Rechtvaardige god

"Bertrand Russell argued that if there were a just God, he would expect men to make proper use of the reason with which he had endowed them. Since he had not supplied them with sufficient evidence for believing in his existence, he would be displeased with those who did so and pleased with those who did not. Russell made this not wholly serious point to me in conversation. I do not know if he ever put it into print."

A.J. Ayer, Voltaire, Londen, 1986.
