Why do atheists think that atheism is the most logical conclusion?

    Many atheists, if not most, choose to base their beliefs in empirical (rather than anecdotal) evidence.  What could be more logical?

    Believing in magic may be fun and satisfying, but it is illogical.

    Likewise a drunk thinks he is more clever and witty than when he was sober...while everyone else groans.

    So it is with the Atheists on here.

    "There cannot be a God, because I don't know Him, even though hundreds of millions of other people do know Him". What could be more logical than that?

      Why haven't we seen God yet? I'd rather believe in science (which has a plethora of studies and evidence) than a book that has been translated so many times.

    Consider that two claims are in conflict with each other.  It is the case that at least one (and possibly both) is incorrect. And, there's no reason to arbitrarily assume one of the to be true and the other to be false in the absence of other evidence supporting the claims of either. 

    The logical conclusion, therefore, is to go with the null hypothesis. There is no reason to assume a relationship between x and y until we have sufficient evidence to say there actually is a relationship between x and y. There is no reason to assume there is a relationship between Yahweh and the creation of the universe without testable evidence that Yahweh was the one that did create the universe, just as there's no reason to assume Brahma created the universe without testable evidence Brahma created the universe.

    Theist haven't provided sufficient evidence to consider their God or gods exist.

      Knowledge and belief are separate questions. Atheist and agnostic aren't mutually exclusive.

    Because logic dictates that you don't accept something without examining the evidence first.

    Nothing at all. There is neither evidence nor logic to shore up the fantasy that there is no God.

    Because they like atheism. If they thought it was illogical, they wouldn't be atheists.

      Logic comes from Logos, a Greek root deriving from Legein: to collect, count, enumerate. Again, it is an intellectual tool for use in rational study of the objective world, not a tool to prove infinite abstract concepts.

    Atheist is a word made by Greeks to call unbelievers, that happen 500 years before any Christians exist, and 1,100 years before any Muslim so the most logical conclusion is that people like you do not worship Greek deities because those atheist got the correct view on the reality of those Greeks gods... logically, you had not made any visit or worshiped any nearest Greek gods temples or Oracles...

    Atheists know deep down that the most logical conclusion is I don't know. Atheists "do know " which puts them in the position of making a claim. Agnosticism is the most logical conclusion because nobody knows and testimonies of believers is eye witness testimony. No matter how much atheists refuse to admit reality isn't any of my concerns.
