In today's society no one exactly has an understanding of God otherwise they would believe.. A believer's duty as a follower is supposed to testify of The Lord since he will not reveal himself,, yet.. He will,, but not yet
People don't believe in god because there isn't any scientific proof that he exists.. So based on their theory of that, they only believe in things that can be proven to be there.. They don't believe in him because they can't see him, touch him, or hear him... Now, people believe in god because they have faith. They know that god is real and they base their life on him. They believe that he is the reason for which we wake up everyday and are alive. People also believe in god because he has done miracles in their lives. It's based on themselves and what they believe to be true. It's their own independent thoughts. We can't so anything to make them believe or not believe. We all decide for ourselves.

Free will, or, God hasn't revealed Himself to them yet. My personal favorite, they justify the things they do. The further away from God the easier it is. The further away they are the Holy spirit isnt you telling you that's not good. Sleep around, steel, sleep with married people. Me me me. Do whatever feels good in the prusuite of happiness. Which just leaves a path of destruction and hurting people who love you. Hey, who cares...do drugs have kids with different men or women so your kids can grow up in a split home. Non respect for themselves much less others. See if they believed in God, they have to believe in hell. Somewhere deep inside they know. They choose to ignore. Wrap there lives in themself. Which is opposite of what God says.
" Every child born on instinct, his parents make him Jew, Christian or Muslim" some people don't believe in God, therefore their kids follow their course. Some of these kids were wise enough to search, some came up with answers and some didn't find any! We are lost in this world and choose to believe in what makes survive the days.
Simple when growing up, you often believe what your parents believe, but once old enough then you decide if to continue as your parents have or seek their own path for the truth. Some people turn to god when they are at their lowest point due to events that they are having trouble coping with. They figure they will try anything that may give them support & help them get through each day.
There is no proof not any evidence that god ever existed including any religions out there religion is only here to give people hope and to maintain humanity from going crazy oh wait never mind millions and millions of people died of something that never existed its a myth a legend get it though your head. Oh and by the way we didn't magically appear on earth it's called evolution millions of years ago humans could walk or speak now we can

Hehe. Nice typo in your title! god is God unless plural (ex: greek gods). Well, some people dont believe in God for many reasons; you cant go saying that the reason is this or that. Some people chose to follow other religions because its teachings suit that person's beliefs. They are not bad for not believing in God; just like Christians way back when arent bad now; even after the Crusades and Witch Burnings. People are people and that's the simplest answer.
( 55 ) And nothing has prevented the people from believing when guidance came to them and from asking forgiveness of their Lord except that there [must] befall them the [accustomed] precedent of the former peoples or that the punishment should come [directly] before them.
( 56 ) And We send not the messengers except as bringers of good tidings and warners. And those who disbelieve dispute by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth and have taken My verses, and that of which they are warned, in ridicule.
( 57 ) And who is more unjust than one who is reminded of the verses of his Lord but turns away from them and forgets what his hands have put forth? Indeed, We have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it, and in their ears deafness. And if you invite them to guidance - they will never be guided, then - ever.
( 58 ) And your Lord is the Forgiving, full of mercy. If He were to impose blame upon them for what they earned, He would have hastened for them the punishment. Rather, for them is an appointment from which they will never find an escape. Quran (18:55-58)
A lot of people don't believe in God because they don't want to believe in something they cannot physically see. What we can see, though, is the qualities that God displays in his creation, our human bodies, and our galaxies, just to name a few. 2 Corinthians 4:18 tell us to "keep our eyes, not on the things seen, but on the things unseen."
By just admiring the waves of the ocean or the beautiful sunset, we can recognize that this all did not come by chance. Something so complex had to have a Creator behind it. Romans 1:20 tells us "For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world's creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable." This shows that our Heavenly Father, Jehovah God, is the Creator behind the beauty you see today. By meditating on this fact alone, there's no doubt that a God exists.

Have you ever a met someone who doesn't believe in God If you haven't, one day you probably will. And if you have, then you already know that there really are people who don't believe in God. That's hard to understand, isn't it There is so much evidence for God's existence like design in nature (which demands a Designer), Jesus resurrection, or biblical prophecy that we sometimes wonder how anyone could not believe in God. Who are these people? And why don't they believe in God...
An atheist firmly believes that God does not exist. An agnostic says it is impossible to know whether God exists. A skeptic doubts that God exists. An infidel doesn't believe in God, and doesn't want anyone else to believe in God either.
Everyone is entitled to believe what they want. Some individuals do not believe in God because they cannot physically see him. Others don't believe in him because of all the hypocrisy in religion. And there are some people who rather not believe in God to be able to do whatever they choose without having to render account to God. As said in the Bible in Psalms 10:4, "The wicked one according to his superciliousness makes no search; All his ideas are: 'There is no God.'"
To be spiritually blind is not to see Christ, and not to see Christ is not to see God (Colossians 1:15-16; 2 Corinthians 4:6). Spiritual blindness is a grievous condition experienced by those who do not believe in God, Jesus Christ, and His Word (Romans 2:8; 2 Thessalonians 2:12). Those who reject Christ are the lost (John 6:68-69). Being spiritually blind, they are perishing (2 Corinthians 4:3-4; Revelation 3:17). They choose not to accept the teachings of Christ and His authority in their lives (Matthew 28:18). They are blind to the manifestations of God as revealed throughout His Word and Jesus Christ (John 1:1; Acts 28:26-27). They are described as those who "do not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Corinthians 2:14).
