But what if you are wrong? Why take the chance?

warrl

At least three religions (plus diverse sects of at least two of them) teach that anyone who doesn't believe and follow THAT version of THAT religion is going to hell.

So why take a chance of being wrong? Follow them all.

Oops, sorry. Those are just the exclusivist ones - the ones that say if you don't follow ONLY that version of that religion, you're going to hell. Playing it safe is a guaranteed losing strategy.

Plus, some of them would obligate you to kill yourself for following one of the others.


My response was directed to Frydaze's comment on abortion. IOW's why take a chance aborting a child when you are not sure if it is a child or not?
