Yep.  One of the worst arguments for belief.

But what if I believe that a T. rex is getting ready to attack my house?  Will people believe me just because I proclaim my FAITH that this is true?  Would they recommend I abandon my house based on my faith?  Neither would I recommend that anyone give up all reason based on his/her faith that there is a God for which not a scintilla of evidence has ever been discovered.  After all, at least I've actually seen pictures of a T.Rex.
You can't win the lotto if you don't play! haha.. Bill Maher quote
But how much money will you sink into it before you win? Is it better to have the money you would otherwise spend on lotto tickets or to gamble and try to win big?
Many people aren't familiar with "Pascals Wager", & that's a shame.It seems to pre-suppose that god is too stupid to discern whether the person REALLY believes.
