Have you ever heard or have told somebody “What if you’re WRONG?!? If I’ve lived my life as though god exists and I die and there’s a god, I goto heaven. If I die and god does NOT exist, I’ve lost nothing”
This is also known as “Pascal’s wager” (google it if you want) and it’s really a terrible reason to believe in ANY god.
1st- You think your god doesn’t know that you’re just believing to cover your butt? Would he be happy about that?
2nd- Why are you conveniently ignoring the other THOUSANDS of gods being worshipped today? How do they all factor into your equation?
3rd- How much money and time did you waste in your one and only life worshipping a fairy tale god? You do have some loss if you are wrong.
4th- Please explain to me How I can ‘choose’ to believe in Any god when I KNOW there is no evidence for ANY of them? Do you want me to LIE and PRETEND to believe? Is that OK? Because if I told you I believed right now, I would be Lying. We do not choose our beliefs…we must be Convinced!
5th- And my Favorite response to this question
