Logic is a strange thing. I think most people would consider something logical if it makes sense to them. But this thing about god is just too far-fetched--at least the gods of the religions. The gods of the religions demands us all to be good, kind to others, loving etc. Yet god himself can lose his temper and go on a killing spree. We see no justifications for such behavior, and so far god apparently has no desire to explain his acts because we are just too dumb to understand. Therefore we are expected to just accept his actions solely on faith. Well, not all of us can do that.
I think one should not be mistaken that 'logic' must be something that is right. We may be wrong. For example, I think it is logical to assume that in this vast universe, there are other lifeforms in a far away solar system. My logic is that if it can happen here on earth, then it can happen elsewhere too. If it can happen randomly here, then the same thing can happen there. BUT! I may be wrong! In a faraway galaxy, maybe the Newton Law may no longer be correct. Maybe some other laws of physics would be applicable. Maybe apples would 'fall' to the sky instead of to the ground (although this is an unlikely scenario in my opinion).
But when it comes to god, we see no logic. There are just too many inconsistencies about the gods of the religions. God says don't kill, yet he himself kills. And when we question such act, the religious people often say, well, he has the right to kill what he has created in the first place. Ask yourself from the bottom of your heart, do you really buy such craps?
