Inspite of the things around us, e.g. nature, why are there still people who dont believe the existence of God?
I think we need to remember that the issue of whether one believes in God or not is intensely personal and not something that we can enforce or require of others. Belief in God is an issue that all of us need to decide by ourselves, which involves looking at our own lives and our perception of the world and weighing up what evidence we feel is important. There is certainly enough evidence out there from scientists and evolutionary biologists that could be used to "disprove" the existence of God and the theory of intelligent design, and so much continues to be discovered about nature and the world that could support the disbelief in God. At the end of the day, belief in God or not requires an act of faith, and we need to be sensitive towards those who have come to a different conclusion compared to our own conclusion.
Some people do not consider nature evidence of God. After all, evolution is based on the idea that every living thing comes from single celled organisms that evolved from the primordial soup. If you don't believe life can be created spontaneously, that does leave divine intervention.
Thank you sir for your good answer. I have learned in my education that human are naturally spiritual beings. Thus, there is no such thing as atheism for me. Let us take for instance the common theme that we know in our world--the abstract word "love". A person does something because of his/her love for something (whatever is that something). Dont you think that person does not consider that thinhg as a "god"?
People of today have too many things that make them too busy to notice small things that tell them about God's goodness. They don't even realize that their single breath belongs to Him.
