Why I’m an atheist and Pascal’s Wager.

I like your last sentence “God demands that I truly believe, he would certainly know if my faith was not genuine, which gives me a one way ticket to eternal torture (for the finite “crime” of disbelief). Pascal’s Wager fails in a very short paragraph.”

      Hi

      Thanks for your e-mail.

      The key words in a post may be put in the tags slot and one or two of them in the category slot. When one submits a post wordpress also suggests some tags blinking in the left; on could also add them just by clicking each of them.

      Welcome at wordpress. Whenever you write a post; you may e-mail it to me; I will reblog it with my comments.

      I will also like your comments on my posts in my blog.

      Regards
