Of course some of them realize that "God" can't be disproven, so they don't bother to try.

What I have done is to show that it is possible for the way the universe began to be determined by the laws of science. In that case, it would not be necessary to appeal to God to decide how the universe began. This doesn't prove that there is no God, only that God is not necessary.

I subscribe to this point of view. As I previously mentioned, I tend to lean toward a pantheistic view. I don't subscribe to organized religion, but recognize it has both it's positive and negative points. In the end, I'm not sure whether the good or the bad carry more weight.
