Pascals Wager (Locked)
Unfortunately, you "rational" people have been disproved about 345 years ago.
Ever hear of Pascal's wager?
Therefore, we are faced with the following possibilities:
* You believe in God.
o If God exists, you go to heaven: your gain is infinite.
o If God does not exist, your loss (the investment in your mistaken belief) is finite and therefore negligible.
* You do not believe in God.
o If God exists, you go to hell: your loss is infinite and your gain is zero.
o If God does not exist, your gain is finite and therefore negligible.
That's about the long and the short of it.
Way to go guys!
