    To be honest I think a better question is what behaviour arises from beliefs and the consequences than what the beliefs are, at least in questions of this nature, at the very least Pascal is more reasonable to me than the whole canon of atheists and confirmed agnostics.

    When the balance sheet of secularism/atheism vs. religion is drawn I'm willing to bet that religion has had more positive consequences for the world than its detractors.

    God definitely exists. He's the one who secretly provokes these trillion retarded threads on the internet. Who else could mastermind this?

    He might be a troll, I don't know.

    Who's redscorpion? Sounds intriguing.

    I googled it and got a Dolph Lundgren movie. As much as I like him, I don't think he's God.
