No.

Because there is no evidence for the existence of a god, and the attributes given to gods by humans are often contradictory or logically impossible.

"Owl," said Rabbit shortly, "you and I have brains. The others have fluff. If there is any thinking to be done in this Forest - and when I say thinking I mean thinking - you and I must do it."

I would like to say no, but I do have concerns about the flying spaghetti monster, and the invisible pink unicorn who doesn't do anything.

No.

I find it hard to even imagine what an all powerful entity would want with a planet that isn't even conceivable from the edge of the known universe. We are insignificant on a universal level.

Plus, science is uncovering more and more every decade regarding the beginning of our universe, planetary formation, etc. etc. It is only a matter of time before god goes the way of the gods of Mount Olympus.

Here's a quote from Carl Sagan which supports my first point above:

"Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

RE: Do you believe in God?
I don't believe in religion because religion is just wrong. Let's ignore the bible and the specific god of the Christians for now.
Let's say that some god, assuming "yours" (The Christian's god), told you that you must be a good person or you'll go to hell.
Now let's assume that there's a different religion that believes that you need to murder people from different religions, just as it says on the Jewish bible (Which is just horrible >_>).
There's no way, absolutly NO WAY to know that your god is the right one.
If "my" god is the right one, then every Christian is going to hell.
But if my god is wrong, then I'll be going to hell.
Throughout the history, there has been thousands of gods made by humans. Believing in just one god is simply not safe for you.
Why would you waste your life for a small chance of going to heaven, when there's such a large change that you would be going to hell instead?
I would rather live my life, instead of wondering about religion.

No, and for very much the same reason as quoted by Carl Sagan in supermanlives1973's post (great quote, by the way). On the scale of the universe, we're pretty damn insignificant.
