Maybe there is a 1 Ton Diamond buried in my yard. Of course, it is much safer to believe there is a Diamond because, if I am right, then I keep a nice stone. But if I am wrong, I will lose the diamond.
Obviously, believing, however remote the chance, that I have a 1 Ton Diamond can only be potentially beneficial, and not believing in the diamond, could only mean i definitely lose something potentially beneficial.
So I have something I might gain in believing and everything to lose if i do not believe. Right?
Okay, so where is the shovel. I need to spend my One-shot here on Earth digging looking for that diamond.
