I don't choose to ignore the possibility of a god. I have considered it very, very thoroughly for decades. This website and others have proven to me that I am far more familiar with the contents of the bible than most Christians and that the overwhelming majority of Christians are completely ignorant about who wrote the bible, what other religions believe and of the entire field of philosophy.
I am also continually amazed that the delight with which Christians - supposedly a loving and forgiving people - condemn everyone else and tell us we're going to hell. I am dismayed at the endless lies Christians tell about science, about atheists and about other religions.
There is absolutely no evidence for any god, never mind the Christian god specifically. None. There are endless contradictions in every holy text. Christians have split into a thousand factions who disagree on fundamental issues.
There is absolutely no reason for anyone with a brain or any kind of moral compass to give any kind of credence or respect to religion.
