The idea of a god makes no sense

One of my new year's resolutions is to stop feeling embarrassed about my lack of faith. My growing difficulty with organised religion has finally boiled down to the fact that I just don't see any sense in the idea of a god - any god. Looking around, from the neo-conservative, christian right in America to their fundamentalist islamic partners in crime, and the post-nuclear horror in the Indian Ocean, makes me all the more confident in my complete lack of belief. Apparently this makes me a noncognitive atheist (or non-theist, as some prefer). Any other atheists out there want to come out of the closet?
