Logic and the lack of meaningful evidence. Sure you can believe in the Bible if you want. You could also believe in the Koran, the Talamud, the Rosetta Stone, Confucianism, Greek myths, Roman myths, Mayan scripts or any other arbitrary ancient text from the days when superstition predominated. But why would you? Because you were raised that way? Poor reason.
Why does it matter? When people ask me why don't I believe, they ask me where I think the world came from. Why does this matter? How would knowing the origin of the world help me to become happier about it? It wouldn't. After all, I wouldn't care how my parents were created; I'd still enjoy them regardless. With this being said, why should you care? People don't believe simply because there's no reason to.
This is something that just astounds me. Zeus shows his power by casting down lightning and so very few people believe in him! I guess they just believe that there are scientific reasons for things that happen and can't belief in fables and folklore to base their morals around....

Using God as an explanation for whatever you need explained doesn't help. In fact, eliminating God simplifies things a great deal. Reality is rough, but it could have been worse. We could have been faced with reality in all its roughness PLUS a God who made it that way.
You find that even Christians are more satisfied with answers science provides. "God"-provided answers offer no consolation (nor any of the "Aha!" moments we all treasure) whatsoever.
They don't want to be accountable for there actions in life.it's easier no rules,no morals,to me life doesn't make sense with out God,with God things tend fall into place,having faith is trusting in God,and faith puts things in motion.
