I was thinking about Pascal's Wager today, and how utterly absurd it is. Basically, it says you're better off believing in God, than not, because if you believe in God, and you're wrong, you have nothing to lose. But if you don't believe and you're wrong, you'll have a lot to lose. So this got me to thinking, can we choose the beautiful lie over the ugly truth? I don't think so. I don't think belief is something we can directly control. It's not like I can say, I'm going to start believing...

Well, once again, I find myself discussing religion. Sometimes I feel as if I'm obsessed with the topic. I have constructed another argument that no one has even attempted to logically dispute. The argument is as follows, if anyone who is bored enough to be reading this wants to try.

It is unjust to knowingly punish the innocent
God knowingly punishes the innocent
God is unjust.

Now keep in mind, to attack the truthfulness of the conclusion, you must...
