i dont.
i think 'believing' in something is bad thing
it's a backdoor.
if you are open to 'believing in things without proof' you are easy target to scam artists 'hey believe me! you can win in three card monte.. look that guy just won!'
oh
religion is biggest scam in the first place.

I give most things in life a chance, and I've seriously tried religion twice in my life, but the only way I can understand how a logically-minded person can believe the arguments to support religion is if that person was ingrained in it from a child or feels they need certain emotions it gives them, neither of which I have.

Nope, I,m perfectly content with my well-being and mental state as it is. I'd also need a lot of hard evidence for me to change my mind, nothing short of a true impossible miracle. (like God himself turning the sky purple, reshapign the clouds into letters and a booming voice saying "Here I Am! I Exist LOL!" with most of the population to testify that I wasn't in fact halucinating. ;)

I completelly respect those who are religious, and do not think less of them, unless they try to forcefully push their non-mutual ideals onto others or harm people or go to war in the name of religion or God.

It doesn't work that way, unfortunately. Remember that well known quote from Artur C. Clarke ? "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic". Simply replace magic by miracle. Even if something you outlined above happened, it wouldn't prove anything related to the existance of a "God". It could just be some individual, some company, nation or even extraterrestrial life with access to a technology more advanced than ours, who is playing God.

In the old times, miracles were proof of divineness. Not so today. Lightning was supposed to be a sign from Thor or Jupiter. Today, one could create such a "sign" artificially without much trouble. Let's look at Jesus. Healing the sick and blind ? Just look at modern medicine. Returning from the dead ? No problem today, although only for a short time period (eg. after a cardiac arrest). Turning water into wine ? Probably possible with some chemical tricks, or a large particle accelerator ;) Walking over water ? Well, we're not there yet, but given some kind of anti-gravity device, you could do all sorts of funny "miracles"...

All that to say that miracles are a dime a dozen. They don't mean anything anymore today. There are no "impossible" miracles, if you factor in the possibility of a more advanced form of technology.

Do i belive in God ? No, I don't. Does it matter ? No, it doesn't.

Nope, I gave religion alot of thought when I was younger. Didn't change a thing. It didn't make myself feel better either, so I stopped caring about it

Now I just have the same opinion as ToohrVyk
