Of course then don't know

Of course then don't know much in their own religion, they don't even seem to know there are religions OUT SIDE OF THEIR OWN! Why do you think they keep falling for Pascal's wager?

We must favor verifiable evidence over private feeling. Otherwise we leave ourselves vulnerable to those who would obscure the truth.
