I do look to Pascal when I question these sorts of things. I'm still very much a strong agnostic (agnostic by principle, not because I'm not sure), but I can't help but be some sort of theist. Pascal's Gambit, in my own words: If you are religious, and there is a (G)god, then yay! If you're an atheist, and there is no God, then you burn in hell, or you have to cross a bridge, there are various bad things that come with it (I know that there are exceptions, but that makes this post longer than it needs to be). It doesn't matter if you're religious or atheist, because if there is no God, then it doesn't matter. With this in mind, I keep an open mind, and start my prayers with "Dear God, whatever gender you are, or gods, or space..." I think it's ignorant to be an atheist, just as much as it is to be religious. We have only a drop of knowledge in a sea of wisdom, and I don't read the first page of a book and start making assumptions. Of course, we'll only ever read the first page if we don't put more energy into our space program (Ugh!), but that's another issue.
