    1. you are a theist, and you are right and you worshipped ect. and go to heaven or w/e benifits you are offered for worshipping God.
    2. you are a theist and God doesn't exist, so nothing happens.
    3. you are an atheist and God exists so you are punished.
    4. you are an atheist and God doesnt exist so nothing happens.

    so if you are a theist you have a 1/2 chance of being saved or w/e benifits you get from worshipping god, if you are atheist you have a 0 probability of that. so still, it is more logical to be a theist, UNLESS you look at it from an atheist point of view.

    1. is the same as the first "1."
    2. you are a theist and God doesn't exist, so you feel shamed that you were tricked into believing in something so stupid.
    3. you are an atheist and God exists and you are punished.
    4. you are an atheist and God doesn't exist so you rub it in the theists face and you tell them "i told you so" and saved the humiliation of being tricked into theism.

    the only reason i would think somebody would be atheist is because they believe they are right, and if they believe they are right then they must like to prove that they are right. so they have a 1/2 chance of proving a theist wrong, and a theist has a 1/2 chance of proving an atheist wrong so it is 50%/50%.

    so if you are a theist you hav ...[text shortened]... theist wrong, and a theist has a 1/2 chance of proving an atheist wrong so it is 50%/50%.
    So as far as your concern truth about God only rests with what we
    get out of it nothing more?

    the first part is based apon fact, the second on opinion and wild guess. so tell me how that is stupid, or are you calling me stupid because you know the first part is true?

    The entire post is based upon opinion and wild guess. You're stupid for thinking there's any semblence of fact in there at all. Believe me, if you could see how stupid you really are, you'd be appalled. Maybe one day you will.

    if you are an atheist then there is two possibilities; you are wrong or right. if you are a theist, there is two possibilites; you are wrong or right. that is not fact?

    Because it is an either/or proposition, it does not follow that it is a 50/50 chance. Have you read any of the other posts in this forum that have already dealt with this fact? I had Dr. Scribbles spell it out for you in the 2/3 thread. If you haven't read it then I recommend you to do so immediately. If you have read it and still utter such nonsense then I'm afraid the 'stupid' label will have to be tattooed on your forehead.

    I don't think his thoughts are stupid because they don't match my way of thinking.

    I think his thoughts are stupid because they are wrong. My way of thinking has nothing to do with it.

    A moment ago you were claiming that god's existence was just as likely as his non-existence. Now you're saying you won't go into which is more likely. It seems we are making some progress.

    there is a difference between this and what dr. scribbles said, dr. scribbles says the die can be either a 3 or not a 3, but there is 5 other possiblities. with this one, there is two possibilities, his theory is flawed. God can not half-exist, he either does or he doesnt. since there is only two possibilities, it should be compared to a coin, not a die. when you flip a coin it is either heads or tails and has a 50% chance to land on heads.
