Why do they ask that question?Religion is a very powerful entity in the world. Whatever religion it may be, it has a grand following of people of that religion and everyone has got his own definition of God, who is supposed to help us and guide us in the journey of life. That is the basic premises on which religions survive.
Some people do not believe in God and religion and are called an atheist. They have their own logical and rational thinking behind that belief.
It is many times observed that the religious people sometimes ask a question to the atheist - 'Do you believe in God? As the answer is no they look upon the atheists as if they have done a crime. The believer of God in fact look upon the atheists with pity and sympathy and pray to God to give them divine knowledge.
What right the religious people have got to ask such foolish questions when the answer is well known. Do they want to downgrade the atheist in front of society? What is the motive behind such questions?
Scientifically and rationally speaking no one knows about the existence of God still the believers will with proud ask such questions.
