I choose to believe God does exist.

Think about it for a minute. Let's say you believe in God- if there is a God, happy day for you. If there isn't a God, no harm done. You had a happy life hoping for something after.
Now if you don't believe in God, and there is a God, you're in a not so good position. If there isn't a God, woohoo for you. You can get drunk, knock a girl up, get stuck with her, and live (not) so happily ever after.

In my opinion, there is a God. And I also am a believer in Karma. Being a good person makes good happen to you, and I like the idea of a point to life. I also like knowing I'm more than a slightly sophisticated monkey.

That's my opinion.

I believe in God, but not really in Karma. I do good deeds not because I expect something back, but simply because it's the right thing to do.

Being an Atheist doesn't mean you have no morals or guilt, Hitler was a Christian and he caused the death of millions of people.
Both my parents are Atheists and they met at university, went out for 6 years and then got married, and had me three years later.
My Dad actually knows a Catholic who had pre-marital sex and married a girl he didn't love and is now an alcoholic, so these ideas you have that Religious people have better, more wholesome lives is completely wrong, it's really about equal and an impossible to measure idea.

Or would you not take that chance and have risk of eternal suffering?

If I told you that God told me that you have to send me $100 worth of iTunes apps or else you'll go to hell, would you take the risk or burning eternally or just send me the $100?

No, because you're the one telling me to do it, not God.
