Objective: Outline the arguments of Pascal’s Wager.
Mindset: Demonstrate how Pascal’s Wager was used to respond to skeptics.
Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) was a French mathematician and philosopher. Some of his scientific accomplishments included a crude form of the calculator, and work on liquids and gases which later led to advances in hydraulics. His best-known work though was his Christian apologetic, Pensees, which remained unfinished at his death. This well-known work explored the role of faith and reason. The best-known chapter is called “Pascal’s Wager” where his “wagered” bet stated that if someone believed in God and God turned out not the real, they had lost nothing, but if someone chose not to believe in God and God turned out to be real, they would lose all eternity, so it wiser to believe in God than not believe. It is a tongue-twister, but this simplistic argument has a lot of merit to it.
