pascal wager

Pascal's Wager

 

Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) was a French philosopher, mathematician, physicist and a gambler that was fond of high stakes...his soul. His wager basically states that there are two choices we can make, and two possible outcomes of that choice.

First, we can choose a virtuous life, or a sinful one. The advantage of a sinful life is immediate pleasure, with a possible cost of eternal punishment. A virtuous life lacks some of the pleasures available in a mortal existence, but has a possible eternal reward.

Then we add the two possibilities: God exists, or He does not. There are four possible outcomes: If we are virtuous, and God exists to reward that virtue, we receive infinite reward. If God does not exist, then our only rewards are whatever we receive on Earth. However your value the inherent pleasures of virtue or of sin, neither is infinite. If we lead a sinful life, and God exists and chooses to punish that sin, we receive infinite punishment. Viewed in this light, the finite pleasures of sin balanced against infinite punishment are a poor choice.

So for the wager:

Belief + God = Win

Belief w/out God = null

Sin w/out God = null

Sin + God = Loss

For Pascal, the only way to win is to believe in God and live accordingly.

The only way to lose is to not believe.


Now, for me, I can't imagine that God is terribly pleased by people that find themselves at the pearly gates, pump a fist in the air, and yell 'KaCHING! Time for the payoff, baby.' True belief is not a matter of simple choice, no matter how compelling the math may be. If the only reason one is attending church is that it seems safer than a pool hall, one has to believe that God will see thru such a stance. Bedrock, personal, core beliefs are not produced by simply weighing the pros and cons of doctrine, dogma versus the convenience of locally held services. Anyone that maintains that they just chose their religion, in much the manner one would choose a school elective, might want to consider the strength and depth of their own belief. If it is such a light matter to so choose, maybe they could try believing in The Invisible Pink Unicorn for a day.

Pascal is also operating with rather arrogant hindsight. His approach assumes that if there is a God, there is only one God, and only one religion, one standard of virtue to follow in living for that God. His wager does not consider the consequences of choosing a belief system that it was not the most correct system in the eyes of the Creator.

A more objective point of view finds that Pascal's math is equally valid for any of the following >1000 religions, sects, denominations, cults and guesses about 'WHY ARE WE HERE?' in their interpretation of Reality::

Note: While a number of sources were researched for the names of religions, religious philosophies and sects, the churches listed in Italics were collected from a site purporting to be a comprehensive listing of Cults. Proof of the (in)validity of any of the above is left to the seeker.

From the March 09, 2003 News Of The Weird: "University of California, Santa Barbara, researcher J. Gordon Melton's new edition of the Encyclopedia of American Religion lists 2,630 denominations in two dozen informal "families" (e.g., 116 Catholic flocks, "hundreds" of Pentecostal flocks), according to a January Associated Press report. Among the least mainstream: the (John F.) Kennedy Worshippers, the Nudist Christian Church of the Blessed Virgin Jesus, the Church of God Anonymous, the Church of the New Song (once offered porterhouse steaks for communion), and 22 that believe in UFOs (including the clone-happy Raelians). "
