Probably going to sound stupid, but you tell a child something is real, they're going to believe it. I know there are other factors, but I think that's a pretty big one. Would it hurt to wait until they can think for themselves to see if they still believe or not?

when they grow up and realize that they are the only 20 year old receiving presents on dec 25th that a fat guy from the north pole brought them, they might start questioning their beliefs.

I'd LOL if a father didn't buy his kids anything for Christmas because he thought santa would do it and when that day came they found nothing.

I'm surprised at the amount of non-believers that were on the poll. If I could have voted, no way would have been my choice.

The most religious people also happen to be the most uneducated.

Yeah I was watching The Last Word the other night and Atheists know more about the Bible than Catholics. (According to their survey.)

It gives all the more truth to the saying "The fastest way to become and Atheist is to read the Bible."

The general belief in a higher power, with no connections to any organized belief system, is not worth talking about if it doesn't make any falsifiable claims.

JustMarioBros might not be able to do it himself, but if multiple, unambiguous prophecies exclusive to one religion were fulfilled, you could conclude beyond a reasonable doubt that it's true.

That works both ways, though. Christianity, for example, can be treated like a scientific hypothesis. If it's true as described in the Bible, then there should be a lot of evidence in its favor. However, all of the evidence that you would expect to find is missing, which leads to the inevitable conclusion that Christianity is, beyond a reasonable doubt, false.

If you want to get pedantic, then sure, you can't prove or disprove the existence of God like you could a mathematical theorem. Then again, following that line of thinking, you can't prove or disprove the existence of anything outside your own mind. It's self-defeating, and really, nobody believes that shіt anyway. A genuine nihilist would stay in one spot without ever moving and eventually die of dehydration.
