Ok i look at it this way:
Something greater than us had to have created us..
No matter how you slice it, we were created by something...
We will never truly find out what is beyond this world until we are dead, so its better to have faith in something other than nothing...
I think the core of most religions is correct; hence the similarities in all religion.
But, I highly doubt Religion is an explanation to our existence... They are basically just guidelines to being a good person (this is hidden in the perversions e.g. Submission through Fear, Legal Extortion).. Religion is a great thing for some people, but SCIENTIFICALLY nonfactual..
With that said, I don't think our "God" or "Creator" is benevolent or evil; i just think it's got better things to do, he did give us brains, to solve our own problems... He's (or she) got intricate trees and rainforests and all sorts of other cool # to deal with; and that's just on this planet...
I think that believing in religion is Naive but being a complete atheist is just ignorant
