    I personally do not like to wager and gamble; especially if we are takling about spirituality ... I think the topic deserves a little more respect than an attitude of "let's gamble with it".
    That's just my opinion though.

    I will always remember what he said about how a drop of water is enough to kill a man ... wise words there. Cheers!

    The logic in Pascal's wager is questionable at best. It would be just as valid to replace the God in his wager with any mythical character of our choosing. And his wager fails to specify who's God to believe in and what constitutes good behavior worthy of heaven. As history regretfully reveals, religious behavior is often harsh.
