Abstract: A short review of the motivations for supersymmetry in astrophysics andparticle physics is given. Despite the amount of theoretical research conductedin the past decades, no observational evidence for supersymmetry has yet beenfound. While a large part of the community is expecting supersymmetry to bediscovered in the Large Hadron Collider LHC, some of the basic arguments infavor are disputed here. Since it is not excluded that the author-s view may bebiased by his research, he proposes a bet on the discovery of supersymmetricparticles: According to the philosopher Immanuel Kant, the bet marks thedifference between persuasion and conviction.
