It is intellectually abhorrent to disregard evidence because you think you already know everything. If you are so sure, why disregard a new source of information? When I was not a practicing Seventh Day Adventist Christian, I discounted...no...never even considered that there could be a God. When confronted by the overwhelming evidence, I had to make a choice. When confronted with the realization that the evidence pointed to God not only existing, but being perfect in His love and mercy, I had to chose Him in response. I implore you to do nothing more than to not shut out evidence that might be contrary to your current world-view. No intelligence being should and intellectually honest person would.

I was a devout Christian for about 36 years and I spent a lot of time looking at the "evidence" before I came to the conclusion that it was mostly just wishful thinking on my part. I recognize that there could be a God. I just don't think there is much reason to believe that there certainly is a God -- and there even less evidence than that to conclude that any of the many religious groups or subgroups out there are correct. Leprechauns could exist do. I certainly can't prove they don't exist.
On the subject of evidence --
How do you handle the evidence that the universe is several billion years old?
