Oh yes, another more important point. In Pascal's wager is the
unstated assumption that you can actually control what you
believe. The notion is that to be saved by god, you must believe
in him/it. Well, what if you decide the evidence is lacking? Have
you any choice, can you choose to believe? I believe we cannot
control what we believe. No choice. spike
