All Bets On

Blaise Pascal, a French philosopher, posed the following "wager" regarding believing in a supreme being, ably summed up by Dr. Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy at Boston College:
It is a foolish bet not to believe in God because if there is not God, there are no eternal rewards or punishments, so there is nothing to be gained or lost. However, it there is a God, the only chance of winning is to bet on him and the only chance of losing is to bet against him.

Back To Virture
Rich Leonardi uses that theme in this post and why we believe.
