It depends entirely on the context.
You cannot make algorithmic rules for living life.

If I say "heads I win, tails you lose" what does it matter?

You enjoy playing Lucifer in this anti-church and stand as an antagonist to the faithful. I'm just nesting within your little Hell and playing the redeemer. Inside of me, there is a small voice telling me how irrational it all is. Framing us all is Nature, which cares not whit for our reason, or our faith, but operates according to her own cycles and mysteries.
