What we force theists to confront, or Carol's Wager

For the life of me I have no idea if this* is already a thing,if it is then feel free to correct or educate me on what it is called, I wouldn't know what to type in Google to double check.

*What I am about to write, I do tend to write from the middle out sometimes.

The Doctor vs. God

It's an odd conversation to have, but there it is, would I rather live in a universe with the God of the Bible or The Doctor from Doctor Who?
