"I see absolutely zero evidence of the existence of a God..." That's because you move the goalposts, a typical atheist fallacy. Every year millions of honest and sane people have spiritual experiences with God. Don't laugh; that's more evidence than you have to shore up your atheism. One cannot know there is no God, much less prove it. There is zero evidence to support atheism, so why your double standard?
"so why should I believe in God...?" I can't give you a reason to believe in God, but I have already given you good reason to find out for yourself. Want more? All right, I have seen at least two miraculous cures in response to prayer. Placebos don't work on babies.
"...and why are people trying to force God on us?" Easy to say, hard to prove, dear one. I'm not trying to force God on you. I'm trying to get your attention and persuade you to find out for yourself, through your own experiences. Know God for yourself.
