People base their beliefs on what they feel is the truth, it's that simple. It's my opinion that we shouldn't judge people based on what they do or do not believe. What may be logical to you may be illogical to someone else, does that make their belief or opinion superior to yours? We all choose what we believe to be the truth and no two people share the exact same beliefs, we should respect the opinions of others even if we disagree.

Some people were taught or forced to believe and now they can't take any other, more logical point of view. The other ones were searching for something that would take some responsibility off their shoulders in exchange for reasonable thinking. Yeah, it's that simple. That's how human brain works. It has nothing to do with Bible or any other book, because they all were written by people.
EDIT: Speaking of logic... Let's suppose the god is almighty. Is he also able to create a stone he can't pick up because it's too heavy? If not, he can't be almighty, right?
It is easier to believe in God the Creator of the universe of heaven and earth God gives us life we have a relationship with the father would you believe that we came from a cesspool of mock climbed out and became human that's pretty hard to believe don't you think come on think about it how did two sexes climb out of a water pool male and female and then multiply into a human that's pretty hard to swallow read the Bible it will scare the hell out of you
1.) Because they were raised to. This is the most common reason of all.
2.) Because of social connections and the fear of losing those connections. I knew a guy who wasn't raised in a church, he knew this one girl who went to the church I used to go to, he visited church with her, and he found many social connections. He still doesn't understand anything about the Bible.
3.) Because they went through an earlier phase of their life and still have not matured or learned from that phase.
You simply don't know enough about GOD to make sense of Him. As Jesus said, 'are you not deceived because you don't know the scriptures nor the power of God? Yes, YOU are greatly deceived!"
God speaks but you cannot hear. God reveals Himself but you cannot see. You're unregenerate.. Dead in spirit due to sin. Repent and believe and you will be reborn and come to know your creator; Almighty God.
Insecure people that need something to hold on to. They are motivated to their faith through Fear of the wrath of a god person. The promoters of religion become very wealthy from donations from the believers. The believers have peace of mind because they are assured life after death. However, if they screw up they go to a place called hell and suffer for eternity. This is why they believe in god.
Primal fear. at some point in the history of mankind people became afraid if things lurking in the dark. that is when things began to grow in their imaginations. after that they began to talk about it as that sat around a campfire. why should we be afraid of something we can't hear or see or feel something we find hard to understand. think about it. a lot of insect don't move that much at night but they do make a lot of sounds. why. because they want you and other things to believe that there is something in the so they will go hide and not eat them. I'm not an atheist. I do believe there is a god because I don't think things like this occur for a reason greater than I mentioned.
i myself believe in god but some people believe because they think that they feel safe and will go to a safe place after death. I mean its just a belief but you dont have to believe in god. not everybody does and its perfectly fine. its ur choice to convert. god or anybody at all will not force you to. and if they do and u dont believe fully within, then theres no point! Once again, my opinion.
