Islam says that our body stays in this world and our soul goes to another world. (Heaven or Hell)
Zoroaster and Jesus also like to say
Want better evidence?

Carefullness:

Telling things about your faith and why you believe in it is okay. Posts with the context implying that someone else's beliefs are wrong is not okay. Use the word "proof" and "evidence" with exteme caution.

You want people to respect your beliefs/religion, it comes at the cost of respecting theirs (even if you don't agree with it).

I also found the Matrix Trilogy an interesting story, ok its a very complex movie but if you think of it computerwise i was like ok what did "wachowski brothers" use to come up with a story like that! Amazing!. Matrix also has some religious stuff in it i think.

Basically Neo is a beta tester for both worlds, the dreamworld and the real world (which is basically not real either just some sort of backup world for those who reject the dreamworld). The architect plays the creator of all and Oracle is some sort of mother nature or the wife of the architect. In the end of part 3 the beta testing is done and architect resets the world into a "new version" and it happens all over again.

Also in the first part where agent smith says "the first world (first version) was a disaster because there was only peace and nothing else the whole system failed.

Now again i know all of this is fake, its still a movie but i like the way these kind of movies makes you think or expand your vision.

It seems obvious to me that there cannot be any way to prove or disprove the existence of a higher being. This is called Agnosticism. I however, do believe in a God; one single entity that created the universe.

Religion, however, seems like a practice that is overdone and boring. Should we not be able to praise Him in our own way? Did He not say that He loves each and every one of us equally, no matter what we have done or will do? That, to me, doesn't scream "Go to a church every Sunday and sing about me." I enjoy listening to some sermons, but they eventually get repetitive and redundant.

One could say that the Bible is proof of His existence, but the author himself is not God, nor is he singular. Each book in the Bible is written by a different person. Unless Jesus walks up to me and proves that he is Jesus the son of God, and that there is life after death, I will remain an Agnostic Christian.

I also believe that God created not only humanity, but other civilizations across the universe. Why would He only give life to us and make such a vast, lifeless place?

When you die, who knows what will happen. Life? Reincarnation? Nothing? Everyone will remain skeptic in one way or another until they either find out through life after death or they won't find out at all. Simple as that.

I can understand this point of view, but it just seems hopeful to me. It can be hard to let go of the notion once you were raised with it though.

A lot of people say the fact we live is proof, but recent estimates state that there are 70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars in the observable universe. Using the Drake equation, that puts up a lot of planets for the habitable zone. Science just seems a lot more confident to me, that and I don't feel uncomfortable about the lack of an afterlife.

The notion of Heaven/Valhalla/Mt. Olympus or whatever and Hel/Hell/Tarturus/Hades also seems unreasonably idealistic and also presents several paradox's.

That's not exactly evidence, as there is no proof to back up the claims made. It's just a statement. I can claim invisible dragons exist and get a few friends to agree and have the same credentials as several major religions combined. Given more people believe in religions, but they both lack any sort of physical proof. So yes I do want better evidence.
