Atheists believe there is no God, so there is no way for them that Pascal's Wager can be won.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
johnlubba

The definition of Atheist is limited to the Meriman Webster definition. "A" meaning no, and "theist" meaning believer in God, and Atheist is one who believes there is no God and Meriman Webster Dictionary clearly supports this definition. Since Pascal's Wager implies God is there or may be there to pay off on wagering that He is or may be there, you cannot play Pascal's Wager as an atheist, as an atheist believes there is nobody to pay off the bet and therefore nothing to be won by playing Pasca...

Catholicism is not Christian.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Mr.Lincoln

Catholicism is not Christian because it denies the Bible as God's Word. The main point I will use in this argument is that the Bible says we can know we have eternal life, while Catholicism dictates that it's followers are not allowed to be sure they are completely forgiven by God now........and they are not forgiven by God now, , therefore they are not Christian. Christians are forgiven by God. Catholics are trying to earn forgiveness. The only source for this debate will be the King James B...
