Online Betting Website Offers 666:1 Odds on Richard Dawkins Becoming the Next Pope

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power has already set the odds on who will become the next Pope. While the favorites are Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana (3/1 odds), Cardinal Marc Ouellet of Canada (7/2 odds), and Cardinal Francis Arinze of Nigeria (9/2 odds), there’s an interesting name in the mix…

Richard Dawkins is a 666/1 longshot.

If I’m doing my math right, that means a $1 bet could possibly earn you… $0.

But there’s at least a chance, right?
