Evidence to support is that if any of the most basic fundamental forces in the universe (gravity, electromagnetism etc) were even slightly stronger or weaker than they currently are, life and possibly even stars and planets couldn't exist. This would strongly suggest something would of had to fine-tune the universe for it to exist as it is.
Just because I believe this however doesn't mean I submit to a religion of any kind. In my opinion they are like a disease. They impose beliefs upon people when they are at an age where they cannot make an informed decision. Also the significance religions seem to imply that the human race hold in the grand scheme of everything is frankly laughable. We live on a speck of dust that has existed infinitesimal amount of time. Why would a being that has created something as vast as that care what we think or what we choose to do in our day to day lifes.
Like the Earthquake and Tsunami that recently hit Japan and then a nuclear reactor threatens explosion and radiation. The several hurricanes recently. The Trade Towers, the Middle east warring. Uncontrollable diseases. With very little good happening. I'll be it the many donations to aid the recently devastated is always good to see and hear about. The recent aid in some local education was nice to hear, and so on so forth, but nothing on a global scale, that helps thousands to millions. Of course, I personally discount any medical or educational advancements that cost the victim/student their entire life and home just to live.
These are just my opinions, I mean no offense to any who disagree. I am not bashing or flaming faith or religion.
But I mean, nothing is ever certain, so I'm comfortably Agnostic.
But I would believe in a heaven before I believe in hell. I would state my reasons but then it would turn into a debate that I don't have the time or energy to endure so... That's my opinion. It isn't right nor is it wrong.
We have explained plenty of God's away, I think jumping to conclusions is a bit far fetched, but this is way off topic so yea.
As you said it's far fetched to you, i was just interjecting my opinion.

As we've moved on as a species, we have discovered science. It's not just some mumbo-jumbo made up to scare people into believing in it, like a lot of religions seem to be, science and math are just cold hard facts, which means that if an intelligent being created us, it was extremely, extremely smart and wouldn't have such simple minded, early human civilization ideas of good and bad and heaven and hell. Who is to say that murder is wrong? After all we're just protecting ourselves by making it illegal and "unmoral". Wouldn't animals make it illegal too, if they had the ability?
If there is a god, and if there is in fact an afterlife, then it would be so much more mind-blowingly awesome than we could ever comprehend, and so, I'm not going to dwell on what I believe it could be.
