I'm an atheist but once in a while, I sometimes think perhaps such a beautiful universe was created by an extremely powerful sentient being. Although I usually favor a scientific theory like the big bang rather than "a wizard did it".
So even though i'm an atheist, I don't find it silly at all for people to believe in god. However, even when I do picture god, I do not think of some infinitely powerful being that knows EVERYTHING and is super benevolent. I picture perhaps a sentient being that might have caused the big bang or something else that shaped the universe but not something drastic like lying down laws, judging people or even creating life for that matter.
With that aside, my point is that believing in a creator is not too crazy but believing that hes also a super good being thats here to help our problems sounds like something from a Disney movie. I mean theres nothing to support that God is good at all. Other than providing us with life (parents can be good or bad too despite giving us life), God really has no case for being a good being. In the bible, hes a vengeful monster thats killed an uncountable amount of people, believes in slavery, believes in sexual inequality and gives 0 chances.
Even if I were to neglect that religious texts themselves prove that God is not benevolent, the very idea that something so powerful would use it to aid us as opposed to for his own benefit is too unreal. Not everybody is spider-man and thus we shouldn't expect somebody with so much power to use his power responsibly. If he were using his powers responsibly then he should help us because most of humanity is living in poverty. Is he out of mana? Sure he could be more powerful than us but that doesnt mean he can't lie to us about his power or even his alignment. He could be here just to screw around with us.
We often say that life isn't a fairy tale and that life is in reality quite harsh. Things don't happen like it does in the movies where the good guy always wins. Yet when it comes to reasoning for God, we revert back to fairy telling which is why Im an atheist. If religion only gave the possibility that God could be evil too then that would sound more realistic to me.
