this post would have been more useful in Mr. Noodles thread? I am assuming this question has come from his latest thread?

    Im sure he would appreciate your directness and honesty if your question was derived from his thread.

    I hope you get what your looking for

    For me it is to try and understand why people pray and why they believe. Do people have to believe in god to get on with life, is it fear I have no idea. No matter how much information that I get from people I don't understand and don't think that I ever will.

    I went to church from when I was a baby until I was 13 so I do know a bit about the bible.



    I am sure that when Mr Noodle finds this he will be able to explaine better than I can.

    I completly agree with the others. It is simply trying to understand WHY.

    I'm a science nerd (in particular biology), I need proof. I can't make myself believe there's a being out there noone can see who controls everything, it just seems silly, so WHY do so many believe? Is there something they were told I wasn't?

    Yes!! We have been more than told, God has proven himself to us sorry that you haven't seen Him yet, but He will show you if you ask Him genuinely


    I don't mean to offend your intelligence or anything like that, but the truth is no-one can understand why we believe unless they have seen and tasted Him for themselves

    Just curious what you mean when you say "seen"?

    My meaning of seen or seeing is I saw my dog chew a bone.. Like physically I can reach out and touch my dog and the bone. Is this what you mean? That you have seen god?

    I have seen visions with my mind which have been confirmed by others at the same time. Also I have seen Him move, much like you can't actually see the wind, but you can see its effect on things. I'm happy to go into more specifics if you want them

    Did anyone see that documentary recently on SBS which told the story of the head of the Athiests of the USA?
    No, I didn't - when was it on? Sounds interesting.

    Well I watched it and I have no problem with her either...her "cause" is no different to the cause of "door knockers" (do they have a proper name...missionaries??)

    Anyway let the faithful have faith in peace and let the un-faithful (hehehe )...have no faith in peace...

    Geez that was a mouthful...I think you get what I mean though...
