God on Nightline

It's nice the mainstream media pays any attention to religion, but last night's debate on God pretty quickly degenerated into the usual impasse:

"Beauty! Perfection! Goodness! Truth! Explain that as one big accident, Atheist Boy!"

"Cancer! Birth Defects! Drought! Famine! Explain that as the act of a Loving Creator, God Boy!"

That's where the debate's always gotten hung up, it seems to me. So Pascal (and similarly Qoheleth and others) will always have the last word: it's a gamble - a 50/50 gamble with your life at stake. Welcome to the Real World. Thanks for playing.
