If this happens due to abortion, there is no baby . There was a foetus, not a human being. Even the bible recognises that a foetus is not a human being until it has drawn its first breath. (Genesis)
Pascal’s wager? Really?
Being an atheist is not a choice for this atheist. Rather it was an inevitable conclusion to a search which lasted two decades. Consequently, it cannot be a gamble for me.
Say I went through the motions of believing ‘just in case’. Is your god so stupid that he wouldn’t see through that in a nano second?. Besides, Francis, the incumbent geriatric in the Vatican has said that an atheist can go yo heaven if he lives a moral life, according to conscience.
I am not an atheist with an argument [about my atheism] I am simply unable to believe but make no claims. It is the believer who makes the claims about god. To him falls the burden of proving the existence of his god(s) It is not my responsibility to disprove anything.
If anything, imo religion has been grossly underestimated for the harm it has done and continues to do to the human race.
Religion is based of faith, not reason or facts. ‘Faith’ is defined as ‘belief in that not seen’. It’s blind. Another term for blind faith is superstition.
No less an authority than Jesus himself is recorded as urging his disciples to believe blindly:
John .20:29 “Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” (JKV)
PS it’s ‘existence’ and ‘atheist’
Pascal’s wager is an argument in philosophy presented by the seventeenth-century French philosopher, theologian, mathematician and physicist, Blaise Pascal (1623–1662). It posits that humans bet with their lives that God either exists or does not.
Pascal argues that 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.), whereas if God does exist, he stands to receive infinite gains (as represented by eternity in Heaven) and avoid infinite losses (eternity in Hell).
