All of them...hence why I'm an atheist. I find anything supernatural to be highly illogical. They're all on the same level of...illogical-ness. Ha.

Why would there be a difference? There's theist and atheist. No theistic belief system has any more validity than the other.

I think there is a difference. For example, I think the belief in the Biblical god makes much less sense than the Deistic belief in a creator deity who left his creation to function on its own.

As soon as you say creator entity, you've lost me.

Any belief system based upon a book written by men.  Honestly, who can produce a holy book actually written by a diety him/herself or that is not influenced by the men who wrote it?  No one.

The belief that there is a hands-off deity makes more sense, but even that is still nonsensical to me.

 Well, they are all rip-offs of the ones that came before it, so they are all illogical.

Those which make no additional claims beyond the existence of the supernatural - by Occam's Rasor.

So despite the Flying Spag Monster being fun, plain deism probably beats it.

An interesting case is the Simulation Argument version of a deity:

because, possibly, it makes some testable predictions about Digital Physics.

You can also throw in fun stuff about the quantum nature of consciousness, the observer effect, and holographic fractal creation of higher resolution laws of reality by the act of discovery, if you want to get really mystical.

Since you are using the term Illogical I have to say that they all seem equally illogical to me.  The idea of a higher being seems illogical to me as does the concept of believing in any book written by men to be 100% truth.
