I am a rationalist. There are no religions that fall under the category of rationality. Therefore I don't need to provide a case for or against any god. It's simply not rational. Don't tell me 'It's about faith'. How would the world be if we differentiated truth from fiction by 'faith'? Imagine you're on trial for murder. There is evidence that you are guilty, but it has been proven time and time again to have fallacies. The judge tells you, "Its obvious that the argument is logically flawed, but I have faith that you committed the murder." Think about that for a while, and maybe you'll see why I, and many other rationalists like myself, deny that there is, or ever has been any god.

Perhaps you could elaborate on what you would consider 'rational'? I consider my religion to be immensely rational, which is partially why I believe in it. Blind faith is for the ignorant.
