I've never understood the mindset or logic that can settle on one god; to me it just has too many problems. Below are a few questions that illustrate these problems and my reasoning for why I don't believe one can rationally believe in one particular god, assuming you were to believe in a god in the first place.
Why is your god the real god? BECAUS HE IS
If it’s because your holy book says so why then are other holy books false and yours true? THEY ARE ALL TRUE NATAS MIXED THEM UP TO DECIEVE YOUALL
If this is because your holy book says it’s the only truth or that your god says he’s the only god, what about the other books and gods that the say the same thing? AGAIN ALL HOLY BOOKS HELP TO SEND ALL HUMANS TOWARDS THE POSITIVE DIRECTION NATAS MIXED THEM TO DECIEVE YOUALL
If it's because your book described known real events or people what of other books that do the same? THEY ARE ALL ATTEMPTING TO SEND YOU ALL TO THE LIGHT NATAS CREATED CRUSADES, FOR RELIGIOUS SOULS WEIGH HEAVY IN HELL TRUST ME
If it is because the authors were just writing fiction, deluding themselves, mistaken or being influenced by a malevolent force, how do you know the authors of your book weren't as well?I KNEW GOD BEFORE ALL YOUR AUTHORS SO I CAN SEE THE LIES INPLAY
If your god is real because you feel him/her/it, what about when someone of another religion says that they feel their god?THEY FEEL THE SAME GOD
Perhaps they're feeling your god but then perhaps you're feeling theirs? PERHAPS, I DONT NO HIS NAME YOU HAVE TO MANY NAMES FOR HE BUT HE KNOWS YOUR GOOD INTENTIONS
If it is because they are deluding themselves, mistaken or being influenced by a malevolent force, how do you know you aren’t as well?I NOW MY SPIRIT IS NOT AS ALL OF YOURS ON EARTH AND SPACE
If your god is the real god because you've spoken with them, how do you explain people talking to other gods or even fictional characters?THEY SPEAK TO THE SAME CREATOR WHO CREATED THEM AND GAVE THEM THE MIND TO THINK
If it is because they are deluding themselves, mistaken or being influenced by a malevolent force, how do you know you aren’t as well?MY SOUL SEES WHAT MANY WHO ARE CONSIDERED HIGH PRIEST AND HIGH GOVERNMENT CANNOT SEE
If your god is the real god because he/she/it can perform miracles, what do you say to other religions that claim similar miracles?THE SAME GOD DIFFERENT NAME AND LOOK, HENCE NO IMAGES
If it is because they are deluding themselves, mistaken or being influenced by a malevolent force, how do you know you aren’t as well?YOUR ARE REPETITIOUS IN YOUR TOUNG AS IF YOU ARE AN INTELLIGENCE FIRM HUH
If your god is the real god because your belief has brought good fortune to you, how do you explain the wealthy who pray to a different god or those who share your god but don't share your luck?I AM NOT BLESS WITH LONG MONEY I HAVE LONG BLOOD CURRENCY
And if you can't answer any of these questions, if you can't come up with any real reason as to why your god is the real god, why then believe at all?HE SENT ME TO ASSIST HIS SON AND LAY A RED* CARPET FOR HIS HOLY BORN 1
To those who think their god is just one of many gods, if this is the case does this fit with what your god says? Does he/she/it claim to be the only god and if so does this not then mean your god is a liar? And if that's true why would you want to worship a liar? THE LIAR IS THE 1 YOU BELIEVE WILL PROTECT YOU FROM THE SUN FRIEND *CING*
Thanks for you replies. YOUR VERY WELCOME KNOWLEDGE SEEKER
PS – I may update this post with additional questions if they come up.

It's like trying to put an Apple OS on a Commodore 64.

Brilliant! Such questions no religious person can answer adequately.
Look at the anger in the replies, especially the 1st one. The poster doesnt even attempt to answer, but rather attacks you. The answers another poster gave to your questions are just silly and non-factual.
More importantly, by the way you phrased your post, I assume you already knew there's no way of knowing I'm right
For me to say my faith is right and yours is wrong seems very arrogant to my way of thinking.
