why some people don’t believe in god
by Zhou (Chew) Hong Jie
Christian: Why don’t people believe in God??
Atheist: Duh…why don’t people believe in unicorns?
Christian: Well, for starters, they’re not real.
Atheist: And on what grounds do you base that statement?
Christian: Nobody has ever seen one!!
Atheist: So are you saying that you have to see something to believe in it?
Christian: I’m not saying that! And anyway, if you want to go there, how come no one has ever found unicorn bones?
Atheist: Hmm. Now you’re saying you must have physical evidence in order to believe in something. What about faith?
Christian: There is nothing about faith when it comes to unicorns!! It’s something from a children’s book, for Christ’s sake!!
Atheist: So you’re implying that we shouldn’t believe in things that only exist in fables or fiction?
Christian: YES! And besides that, if unicorns really existed, some biologist would already have published something about them.
Atheist: Hmm. Okay, let me reiterate all of this one more time. You’re saying that, for someone to believe something exists, he/she must have:
- factual evidence
- physical evidence
- scientific evidence
- all the above must come from somewhere other than a book
I suppose now you should understand why some people DON’T believe in God.
