Do you believe that your religion is The One, the most fabulous faith in the whole wide world? Do you have a convincing reason why your belief should be believed?
If so, you’re on the inside track to winning 25,000 yen, courtesy of The Huge Entity’s “Can You Prove Religious Superiority?” competition. Now, before you get all excited about the new car you’re going to be able to buy, I should point out that according to the XE.com currency converter your prize will be a not-so-huge $207.51.
But, hey, that would buy a bunch of Bibles, Torahs, Korans, Dhammapadas, Adi Granths, Upanishads, or whatever, to add to your current collection. So head on over to The Huge Entity and submit your entry.
The Honorable Huge, a.k.a. Mr. Danieru, says, “Prove beyond reasonable doubt that one specific religion is the only possible way the observed world should be understood and the ¥25000 is yours. Any evidence is acceptable.”
His point, of course, is that religious belief is just that: belief. There’s no proof that any belief system is superior to any other. So you take a guess, place your bet, and hope that your number comes up. The big payoff, though, only is made after death. Sounds like a sucker’s game to me, but billions of people keep on playing.
