    Most people who are not religious do not necessarily deny the existence of a God. We just accept the fact that there is no evidence pointing in the direction of an active creator involved in human life as we know it. And by evidence I mean empirical, concrete evidence, not anecdotal miracles, and not pseudo-scientific concoctions.

    It isn't so much unbelief but apathy.  If there is a god, it is so far removed from our biological lifeforms as to be of no consequence to us.  It is obvious that all conceptualizations of a god-creature are the constructs of men.  There is simply no reason to believe any human can know anything concrete about the supernatural so all religious beliefs must be human creations.  Any attempt to link an occult, mythical god-creature with interest and interaction with human life can only be superstition.

    So the bottom line is this: if there is a god, it doesn't care about me and I don't care about it.

    I've read Strobel, and nothing in his work persuades me of his atheism. He reads like an opportunist writing for Christians, or for those who require little convincing.

    A non-believer who changes to become a believer is the same as a believer who becomes a non-believer, it proves absolutely nothing. things seems to be designed because they are made from shapes we know is just a natural order it just means we and the things are the way they are, and not that someone made them. For me god is just a way to put our doubts aside, the fear of the unknown and death. at least this is what i believe, no one can prove there is a god, but no one can prove there isnĀ“t a god.

    Haha, we can doubt anybody who claims "he used to be an Atheist".  Your religious state is all in your mind, it's not testable.  Besides, we in the International Atheist Conspiracy know that new Atheists are subjected to intense North Korean brainwashing techniques.  If their mind ever entertains spiritist thoughts again, they are supposed to stuff marbles up their nose until their brainpan explodes and they are dead.

    The phony arguments of the theists are so amply debunked and have been so for at least 150 years:

    The reasons not to believe are classifed and covered extensively here:

    I believe there is sufficient evidence in our world to prove there is no god. And, I'm talking about the all knowing deity, not the explanation that god is within all of us, because that's not the god religion's believe in, and in that scenario, god could be referred to as anything and the idea of a deity falls apart. But anyway, god as a deity was disproved to me through the very stories that were supposed to prove he existed. No story about god or gods is ever the same. We are constantly changing it to fit whatever we believe in that moment. Don't you think if there was a deity up there in the clouds that he would have remained fairly consistent over the years? Even if you believed that one religion, among who knows how many different ones we have, was the right one from the beginning, it's been corrupted over the generations from human contact, to the point that it is no closer to the word of god than harry potter. The way humans tell stories, coupled with our flawed memories and tendency for embellishment is what proves to me there is no god. Someone invented god to get people to behave (or because they were high) and the whole thing got blown out of proportion.

    Your question essentially states that God exists, which itself can not be proved, and so I think you should change how you choose to ask your questions so you don't cause offence. It is not that I don't believe there isn't a God, it is that I don't believe God exists, which are 2 very different things. The Case for Christ author had clearly never discovered the work of Stephen Hawking upon his attempt to find proof god does not exist.

    Ideally, you only choose to believe that which works in your experience
    and, since everybody's experiences differ, respect the differences in your and your brothers' beliefs.

    Understanding that your beliefs are merely beliefs, you are under no obligation to prove them.  Only share them when you have been asked to.  You may reach out in compassion to shine a light on confusion.

    It is like an opinion.  No one wants to know your opinion because they already think highly of theirs.  When the student is ready, the teacher arrives.
