    Why do each of you reject God and Christianity?

    Is it due to a lack of evidence for either's veracity or because there is too much evidence to the contrary?

    If these are different options (which depends on what you take evidence to consist of), then both.

    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.

    God - too little evidence

    Christianity - both

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I do not reject God. I welcome Him in my heart and hope I am welcome in His. I reject the Bible as the infallible Word of God. It is a collection of opinions and exaggerated stories and brilliant metaphors that should never be taken literally. Period.

    On that note, I don't "reject" God as some sort of defiance - I don't believe in his existence. These are different.

    Don't bother, ATY. He screens his calls.

    There is no evidence for the existence of God.

    I wouldn't say that. I just think it's very sparse and heavily outweighed by evidence against the existence of God.

    I believe in God and I do not need evidence to prove he exists I only need the Bible to prove he is real.
