I don’t believe in God because there is no reason, evidence, or need.
When I was first taught (at age seven) that God made me, I silently wondered who made God. It just never made any sense to me, and therefore, I had no motivation to cultivate the necessary faith in order to sustain belief in a supernatural entity, and a very unsavory one, to boot.
Like many atheists, I am completely perplexed by religious belief. I have no idea how religious folks manage to pull off the faith trick. Perhaps, neuroscience will be able eventually to clarify the mental/emotional components necessary in order to take the faith leap.
