  • My husband shared this great bit of philosophy with me the other day which I thought was so good and so relevant to us as human beings I wanted to share it with you. It is a simplified take on Pascals Wager.

    At the end of this life there are two doors and we have no choice but to walk through one of them.

    The door on the left opens to either:

    • Oblivion, or

    • The worst existence you can possibly imagine.

    The door on the right opens to either:

    • Oblivion, or

    • The best existence you can possibly imagine

    I don't presume to tell you which door is which, but I can tell you that you have to choose your door while you're still alive. Once you're dead it's too late.

    If both doors open onto oblivion then it's no big deal but, if they don't, the stakes are very high. Don't you owe it to yourself to be sure you're going to walk through that door on the right?

    It's up to you and I as intelligent reasoning human beings to investigate, collect evidence, and determine the truth for ourselves.

    Thanks for reading.
