I'm not a religious person, but I do believe in some higher power and I haven't quite worked out why I even do so, the thoughts are just there.
I think evidence of the universe caring can be shown through people. Look at charity's helping people in developing countries for example.
I think that has everything to do with the fact those ideas are floating around out there. My girlfriend says the same thing when when I tell her I'm agnostic - that she feels something. I used to say the same thing until I realized it's just the leftover bits and pieces from my upbringing as a Catholic who attended a Catholic school. The older I get and the further I get away from it, the less I "feel" it.
