That's the one thing I could never get about that portion of the theist population...the ones that believe "just in case". I mean, if you have to believe out of fear, in my humble opinion, it's not worth it. How is that extortion mistaken for freewill?

There are a couple ways of looking at this, the first is to hedge your bets and pick the religion that will get you the best heaven and avoidance of the worst hell. That would probably be Islam. Another way of looking at it is that the best choice is to pick no religion. From a logical perspective, it is rational to assume no God exists, based on the lack of credible evidence. This way, if you pick the wrong god, God won't be like "W T F were you thinking, I am nothing like THAT God. Go to He11." Ultimately, using Pascal's wager is intellectually dishonest. It is saying there is no obvious God, but I am just going to pick one anyway and have my whole life directed by It's concepts.
