Fine, if we're already having relegion discussion. First off, I don't believe in god, never believed and have all the reason to think I'll never do. That aside, the only reason why I can explain why there are still so many religious people despite all the scientific explanations of the world's creation and the biological evolution of the human being is the necessaty of a person to "feel the help of someone else". If you don't believe in god, and whenever you face an obstacle in your life, you face it alone and no one's gonna help you. However, if you believe in god than there is always someone beside you who is ready to help you and whatnot, and even if your earth life sucked, than you will still end up in heaven where you can do whatever you want.
Not everyone can live with the thought that they are alone in this world, and everything they want to achieve in this live depends on themselves and not some scientifically unexplainable being.
Just because I don't believe in god doesn't mean that I'm alone.
I confess that I will never tell my mom that I don't believe in god, because I know it would break her heart. :/ I've waited years for my mind to change, or to feel someone or something there. Truth is, I don't even feel a void. I used to think god was there, but somewhere along the way, the feeling faded. At the same time, I currently feel as though he was never there. It's difficult to feel like you're missing someone that was never even there, you know?

Science has nothing to do with disproving god or religion. Its primary goal is to help us understand the world better, how things work and etc. It was never meant to go against religion or god, further proved by many famous scientists believing in god. In fact, religion and science pretty much got along until the government made it a law to take the Bible literally. Science and religion can get along, it's usually the dipshits that can't.
I confess I don't believe in god, and that if he's real, he can blow me. Seriously, he has all the power in the world but refuses to help anyone? GTFO, that's not benevolent whether or not he gave us free will (which he ultimately didn't).
I confess I get annoyed whenever people ask what do I live for or whether I feel alone. I live in the moment, I define my own life, not god. Don't need to live for him to get in heaven. And I like being alone anyway, screw stalkers. <_<
