Why do you elect to believe in a God who is unimaginable to you? Does this comfort you to think such a strange being exists?

Ancient peoples wanted gods they could understand. Why do some modern people want a God that can't be understood? I suspect it's because they figure the only way to keep atheists from arguing successfully against the existence of God is to give him attributes that can't be argued about. How can you argue about something you can't even imagine?

Why believe in the unbelievable? Does it cause a curious euphoria in your brain as your mind struggles to make sense of the senseless?
