If You Live Under God’s Rule, Just To Play It “Safe,” You’ll Miss Out on a Lot

Drew McCoy, a YouTuber at Genetically Modified Skeptic, offers a slightly different rebuttal to Pascal’s Wager, the idea that we ought to believe in God because we have nothing to lose even if we’re wrong.

That’s not true, says McCoy. If we live under the rules of a God, and that God turns out not to exist, we’ve actually lost quite a bit. For example, you might miss out on love (if you’re gay or lesbian), or living a fear-free life, or spending your time as you see fit. There are many more examples in the full video.
