I'm fourteen and an athiest. This year my entire world studies class has been based off religion. The more we learn, the more and more disbelieving I get. Please don't lecture about how I'm too young too make decisions on religion or anything, please just answer the question and give me reasons I would understand.

It's really quite simple. I don't believe in any gods because there is no reliable evidence for their existence. There is no difference between the Greek myths, Norse myths, or Grimm's fairy tales and any modern-day religion. They are just stories, not fact.

Well, I'll answer this simply with a question:

 

Why do you not believe in Santa Claus?

It was because of lack of evidence. books that compiles all the hearsay about a divine being is not an evidence either.
