What you describe is a process of confirmation bias. Been there done that. It isn't evidence of anything more than man's ability to believe weird stuff.
So anyone who without having up to this point in time any reason or evidence whatsoever to believe there is such a thing as a god must beseech and thank this god? How would one do that exactly at this point in time? Doesn't make any sense. What makes less sense is this god sending people off to suffer eternally for failing to do this with no reason whatsoever to do it - at this point in time.
You ask GOD to reveal HIS reality to you. But that means realizing that God may have send an idiot like me to answer your questions.
