A priest, a rabbi, and a blonde walk into a bar...
Are you like me? Are you tired of the “just in case” argument for believing in insert certain god/s here?
Here’s a nice alternative you may not have considered before. I know I haven’t. Mmm…cream cake.
I needed a laugh! Thanks!
Love it! Especially since, after having a hearty laugh, it left me thimking, "what a perfect demonstration of the absurdity of magical thinking."Humor is a valuable think, especially when it makes a point.
I sent a link of this video to my siblings, all of whom are liberal Christians. My Quaker brother replied: "One of the things that amuses me about all of this is that inherent in the question of "belief" is the assumption--on the part of many (if not most) in the faith communities around the world (and I am part of that group)--is the assumption that God focuses a very high value (if not an ultimate value as believed by most evangelicals) on the question of "do you believe" or "do you believe" in a specific way or a specific thing. My guess is that God is amused by it all.........and when I get to the Pearly Gates, he is as likely as not to say: "Well, G , like your sister L, and your dad you were wrong about most everything.........but I think you gave it a good try so walk right on in. And by the way, your brother David is already there--along with Taffy--drinking a glass of southern ice tea"I replied, "Hmmm ... so you think God is so easily amused? And I guess it's just coincidence that you and God have such a similar sense of humor?We're created in God's image or perhaps the other way around?What I liked most about the video is that for years I was frustrated knowing that Pascal's wager made no sense but could not articulate why. It seemed unfair that if I was right then we'd never know. This video points out another option that is just as reasonable or, in my mind, equally unreasonable.Personally, I think we create God in our own minds, usually in our own image (perhaps with similar sense of humor). So, my God is an atheist. He does not believe in a higher power. Hmmm, your God doesn't believe in a higher power than God either. If atheism is good enough for God then it's good enough for me. Perhaps we have the same God after all :-)"I don't believe in God so I don't know what to be thankful to but I know what to be thankful for: a loving gentle family that can drone on and on about religious issues without get angry!
Hilarious! Gonna have to remember this when someone gives me the wager, which happens like every stinkin day on FB.
