He is the 'two' troll

'two' is the only way we have to identify him

This is a bible quote, right?

We.will all know when we die. That is for sure.
Ah, the old Pascal's Wager nonsense.

The question applies equally to you: What if the Bible is wrong, but the Quran (or the Vedas, or Dianetics, or The Guru Granth Sahib, or any of the countless religious texts) is true?

What if you pick the wrong god (out of the thousands) to believe in? How do we know that YOUR god is the "right" god?
