Is it due to a lack of evidence for either's veracity or because there is too much evidence to the contrary?
I think I have answered this question extensively as well as the others who are non-Christian but what the heck, I will do it again:
For me, I don't necessarily reject God or Christianity. I don't subscribe to it either. I feel the same towards Buddhism, Hinduism, Atheism, as well as all beliefs/non-beliefs.
All of them are incomplete for me. All of them are based in what one or several have people written in whatever book they chose. I imagine you will say the Bible is the word of God and that's fine. I am in no position to tell you otherwise but I don't believe it. As said by others and myself, the answer to the question "why do bad things happen to good people is because it is God's will" is insufficient for me. To me, if this is God's will then I do think God is rather sadistic in nature.
With all due respect to everyone else's beliefs, I feel the exact same way. I personally think being Atheist is crazy and somewhat depressing but I also realize this could also be my own fear of mortality. I have never had any issues with an atheist, however because they have never had any desire to convert me to what they believe.
