THere is an existence of 50%:50% chance of hell and heaven. If i belive in their existence and live a justified life avoding sins in this world then after death if really hell and heaven exists then it is benifitial for me. When a devotee is preaching spiritual knowledge to the world, he has no power to show hell to the atheist. In such a case, the 50-50 probability will bring the same solution of believing in hell on seeing it. One may not see hell directly in the 50-50 probability argument, but, the logic in the 50-50 probability argument will certainly provoke the intelligence to take a decision on the safer side and control the sin even as benefit of doubt avoiding the risk of doubt. When you can achieve a result by logic itself, why should you bother about direct perception? In inference, the same knowledge of perception is attained even though there is no direct perception. Sometimes logic gives better, finer results than perception. If you show hell to a person, the person may be so much frightened that, from that day onwards, he stops eating, drinking and sleeping, and dies in few days, is it worthwhile?I wonder what evidence convinces the theists?
