  1. Yes, it’s always amazed me that it’s supposedly such a knock-down argument when it’s no different in principle to buyIng a lottery ticket because of the massive benefit if you win, versus the negligible outlay if you lose – only in this case we have no idea if the prize money actually exists.

    And would the Big Guy Upstairs who evidently created me so as not to believe in him, then be pleased if I bowed down and worshipped him (thus going against his design) just because of Pascal’s “Oh we’ll, what would it hurt?” sophistry?
