That is one angle, but on a counter, without a belief in God it would mean that we appeared purely by chance from nothing and entirely randomly, we live for a short time whilst our bodies decay and then return to nothing.

That and all of creation (or random existence as we'll have to call it) have without any 'control' appeared under the same circumstances.

Love, Morals, instinct and all other things we can't see, are just random things that appeared all by themselves. I find that harder to believe than there being a divine creator behind it.

If you believe the bible then there is only one God and only one route to him and yes, Religion has in a big way become very self-obsessed but that isn't necessarily God's fault. We were obsessed with our temples and ceremonies 2000 years ago and we're still doing it now.
