Lack of Evidence

There’s no evidence for God whatsoever. Sensible theists admit that their belief is founded on nothing but faith, but there are always those who claim to have evidence of irreducible complexity, healings, out-of-body experiences or other such stupid notions and treat them as evidence for the existence of their particular God. Don’t believe them. The truth is, if someone managed to prove God, it would be instant news on all news channels, through all media, everywhere. It would be an unprecedented landmark in human history.

Of course, there is absolutely no evidence at all. No idea of the holy or paranormal has ever stood up to skeptical enquiry, for good reason.

Contradictions of Scripture

It’s bad enough that the various books that claim to be the word of God are in disagreement. The various holy books even contradict themselves. For instance, there’s the hilarious verse in the Bible where God can’t drive out the inhabitans of a valley, because they have iron chariots1:

And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.

Judges 1:19

And this is the guy who created the earth, Heaven and Hell, animals and humans, light and dark? If these books were really the word of God, surely the Lord would’ve made sure they actually made sense? If God’s foundation, his holy book, doesn’t make sense, then why should the concept of God?

The Concept of God is Incoherent

There’s never really any agreement on the exact definition of God. Many hold that God is almighty, but at the same time there are things God can’t do. Many hold that God is all-loving, but at the same time the world is full of evil. Many hold that God is all-knowing, yet God often regrets His actions. Some hold that we are all part of God, and some that the number of gods is infinite; some hold that God created the universe and walked away, and some hold that God is personal. The very concept of God is ill-defined and fuzzy to the point where one can’t really say anything useful about the concept except perhaps “beyond human”.

Belief in God is Irrational

There’s no way to come around this. Belief in God is irrational. It defies all logic and it is not founded on evidence. The most common way to “find God” is to be taught the religion of your parents or other relatives. If you had been born in another country, your version of God would probably be different. The effect of your answer to the question “is there a God” ranges from profoundly changing your life to complete indifference. Do you really want to leave such an important decision to your heritage?

By believing in God you essentially throw away one of the most important tools we have, namely rational thought, in favor of feelings or simply social pressure.

Belief in God Leads to a Dangerous Us Versus Them Mentality2

Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.

Steven Weinberg

Conflicts rooted in religion are probably the worst kind of conflict, and they abound through human history and even today. It leads to a dangerous us versus them mentality, and unlike other such attitudes, this kind of attitude rooted in religion is socially acceptable. It’s acceptable to draw a sharp line between believers and non-believers of your religion, but drawing the same kind of line between people with black and white skin color is not acceptable. This is very dangerous thinking, and it leads to intolerance, fear, violence, and ultimately terrorism and even war.
6.
The Problem of Evil

The major religions assert that God knows all, loves all, and can do pretty much everything. Still, the world is full of evil. This pretty much speaks for itself. The theists defend their God by saying that the reason for evil is that humans must have free will. Yet God, who is all-knowing, must have known what kind of world this would lead to. How can God love all people yet be willing to put them through so much misery and suffering?
7.
Religion is a Shield from Reality

Reality is a dangerous place to be residing in. There’s so much bad stuff in the real world, and we are so small. No wonder people dislike reality. But that isn’t a good reason to build up a shield from reality. That’s exactly what religion is. When a loved one dies, people hide away from the dark reality (the loved one is really gone, and won’t be coming back) by reciting a well learned fantasy, such as “He is in a better place,” or “She will be reincarnated into a better life” or some such. When someone does something unfair to the believer, he or she may find comfo
