Worst reasons to believe in god
What are the worst reasons to believe in god you've ever heard?

I was once asked how it was possible I didn't believe in god when a snooty person I know shared a first name with a snooty character on TV. Yeah, while millions starve god spends his time making cute little coincidences.

RE: Worst reasons to believe in god
"Humans cannot imagine anything greater than what exists. Since we can imagine God, God exists."

I remember hearing that in high school, back when I believed in God, thinking "WTF?". I didn't understand how he got to that first premise.

Worst reasons to believe in god
"A Necessary Being (i.e., a Being of which it is impossible that it should not exist) exists."

The idea of "a necessary being" is remarkably stupid presupposition.

People this stupid are painful to talk to.

I've heard "You can't deny the existence of something that does not exist. You deny god exists, so he must exist in order for you to be able to deny him". People like that I just roll my eyes at and attempt to never speak to again.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

One of the most stupid ones is definitely "Everybody believes and they can't be wrong"

RE: Worst reasons to believe in god
"The world is just so complex" - true, but inserting your god just means you are too stupid or lazy to learn how it really works, and how it really became so diverse and complex.

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

It's kind of funny that in nature everything is going from simply things to more complex but for theists it's the other way around. The most complex thing in the world is making everything else.
