God

Whether you are a believer or not, you've had to have heard about contradictions in the Bible. Believers usually try to dismiss the contradictions by claiming they aren't truly contradictions. (e.g. the contradictions in the Gospels about who finds the empty tomb.)

Pascal's Wager is a idea that religious folks, especially Christians, use against atheists all the time, even if they don't know that the idea is called Pascal's Wager. In short, the wager goes like this: If God doesn't exist you gain nothing for believing and lose nothing for believing. If God DOES exist, you gain heaven for believing and you get stuck in Hell for not believing.
