The British gambling site PaddyPower.com is offering odds of four to one if you are willing to put money down on your faith that there is a God. Odds started at 20-1 when betting started two months ago but a flurry of small bets totalling around $10,000 so far have pushed the odds down to 4-1. The bookmaker stands to lose upwards of $100,000 if proof of the existence of God is ever found, but their money is probably safe for quite some time, as a spokesperson for Paddy Power said that confirmation of God’s existence would have to be verified by scientists and given by an independent authority before any payouts are made. Which is basically another way of saying if you give us your money you’re not getting it back. (The Telegraph)
