British betting agency Paddy Power are taking bets on the existance of God.
Current odds are 4-1 that God exists – down from 33-1 at the opening of betting.
Unfortunately scientific proof is required prior to a payout being made.
Perhaps Dawkins will pull a Satan from South Park and bet on himself then throw the fight…
From the article:
“Interest in the wager has increased greatly following the recent launch of a campaign to have atheist adverts placed on London buses declaring that “there’s probably no God”.
As a result of a flurry of small bets Paddy Power, which also runs books on who will be the next Pope and the head of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales, has cut the odds on proof being found of God’s existence to just 4-1.”
“The atheists’ planned advertising campaign seems to have renewed the debate in pubs and around office water-coolers as to whether there is a God and we’ve seen some of that being transferred into bets.“
