We've all seen criticisms of Pascal's Wager; well, I present to you Keight's Wager, which states that no god would be so intellectually dishonest as to expect faith of us, and therefore non-belief in the face of a lack of evidence is what a god demands in order to get into heaven. And if a god doesn't exist, we lose absolutely nothing by our non-belief.

It's just as good as Pascal's Wager, this one...except that it more closely fits the facts. I've essentially done this video before, but it needed refining and I'm better at this now. Plus, I have a ton of new subscribers, many of whom have probably never seen the original video, so it seemed the right thing to do, to present this message again.

Excellent! Vastly superior to Pascal's whatever, and MUCH more intelligent!

I was hanging around with a bunch of people named "Kate" for a while, and to keep track of who was who, we all spelled it differently online; mine was "Keight".

Nice one. ;-)
I'm surprised no one has thought of coming up with a wager to counter the absurd Pascal's Wager until now.
Anyway, why is it called Keight's Wager when your name is Kate?
