A Meditation on Faith: Place Your Bets

What is the “faith” of a “true believer” but some timid wager on the unknown and unknowable?

… a wager on whose infinitely old invisible man in the sky is “the one true God”.

… a wager on whose “holy scriptures” contain the right formula for admission to paradise?

And a most bizarre kind of wager to boot… one that never cashes out.

Like a surreal game of roulette…

… where the wheel goes round and round and round…

… and the ball goes round and round and round…

… day after day after day…

And the ball never drops…

And the wheel never stops spinning.
