I've never understood why, even though some believers will admit that their "God" is not proveable, they choose to,believe in something that is not there, and has no proof of. Theists will say, "well, you HAVE to believe in something... something that is bigger than yourself." Believe in something even if it dosen't make any sense, and is scientifically, biologically, and physiologically impossible? I just can't comprehend the purpose of that. Why can't people believe in THEMSELVES, or someone they look up to, a family member, a mentor? Why believe in something just for the sake of believing in something, even if it is ridiculous? To me, believing in a "God" is the same thing as believing in Santa Claus, ( same concept...someone that is watching everything you do, and will "punish" you for being bad) the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy...all things we were taught to believe when we were kids... believing in a God is like the Santa Clauss for adults.
