Atheists, why are there so many 'personal experiences' of God?

I myself am an atheist and I think the scientific errors in Christianity outweigh the 'personal experiences' that Christians tell.

Are there any accounts like this... show more I myself am an atheist and I think the scientific errors in Christianity outweigh the 'personal experiences' that Christians tell.

Are there any accounts like this coming from Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.?
