4. If you murmur thoughts privatly in your head, the fatherless man and his father (who is also himself) will hear your thoughts and may act upon them
5. If you do something bad, or something good, the same fatherless man sees all, even if nobody else does. You may be rewarded or punished accordingly, including after your death

If the answer is yes, I'd rather be SantaClaus-istian. Same quality evidence supports both movements. Savvy?

Actually, Yes. The apostles creed is exatly as you paraphrased above.
Verbatim:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:

Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell. [See Calvin]

The third day He arose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy *catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.

Amen.
