You aren't comprehending the basic math that in an infinite universe, or an infinite number of infinite universes, the only thing that would be amazing is if there wasn't anything seemingly amazing.
I'm not saying there isn't a god because there is simply no way I could know that. There just isn't any evidence there is one. "I don't know" is the only honest answer there is to the big question. If there is an omnipotent power who gave me the power to reason then plopped me down on a planet with 10,000 religions to choose from, that power would have to know that's the only honest answer I can come to.
I can't even tell you for sure if there's free will. I can't tell you we aren't all living in an imaginary Matrix type world and that this is all an illusion. The only thing I know for sure is that I have a consciousness that perceives "something" and that's it. I don't even know if you or anyone else really exists.
To some people this is terrifying, so they invent a much less terrifying narrative to try and make sense of it all. I'm glad I can simply marvel at the marvel of being and be content with that.
