Well, that's rational.

I am sorry my friend, but if there has to be evidence of something for you to believe in it, that is a weakness as it related to religion. Faith, is just that, belief in the absence of scientific proof. Now those that have profound faith will argue that they see and feel proof everyday. And that is the paradox....
If you do not choose to believe that is your choice. It does not make some illogical or stupid for believing in religion. In fact, I would argue that people actually allowing themselves to succumb to a higher power and the idea of divine intentions actually make people stronger and happier. From what I have seen, the most miserable people I have ever known have been the atheists and those that view everything in life as some cold and calculating. If you or anyone else chooses to live that way, thats their choice. Although, as myself and other believers can attest, there is a much larger, wondrous, and happy world out there than that.

Hey everyone, listen for the violins here.
God won't remove my cellulite, won't give me a boob lift, and I'd really like to have permanent eyeliner and my lips dyed. I guess this changes things God. I may have to rethink if YOU exist.
Now, see how silly that sounds?

Doesn't the bible say something like all have sinned and fall short of the glory of god, so basically he doesn't listen to anyone...?
