Pascal's swindle

Blaise wanted to borrow some dough
For an investment he said would grow.
"I'll pay back tenfold,
Before fall takes hold!"
But I frowned, and let my doubt show.

To every concern he'd reply,
"How can you ignore stakes so high?"
Then he'd up the reward
Infinite! Absurd!
All I could say was, "Nice try."
Suddenly I think we should turn all arguments for and against God into limericks.  Give them the level of seriousness they deserve.  But I don't like poetry, so someone else would have to do it.
