If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Why would anyone believe "God" is real?

"jack" wrote:

So, God is all powerful and can do anything easily and instantly just by thinking it, yet God cannot appear and speak to you personally, he/she/it communicates through people who simultaneously ask you for money and obedience? When you ask "God's" self appointed messengers for their proof, their answer is "faith," meaning they're essentially demanding from you blind obedience to their will. 

Also, if you've ever read the bible, the rules sound like they were written by a variety of rigid, undereducated humans, not by an all knowing omnipotent being.
