Does Atheism Make Sense

Q: What do you say to somebody who tells you that he is an atheist?

A: I like an argument a guy named Blaise Pascal used. Atheism doesn’t make much sense because if you die as an atheist and it turns out that there is a God, then you could end up in hell. But if you die as a follower of God and it turns out that there is no God, you haven't lost anything. It’s not a very strong argument for believing in God if someone doesn’t already, but it is a very strong argument against atheism.
