"We lie loudest when we lie to ourselves."

but, even ignoring that, if you consider an hour each week in church, 52
hours a year
in a 70 year lifespan that 3640 hours, which if you do not believe, could
have been better spend reading, writing, loving, learning, etc. And an
hour a week is a conservative estimate for anyone who is actively
religious. Now maybe you consider that a fair gamble, hell, its an
eternity if your wrong. But you also need to consider, that most religions
only let you into heaven if you pick them. It still seemss like a silly
way to run the universe to me.
