"What if there's nothing to gain? This wager assumes the Christain god, and assumes that people have souls to go to an (assumed) afterlife. So what if there's a god but no souls? I've been whating to throw that in some theists face."

"Pascal dismisses all the other God and afterlife concepts without a thought... His wager is flawed from the beginning. IF he's wrong about the hindu trinity for instance then he could come back as a tick on the ass of a skunk for a couple…"

hmmm... I just would like to say that I don't agree when people say all religions are fiction and unscientific. Try to search the net and/or your library for 'scientific' religion. Yes, there is. One scientist provided that a religion supported (at least, with his interpretation) evolution.. hmmm...
If no one cares, its alright. We can live our lives the way we want to.
We have free will.
