"...the rube..."? You just crossed the Rubicon for the umpteenth time into Barbarity again, my bri ...

"Jesus was the man that serves as a moral leader since his death two millennia ago to this day."

You keep denying that China has a 5000 y.o. history, but you are quick to promote your own 'two millennia' fiction!  You have underestimated Forumites' IQ!

  1. It's a pity there are so many who are incapable of rational thinking.

Let us try to  "think" :

Pascal's Wager: God Is, or He Is Not. You Must Wager

(French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher Blaise Pascal (1623–1662).

Given the possibility that God actually does exist and assuming the infinite gain or loss associated with belief in God or with unbelief, a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss (some pleasures, luxury, etc.).


The philosophy uses the following logic:
1.        God is, or He is not.
2.        A Game is being played where heads or tails will turn up.
3.        According to reason, you can defend neither of the propositions.
4.        You must wager. (It's not optional.)
5.        Let us weigh the gain and the loss in wagering that God is. Let us estimate these two chances. If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing.
