        This is great, but how do you respond to atheist, which
comonly point out the falacy of "Pascal's wager" as an argument for
believing in God, that also claims such a "A long shot is better than
no shot." is the same invalid argument? I tried to make a response
but I have a feeling that I could or should have had a much better
response to this assertion.
