Anyhoo, this God/No God thing is what Pascal's Wager is about. The argument goes roughly like this: If you believe in God and it turns out God does exist, you get everlasting yadda yadda yadda. If you don't believe, and it turns out God exists, you get eternal damnation, or exile to New Jersey, or something. But if you believe and it turns out there is no God, what have you really lost? Thus, you might as well believe.
There are arguments against this philosophy, of course.posted by aaron at 11:17 PM on March 2, 2001
