By the way, I've known about Pascal's Wager forever. I just didn't reference it as that. And I agree its a shallow argument but it sometimes helps people that can not think beyond the realms of logic and reason or physical rules and laws.

Well, isn't that special!!!

I could say it's because thinking beyond the realms of logic and reason is typically called a fantasy, and that such fantasizing - while great for writing fiction - produces nothing else of any use whatsoever.

I could say all those things, if I had the slightest inkling the person I was talking to was capable of grasping whatever small portion of reality they still have access to.

I have no such inkling - so I won't.

Happy close-to-spring day!
