Excellent question. After much thought, I cannot come up with any facts that disprove the existence of God. How could God not exist? We are here.
1. If an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent god exists, then evil does not.
2. There is evil in the world.
3. Therefore, an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent God does not exist.
The evidence for number 1 is the fact that the premise and conclusion are not in contradiction. If 1+2 =3, then omnibenevolent=NO EVIL. Do you have an explanation to prove that 1+ 2 does not equal 3?
In order for 1. to be true you need to prove there is no good reason God might have for temporarily permitting suffering in the world.
Are you just flat out ignoring the definition of the prefix *Omni*
Omni means ALL. As in infinite. The fact is that you need to prove how your god can be omniscient omnipotent and omnibenevolent, yet somehow contradict his own nature. Doesn't add up.
If God has a GOOD, legitimate reason for temporarily permitting suffering there is no contradiction in his nature.
The human imagination. We've created so many gods and goddesses that they've begun to lose their credibility. You or I could make up a new deity, write a book about it and self publish it on the internet. That new god would then have the same level of believability as every other god in human history. The only difference is how old they are and how popular they became.
How does this prove God does not nor cannot exist?
Because we (humans) are the narrators of history and mythology. The concept of god has only ever been presented by us and it's unverifiable with impartial sources. If we say the unverifiable exists, then everything we imagine also exists.
Does this mean, then, that all history is merely mythology?
History is often mythologized, but parts can still be verified. Usually, if multiple different people wrote about the same event, we can cross reference them to make a clearer picture. But, even then, history is still a human narrative.
There are no facts to show god (I am assuming it is one of the popular ones) does not exist.
you are asking for evidence to a negative which cannot be given in a scientific setting. I could ask you for imperical evidence that Odin does not exist, and you will not be able to provide it. Does that mean that Odin exists? The problem for you is that you are the one making the positive statement, so it is you that has to prove something like a supernatural being exists. Of curse you cannot prove it because god does not exist anywhere that can be measured
I suppose that as a race we are limited in our knowledge and understanding - whatever evidence we have so far is not conclusive and all you can do is weigh it up and make a leap of faith.

Why is it an acceptable answer for atheists to merely say "God didn't do it" when believers are expected to be held to a higher standard of proof when saying that God did do it?

I can understand the positives of putting your faith in such and such religion, which is why I do not think religion as a whole should be completely eradicated, however in this day and age I honestly wouldn't mind if it was.My question is this: why does religion NEED to exist? If you say "So...

After all the claims made by biblical religionists that the biblical god is all of the above, none of this god's actions seems to fit these lofty roles. For example, the biblical god has to be worshiped, which hardly seems to be an omni-anything trait and not worthy of any leader of men. I decided...

That's the typical Sam Harris argument. How does suffering negate God's existence? Maybe He's just watching. It doesn't mean He doesn't exist and for anyone to bring up suffering as proof of no God is indication of a logical fallacy.

Does anyone have any evidence for the existence of God?I am an atheist, which to me only means that I haven't been shown requisite evidence to convince me of an omnipotent, all-knowing deity of any kind. If you would, please bring forth this evidence and deliver me from a fiery...

If there is a God, Why can we not see Him?Iwould first like to remove one misconceptionwhich commonly besets people with regard tothe existence of God. If there is a God, why arewe not able to see Him? This is hardly a newquestion, and we have heard it from timeimmemorial. The Holy Quran tells us...
