I don’t believe there is a god or gods to believe in or to disbelieve in. It is because, for the most part, just the plain lack of evidence. I know, a lack of evidence doesn’t prove there isn’t a god, but it certainly does not provide a foundation to suggest that there is a god either, especially with the evidence we have for the formation of the universe reflects natural causes. It wasn’t until my late 20′s that I started even caring to question the existence of gods. Up until then, I had accepted what my family, friends, and the people around me had told me. They didn’t say, “believe in god.” No, they had just always acted and talked as though they “knew” god existed, as though it were self-evident, and I, like a child that trusts his parents because he does not have the experience to know such things, trusted the confidence of my elders. But then it all changed. When I suddenly acquired a passion for the pursuit of truth. It must have crept up without me realizing it over the years, as I had studied philosophy on my own starting at a very young age. Of course that, and other experiences, I think must have conditioned me, and ultimately determined me towards the pursuit of truth.
