"You have had opportunities to inquire more about God from a sincere heartfelt need.
You have no way of knowing what that has already cost you or what it will cost you in the future.
You have no way of either wanting or enjoying the blessings that only God gives."

That isn't EXACTLY Pascal's Wager, which is what I said -- it's a VERSION of Pascal's Wager.

You should believe in god. Because if you DON'T believe in god, it'll cost you.

I experience the exact same kinds of coincidences, and feelings, and sensations. But I don't assume they were the result of anything supernatural.

And you'll arrogantly claim, without ANY evidence, that the things I'VE experienced are nothing like the things YOU'VE experienced. That somehow your experiences are more intense, or more meaningful, or more miraculous.

We're all the same kinds of beings, with exactly the same physiological makeup, and as a result we experience the exact same feelings and sensations.

And none of it is supernatural.
