An alternate Pascal's Wager

Everyone knows Pascal’s Wager. I’ve had it thrown at me a lot of times. The problem with it is that it neglects a lot of other parts of the equation (to say nothing of the idiocy of “choosing” what to believe by way of logic). So I decided to give my alternative.

You can choose either not to believe in Allah or to believe in him. If he isn’t real, well then when you die you just become nothing and will suffer no consequences for your actions. But if he is, martyring yourself will give you 72 virgins. Thus, the rational man will become a suicide bomber.

NOTE: Any of you who become suicide bombers due to my bulletproof logic please do not cite this page in your final note to your families.
