I'm an Atheist. Why should I believe in a god? Which god? and why?

I'm considering god, but need a rational reason to actually believe. I would never take blind faith, as you could end up in any religion just dependant on the influence around you.

Anyway, I'm searching, but need a rational way to decide.

Well right there you muffed it. Serving God and being called to him is not rationally decided. It is a saving work of the Holy Spirit. God doesn't need you. Faith comes when you, the creation, realize you NEED your Creator.

Yeshua (Jesus) tells us what we must do to be called by YHWH. It's up to YHWH (God) to decide to call us, but first we must not fear to be exposed of our sin.
John 6:44 Jesus said "No one can come to Me, unless the Father who sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up on the last day.''
John 3:19-21 For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. “But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”

We can't approach the Presence of God unless we stop being fearing exposure. Then when we "practice truth, we are allowed to come into the Presence of God.

Now what those two things mean, is complicated and you'd need to do some serious prayer for the Intercession of the Holy Spirit to understand it as well as using your mind to look at the original language. Only then could you hope to comprehend it.

Not all are called, and for a reason (at least some).
