Because some people have different views on things. Some people chose to blindly believe, while others would rather look at it scientifically and realistically and come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as God. I'm not saying that one way is better than another. To each his own.

God does not believe in Atheists, therefore Atheists do not exist.

You are a very confused person.

You want to know why? I just cant force myself to blindly follow a religion. I like to think for myself and come to my own conclusions. Could there be a god? Absolutley, but I doubt man can predict his sentiments and beliefs. If there is a god I bet he is different than the one that every religion chooses to worship, because we know nothing really.

If you don't understand that I'm afraid there is no hope for you.

I am mostly atheist but with a little agnostic in me, because I think there could be some sort of god, but probably not.

Because he/she/it doesn't exist. I am happy to be proved wrong but after 33 years on this planet I have seen no evidence that he exists.

The only thing personally that I have seen that would make me believe in a higher plane of existence is the Dalai Lama. That guy exudes peace and virtue.

then you need to be a little more specific about your confusion. Are you unable to understand the arguments used by atheists? Or are you unable to conceptualize a universe without a god? Or are you unable to understand how someone could be comfortable not believing in god? Or something else?
