Why are most theists bent on ignoring what they can see, and imagining things they can't see?

    One need not imagine what they can't see, but if we ignored what we can't see we would never have discovered microbes, atoms, quarks and all the other things in nature that, each day we do eventually see.

    Just because you can't see God doesn't mean God isn't there.

    The thing is humans attribute to God human qualities, human emotions. They anthropomorphize God.

    Are you saying that there are no x-rays just because you can't see them? They can be observed using sensitive instruments and fluoroscopes.

    Such a generalization is meaningless.

    See what?

    Can't see what?

    There are a lot of things we can't see that are not imaginary (even scientifically). In most of those cases we know of them by their effect on other things. For instance, the Higgs Boson was postulated to exist many years ago through mathematical analysis. Then the appropriate traces were found this last year at CERN. But a Higgs has never been seen by a human. Even an electron - which is many orders of magnitude larger - has never been seen by a human.
