I am an atheist, and I'm just waiting for someone to prove God exists. I'm open to either one.

I am a believer, and I think being an atheist is illogical and invalid. I can prove there is a God.

I actually know the guy who wrote the book in the picture. I went to school with his son.

I was indoctrinated as a child and as I grew up and became aware of other beliefs, I just couldn't understand how my family was so sure that all other religions were wrong and going to hell. I also can't reconcile the fact that a lot of Christians tout that God is all loving and perfect and good. Yet, when you read the bible, it is clear that the God of Abraham was a misogynist and complete psycopath. I don't understand how you can profess to 'love' a being that creates so much hate. At this point, I'm open to the concept of a God existing (a God being some type of creature that is more powerful than a human being, so really, an advanced alien species would fit my definition of 'God') but if they do exist, no one on this planet has any clue what they are really like and what they expect from us (if anything).

Considering that Atheism is a philosophical school of thought, Atheism itself can't really be more or less logical than Theism, unless you can concretely prove that some form of God or gods exists. It isn't the theistic stance that is logical/illogical, but the scientific theories that are connected to the stance. Atheists typically are more willing to accept legitimate sciences. Theists are more likely to resist legitimate science. That is what makes them more/less logical.

You cannot prove something DOESN'T exist. That's a double negative and doesn't make sense.

I can technically Be all of the above, I believe "god/goddess" is literally personified energy. Energy exists so god exisits (proof) BUT im agnostic as i am open to new knowledge and know i dont have the full story. Technically I could be called an atheist depending on your definitions, or theist. Ahhh Eclectic Wicca, making it seem like im reaching since 2000.
