Ha, pascals wager wont work.
First, any god worthy of the name can tell if you really believe or are faking it just in case.
Second, it's only an either or if there is only one religion to chose from, given the huge plethora of god's and religions available
(even if you only include those currently extant) many if not all of which are mutually exclusive, then you have to have some
criteria to select which one is right.
Given the total lack of evidence there is no way of determining which is right.
Third, Given points 1 and 2, it is evident that believing simply on the off chance that if you don't you will go to hell wouldn't
work even if you did pick the right god/religion (assuming there is one) and that the chances of you doing so given the lack
of any evidence is vanishingly small.
The bible isn't evidence of anything for much talked about reasons.
So until you present evidence that suggests that not only their is a god but that it's the one you believe in,
I will stick with rational non-belief.
