RE: Worst reasons to believe in god
We really don't have to go far to find simply batshit explanations.

Consider, just posted in the last couple of days:

"...the Universe is composed of Matter, Energy, Gravity, Time and Space; all of which require being created. Consciousness however is still a mystery. In fact, if you’re a follower of the Niels Bohr Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, it is Consciousness that creates Matter. A Supreme Consciousness may very well indeed not have required being created."

RE: Worst reasons to believe in god
The classic argument from ignorance "I don't know how we got here so therefore GOD!"

Makes perfect logical sense doesn't it?

Dreams/Hallucinations/delusions are not evidence
Wishful thinking is not evidence
Disproved statements&Illogical conclusions are not evidence
Logical fallacies&Unsubstantiated claims are not evidence
Vague prophecies is not evidence
Data that requires a certain belief is not evidence

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.

Fuck that. Take everything that is attributed to that god, and then claim that while he did all of that he was also non-existent! He was so great, he did everything without actually existing. To me that seems way more impressive than it all being accomplished by a god that exists, because it has the advantage of existence; how much greater then is the feat of creating everything while also being non-existent?

See, I can make up silly bullshit too! Wink

I've also heard someone say they believe because they saw an old (like, supposedly first century) painting.

Because no one ever paints something that doesn't exist. Especially not religious figures they're forced into thinking do exist. Ever.
