you should be telling us why you believe in a god
it's the believers responsibility to convince us, not everyone elses to convince you otherwise
i don't know if i'd call it a responsibility. Maybe a responsiblity to accept your own beliefs.. and that others will have their own aswell. I don't think it's any ones responsibility to "enlighten" anyone.
I'm not so much interested in what people believe, or why they believe what they believe. What i'm interested in is why we feel we need to believe anything.. it seems almost as inert as eating and breathing to search for these answers.
