How can a good animadverted entertainer and intelligent gambling man in Las Vegas bet against the existence of God? Death is a 100 % sure thing. The existence of God, to the professional gambler is a 50-50 odds bet. If he bets his eternal life on the non existence of God he loses the prospect of any life after death. Not very intelligent bet. He may as well live his life for all he can get as he has no life after death. No good or professional gambler would bet against the existence of God! It is a bad bet!
