A reader offers up a bumper sticker

Mike C. writes as part of a larger letter concerning my column on Bill Maher’s comments about Christians and their neurological disorder:

As the bumper sticker I once read said, “If you don’t believe there is a God, you had better be right.”

I’m not a gambling person by nature, but this is the automobile bumper version of Pascal’s Wager. If you bet there is a God and are wrong, you lose nothing, but if you bet there isn’t a God and are wrong, you lose everything.

I was about to say that’s got to be the only bet you can’t get odds on in Vegas, but chances are that would be a false statement.
