I know there are atheists out there who have legitimate reasons to not believe in God, which is fine, believe what you want to believe. I just hate how some are so close-minded to any possibility that there is something beyond the realm of human comprehension and if something is placed before them that could be a reason for the existence of God, the argument is that they can't see it, but they can see science. /rant

As an athiest, if irrefutable evidence of the existence of god was placed before me, I would accept it. However, to date, I have seen no such evidence. Sure, there are plenty of things that COULD mean the existence of a higher power. But, by Occam's razor, the simpler explanation is more likely to be true. I personally believe that there is nothing 'guiding' existence. But you're right in that this should be a personal choice.

It's human nature to be that way. I know atheists, agnostics, and christians that are all like that.

well if it can be detected some other way we'd believe. like for instance. radio waves. completely invisible. but we can still detect it and can repeatedly test to get the same results of their existence.

What about thoughts? You can detect the waves of a thought but you can never fully understand what they are

actually we can detect those too. things like MRI machines can scan and record thought patterns of all types. from normal body functions to people dreaming or imagining things.

I realize that. But say for instance I am thinking about the possibilities about what could happen tonight at a friend's house or something, and I start to visualize what the possibilities are. Only I can perceive them with my mind. Only I see what's happening in that realm of possibilities

its true that your body can do that. but we can prove that that is possible. we know how it is even done since it is your brain firing of certain electrical signals that emulate the memory of color in a pattern that we want. its all neurons and electricity and brain crap. you get the jist

I do. And I apologize if I made it seem as if I was trying to convert you or something. I'm not. I just want people to understand why I believe what I believe

oh no no. no need to apologize. mostly i just responded to the why and how of an atheist thought process. its very based around science and sound reason. at least for most atheist.
