"I believe atheists are taking a huge risk on their lives, eternity is a long time" tl;dr...
Occam's Razor slits Pascal's Wager up a treat. Besides (emphasis added)...:
'Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.
Seems this ancient Roman won the bet before Pascal had even been born to make his 'Wager'...! [/smartarse]
And of course, even before then, seeing as Cybertronians are millions
of years old...:
'I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message so that our past will always be remembered. For in those memories, we live on.
-Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen), "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"
And one fiction is just as good as another. Amirite?!
Ryo: 'Hmm! Ok! Now you're saying you must have PHYSICAL EVIDENCE in order to believe in something? What about faith?'
I've seen a flying car. Specifically a Vauxhall Astra VXR flying around the studio in an episode of BBC's "Top Gear":
Also, another flying car at the NEC Arena; again, "Top Gear"-related:
(oh, and what Tom Cruise Control doesn't realise in the above pic, is that it's Xenu under that helmet!
Some say, that he can only be heard by cats. And that he has no concept of 'faith', because it has yet to prove it's existence to him.
All we know is... he's called The Stig!
Moral: Now, Ryo. If I'd told you that I'd seen a flying
car, would you accept what I'd said as fact, on 'spec'; purely on 'faith'...?
And now you - and all
your fundie ilk - know why
we're Atheists. One word: Trust. As in if someone - who claims to be a trustworthy
friend - says they'll meet you at a certain place
at a certain time
, and if they do
, fair enough. If they borrow your car - or a sizeable amount of money - and return/pay back such (intact & perfect condition with the former; if with a little more besides - interest - with the latter, all the better. If, on the other hand, they arrive late
- or not at all; and should they return with your car damaged or not at all; or without
your money, then you would disown that so-called 'friend', and find a new one.
Welcome to Planet Reality. 'Faith'? Doesn't exist here. But then, it - like what the very thing one is supposed to 'believe' in via this nonexistent concept, certainly not in the minds of sane people in this dimension, doesn't exist.
Even the Invisible Pink Unicorn - and His Noodliness the Flying Spaghetti Monster - can be seen
. Where is your so-called 'Faith' now, fundies?!
