.... Doubt. Everyone soon becomes doubtful about something, in some cases religions and other cases reality. I doubt reality.

If they decide that there is no God,they think they won't feel so guilty about the things they are doing.

Atheists don't just have an "anything goes" mentality. We have ethics and morals.
Report as
Children will label themselves as any thing, if it makes the guilt go away.

Because we can believe and not believe anything we desire to.

It's the natural progression of advanced society. As civilizations become more educated the less they turn to the supernatural for answers. The US is actually one of the more religious nations in the industrialized world, but even we are becoming less and less each generation, around 5% more claim none or not practicing. At this rate the US will be mostly secular by the end of this century.

It's the lose of community, our society is moving more toward the individual. We are gathering on the internet more then the town hall and as such we have less social pressure from friends and family to conform. We are free to find our own way through this world.

Many reasons. Some have a sort of logic and want more proof. Others do it to be rebellious. Some from personal experiences and not getting any sort of help by a higher power.

Hard to say, but most atheists become such because there is no evidence for the existence of gods.

Do you go to a secular school? Each generation is getting worse when it comes to God. Families don't spend time together or go to church together, let alone read the bible or pray together. The next generation hardy knows anything about God, then the next generation just doesn't care. And, they don't want to be accountable. I think it's only less than 5% of people in the U.S. that go to church.

They have reached the age to want to sin. If you drop religion they think there is no consequences.

It is inevitable. Religions die out after a while. The same reason we don't follow Greek or Norse gods anymore. All religions have a shelf life.

The spirit clearly says that in the latter times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.They will turn their ears away form the truth and turn aside to myths

Because of my friends at ask.com and many other sites working hard to stamp out the plague beetle that is religiousness. We are becoming enlightened and many of us are willing to drive the point all the way home until god leaves for good.
