If ! am never prepared to sacrifice some self-interest, then I do not think I can ever be truly moral. 45 i S­ a We can now return to the problems posed at the start of this section. If God isn't the source of morality, what is? I would suggest it is a basic concern for the welfare of others, a concern that is not based on rational argument but empathy and, for want of a better phrase, our shared humanity. The second problem was, if it is up to us to make our own moral choices, do these choices carry any moral weight?

I concluded you didn't exist. ' So, if God does exist, the most likely scenario is that he cares most about our goodness, would help reform us if we were bad, and would be big enough to not really care if we don't worship him or believe in him. So if we want to make a bet as insurance against the possibility of God's existence, then we should be good, and the rest doesn't really matter. Atheist, agnostic, or believer, it is hard to see why an omnipotent deity would favour some over the others, and we risk making a big mistake if we opt for one specific kind of religious doctrine over another.

Belief in the supernatural is belief in what there is a lack of strong evidence to believe in. Indeed, sometimes it is belief in something that is contrary to the available evidence. Belief in life after death, for example , is contrary to the wealth of evidence we have that people are mortal animals. Th is shows where I believe the real fault line between faith pos itions and ordinary beliefs lies. It is not about proof, but about beliefs that are in accord w ith evidence, experience, or logic and those that lack or are contrary to evidence, experience, or logic.
