18JAN2019 – Quote of the Day

“Either Christianity is true or it’s false. If you bet that it’s true, and you believe in God and submit to Him, then if it IS true, you’ve gained God, heaven, and everything else. If it’s false, you’ve lost nothing, but you’ve had a good life marked by peace and the illusion that ultimately, everything makes sense. If you bet that Christianity is not true, and it’s false, you’ve lost nothing. But if you bet that it’s false, and it turns out to be true, you’ve lost everything and you get to spend eternity in hell.”

Blaise Pascal

What about an infinity of choices including: Christianity contains elements of but not the totality of The Truth?

How about this headline from Britain’s Daily Sun:

Humans to download their SOULS onto microchips so they can ‘live FOREVER’
PEOPLE will be able to download their “souls” onto microchips, implant it into another body and live forever, a technology expert has claimed.

Seems to me that claim presupposes a number significant of assumptions. Beyond arrogance onto stupidity.

Fairly common Sci-Fi centerpiece though.
