I share the same philosophy as many others. Anything which I can sense, I believe as real (unless I don't trust my senses at that time). If someone tries to tell me that "thing x" exists, then I'd like my senses to be able to input that information first hand (ie. no middleman like the bible).

Of course in this media driven age there isn't much of that going on, and you have to know how much you can trust your media sources.

From this perspective the onus is on the believers to prove any existence of a God. Too many times I see this subtle condition reversed, as if the non-believers have to disprove God.

We all follow logic in our lives, religous people or otherwise. This is part of logic. It gets me very angry when people say logic isn't everything because it is! If you turn you back on logic in _any_ argument at all then your just throwing it _all_ away.

We all want a nice friendly God to look after us in life and death. We all want to know why we were created and whether God exists or not. We also forget all to easily how we can become trapped in our own subjectiveness.
