Religion is a tricky subject. Faith is an even trickier landmine. It's not a must that you believe in a God or a higher power. There are plenty of people who don't believe. They feel life is what it is and we all have just take life as our own without a guiding hand. And it's fascinating to wonder how they came to that conclusion.

Redditor u/Dm0n5t3r wanted those who have their faith without a higher power wanted to know.... Atheists of Reddit, why don't you believe in God?


The Gods...

Giphy

Same reason you don't believe in Zeus or Vishnu. i_live_by_the_river

I wish the Greek gods became popular again. The art and stories that came out of them were hype. Sprayspaint

The Blip of Time....

I don't think kindness should be driven by some vague promise from some unknown force that I'll be rewarded for it in another life. I think we should just strive to be good to one another whether there's a benefit to it or not.

If there's a God, great. If there isn't, that's still great because we're a tiny part of the universe that was able to marvel at itself for this precious little blip of time. pm_me_ur_hung_twinks

Numb....

Raised in the Mormon church and I really tried too. Even tried to read the Bible and book of mormon but i just never felt anything. Never felt his presence even when others in the church were crying during prayer saying like "I know God loves me." i just never felt anything. jonnyjonnyjonnyboy

Proof!

Lack of evidence and logical inconsistency. I-am-a-person-

Also add there's been multiple studies that proved prayers don't work and religious people have the same life expectancy as atheists. wastingtoomuchthyme

Confused?

Giphy

I think I'm unable to, like literally can not comprehend how people can believe in a God. I don't understand the concept of faith.

My eyes see no existence.... 

I've never seen anything that convinced me that any Gods existed. Not just the Judeo-Christian God, but any of the thousands that mankind has worshiped. Automatic_Mulberry

Inches Count... 

I didn't choose atheism, I just am. I could no more change it than I could grow 5 inches. DogsNotHumans

Peace First.

I was raised in a Lutheran household, and over time (after reading the Bible) I realized that the acts that he promotes and condones is not something that I want to be affiliated with. If God is looking out for everybody than why is religion one of the top causes of violence around the World. banditsman5

Logic Counts. 

The same reason you or anyone else doesn't believe in Zeus, Thor, Santa or the Tooth Fairy, they're just silly stories. Assuming you're a Christian you don't believe in any other God or gods, atheists just take that disbelief one step further. There is no evidence, no logical reason to believe in any supernatural being. F00FlGHTER

Religion isn't a reason....

Giphy

I don't feel like I have sufficient evidence for one's existence. Believing in a god is a claim that I feel Theists haven't proven.

Religion is a business, relying on customers *cough* I mean slaves *I mean followers* to keep the indoctrination chain going.

Crappy religious people that use religion to justify hate.

My own religious family members rejected my brother b/c he's gay. I don't want to be a part of anything that is so full of hate.MercyFae

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Do they deserve it?

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
