Why I’m an Atheist - Ricky Gervais

This quote was added by delchevg
Why don't you believe in God? I get that question all the time. I always try to give a sensitive, reasoned answer. This is usually awkward, time consuming and pointless. People who believe in God don't need proof of his existence, and they certainly don't want evidence to the contrary. They are happy with their belief. They even say things like "it's true to me" and "it's faith." I still give my logical answer because I feel that not being honest would be patronizing and impolite.

You can see, touch, smell and taste other people's brains, though it is frowned upon in our society.

You can't see your brain, touch it, smell it, taste it, or even hear it, yet, you still believe that your brain exists.

Of course people will be happy since they have a reason to live. Not only eating delicious food.

Please watch Zakir Naik and I promise that you will always find the answer.

For me, I don't believe in a supreme being because... I simply don't believe in it.
