Why Do You Not Believe In God?

To me, God gives amply proof of his existence and a person can see that just by observing all creation. so why the hell do some people not believe in God?

Christians consider the existence of their God to be an obvious truth that no sane man could deny. I strongly disagree with this assumption not only because evidence for the existence of this presumably ubiquitous yet invisible God is lacking, but because the very nature Christians attribute to this God is self-contradictory.

Before we can discuss the existence of a thing, we must define it. Christians have endowed their God with all of the following attributes: He is eternal, all-powerful, and created everything. He created all the laws of nature and can change anything by an act of will. He is all-good, all-loving, and perfectly just. He is a personal God who experiences all of the emotions a human does. He is all-knowing. He sees everything past and future.

God's creation was originally perfect, but humans, by disobeying him, brought imperfection into the world. Humans are evil and sinful, and must suffer in this world because of their sinfulness. God gives humans the opportunity to accept forgiveness for their sin, and all who do will be rewarded with eternal bliss in heaven, but while they are on earth, they must suffer for his sake. All humans who choose not to accept this forgiveness must go to hell and be tormented for eternity. One Bible verse which Christians like[b] Maykelly and co [/b] are fond of quoting says that atheists, Satanist and any believe out Christianity are fools. I intend to show that the above concepts of God are completely incompatible and so reveal the impossibility of all of them being true. Who is the fool?  The fool is the one who believes impossible things and calls them divine mysteries.

@ Topic. I don't believe in the God of religion(s) because i don't want to. He tries to scare people into compliance and that just ain't gonna fly. He was created by humans to achieve human goals.

I'm open to other interpretations of the word, but not a transcendent God that answers prayers and sends people to hell, etc. And any interpretation that does not admit to be tentative, but claims to be "The Truth", is of no use to me either. IMO our Universe is still unfolding, and everything changes. .

@ Mantra:

That's one rather long list. I had to scroll and scroll and scroll. And to make the srolling doubly sure, banom had to go and insert the whole damn list again. I didn't find that funny at all.

Next time, just give us an abridged version or insert the link.

Gods that atheists don't believe in:

All of the above and one more: Yahweh

Why do you not believe in any of the other gods in the list?  

Its obvious. Because they are not real, but people still believe in them.

Think about it. All Gods were man made.

If you believe in God, may I ask why you don't believe also in brownies, UFOs, elves, santa claus and all the other fairies described by other books like the bible.

And answer the question posed by IDINRETE, please. Which of the gods do you believe in?
