This is all assuming, of course, that if YOUR God doesn't exist, then everything is a coincidence. You fail to take into consideration other views
lacking belief in a God, but whose followers seem to be more fulfilled in their beliefs, anyway. Take Buddhists, for example. Or Taoists, even.
Personally, I'm not a Christian. However, religion is what gives me a purpose. If I didn't have some form of religious belief, I would have no
purpose. Some people don't need religion to habe a purpose, and I'm fine with that - some people don't need to drink to have a good time.
I, however, do need religion. Just because someone else has no religion doesn't make their purpose on this world any less significant.
Do I believe in God? In a way, yes. Though, not in the way the Bible or Quran portrays him. I believe in numerous forms of God - one being the Force
(or Tao), another being Iluvatar (yes, THAT Iluvatar) - as well as numerous other deities. I don't believe "just in case", however - that's pure
idiocy. I believe because it personally gives me a purpose, a good feeling about my existance. I personally couldn't be atheist. This only backs up
the claim that not all people are suited for one single belief.
