The year is 2050. The government has become strongly atheistic, banning all mention and reference to anything about God. Public prayer, religious paraphernalia, and scripture reading/reciting is punishable by death. The government then develops a new technology which can detect religious thoughts and activity. This technology involves a microchip inserted on your brain. The government decides to use it on its citizens. Government officials go door to door chipping every man woman and child. Anyone who refuses the implant is shot on site. Laws pass, one of which condemns all religious activity, including prayer in your own mind. The government has full power to execute anyone detected to have participated in such activity. Essentially, you are given two options: 1) Pray and conduct religious activity which will surely lead to your death. Or 2) Abandon your faith completely and live. My question is two-fold... Do you abandon your faith, or do you risk death? If you choose the latter, continue reading and answer the next question. The government then decides that their efforts were not persuasive enough to rid of all religion. They enact a policy where the believer is imprisoned but gets to live. However, they also execute an innocent child because of your acts. Do you continue believing? Do you abandon your faith?
