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.

I think believing in something can give people hope and faith...especially in rough times. Some people say that's a bad thing because to them it's not "real," and it gives people a false sense of security. Imo, anything that can give people some hope in times of need can't really be all that bad. I don't really know what exactly it is I believe in, but I do believe there is something out there far greater than me, something protecting me, guiding me...even when the going gets rough and I have my doubts there is.

I don't think others can decide for you.

That is good. It doesn't control your actions and maybe helps you to be good as a person. It's not like your quoting bible verses at people that don't make sense to them or other things that alienate you.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32076855

Anything that involves quoting bible verses in order to justify one's own actions or to chastise someone else for theirs...I have a problem with.

Have you read anything about The Tao? I'm just learning about all of it, it's pretty inspiring.
