Another way to look at things would be to simply admit that we don't know the answer, and place our bet on the fact that whatever it is that created this world, either God or some higher intelligence or whatever/whoever that is, probably knows better than we do. And they must have had a very good reason to go into this huge ordeal of creating everything. And if somemone had enough intelligence to create this and put us here, there must have been a pretty good reason for it, even if it is beyond our conceptual ability. And simply to have faith in that, and go by leading our lives the way we know best.

And faith is an innate part of our lives. Every day we have some faith in something or the other. Even the simple task of planning for tomorrow, needs some faith that we will be alive tomorrow. The question therefore is whether we are placing blind faith on something, or choosing to have a faith based on some evidence and value.

Agreed there is no real yes or no answer to these questions, but as a person who had been atheistic before and have now chosen to believe, I thought I might answer if it could be even of a little bit help.
