The first thing I believe in is a Creator God. Here's why:
He created us out of only 2 cells - I can't grasp the miracle in that, its just so amazing to me. I can't fathom how in 7 short weeks, those 2 cells look like this. I also love how His creation has similarities and differences across species, but preserves His ingenuity and perfectness. The second things I believe are that, in seeing His creation, I can also see that I am nowhere near as smart,
so can deduce that I don't have what it takes to be a creator god myself. I can also see through His work here on earth, there are more important things than having virgins and money after I die, and/or be reincarnated as an ungulate. That, to me, leaves only the Bible and Jesus to answer my "if God, then what?" question. I've thought about this a lot, and this is what it all comes down to for me. Everytime I have doubts about God, and what might happen to me when I die, I go outside and study creation. I can't deny the existence of God everytime I see a perfect flower, or a funny little frog. Neither can I deny His goodness, or His obvious love for me, everytime I hold my happy baby or my loving husband. Thank you God.
