I, as I am sure many other atheists do, always cite the lack of evidence for a god as one of the main reasons for my disbelief. However, I often wonder if that's sufficient enough reason. Evidence collects over time with numerous experiments that all add to the same conclusion and since this is not the case with god I conclude that god does not exist. But for thousands of years there was no evidence for bacteria yet they existed. This was due to many reasons mainly due to a lack of technology. Is it possible this is the same for god and that this gives those who are religious reasonable wiggle room for their belief?
