    I don't believe in them, but they can be entertaining. If they weren't, theism would have been gone ages ago.

    *** Bible Citations ***

    (Isaiah 40:22) There is One who dwells above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers. He is stretching out the heavens like a fine gauze, And he spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.

    (Job 26:7) He stretches out the northern sky over empty space, Suspending the earth upon nothing;

    We just refuse to believe in them, since there is no logic in fairy tales, especially the ones that come from the Middle Age like religions.

    You mean like a talking snake, a global flood that never happened, and a giant Hydra that will one day appear in the sky and sweep a third of all the stars down to the Earth?

    With its tail?

    Christians are deadbeats in the eyes of God.

    They pray to something called 'jesus'.

    Praying to 'jesus' is like trying to

    command a Saltine Cracker and a urine sample to do something.

    If Christians believed in 1-God, and they saw

    anyone else believing in a pipe-dream like ‘the bible’

    which contained a 3-piece god with a ‘savior’ built in, they would

    be calling them idiots, and worshipers of evil.

    With regard to christ-based faith, it is obvious that God has

    no intention of acknowledging the way in which He is being sought.

    Jesus = Nothing ... nothing, at all.

    Fact. No fairytale.

    I see you still have found no testable evidence for your claim that gods exist. Until you do, it is you who believes in fairytales.

    It's sort of like a coping mechanism to try to make sense out of world around them that doesn't make sense to them.

    For example, let's say there was a person who denied that the sun existed, and when you pointed to that bright light in the sky, they refused to believe that was the sun.  But still there's that bright light shining and staring at them, so what to do?  They might make up a story about how light comes from the air around us and in some places the air is more concentrated and that's what we are seeing in the sky.
