Let's assume that there is a Creator of life who gots things started eons ago. That's my persuasion, although I am not actively religious.
One major problem with belief in a Creator is that he/she/it is supposed to be benevolent, loving and caring. Many evangelical Christians feel he has helped them personally in various ways, emotionally, even financially. Whereas billions of other people who REALLY could use God's help (those who are abused, or in war-torn lands, or starving or diseased, etc.) suffer endlessly through no fault of their own.
Why doesn't God reach out and help those who need it?
When in the religion, we continually heard that God was the "hearer of prayer". Suppose at any given moment 27 million people (rough estimate) are saying a prayer to an Almighty One. How can the Creator possibly pay attention to all those people at once? Does time warp/slow down so much that this Creator can personally consider each prayer and direct a thoughtful answer to each one?
My take on it... The Creator does not personally care for each and every person, because it isn't possible. There's just too much "buzz" with all the events going on and those prayers being said.
Prayer may help a person psychologically or even spiritually. But it doesn't seem provable that any results come from them.
I guess I just don't have enough faith.
