seems there are some babblers who do believe in gods and some who don't. I'm curious as to the reasons and logic behind these beliefs. There's been some back and forth on this in other threads (dawkins, etc) but i think it's time for a thread that is exclusive on the topic.
To me, i can't understand why people still accept the idea of a supernatural god being a real thing. I can see when people think some of the moral principles of the religions are worth noting, but that seems irrespective of whether or not the story is true.
Knowing what we now know about the world, it's age, the vastness of space and the amount of similar galaxies, structures and makeup of life, age of the earth, evolution, bacteria, science in general etc. the idea of god seems a bit presumptuous and devoid of any basis in reality.
Also, knowing that religion seems to have originated with worship of the sun and evolved from there into the many stories and versions that now exist, it seems odd to me that people can readily accept that greek gods for example were simply a story concocted by the greeks and not real. but we can't look at the still existing religions/gods the same way for some reason.
my point is that i've never heard a convincing argument for the existence of god, yet many people who are otherwise very intelligent, rational and logical still assert that there is in fact a god, and they know not only who it is, but many details about it's beliefs, morals, origins and supernatural powers.
