pascals wager is a fairy tale
Debate Rounds (5)
It isn't a "fairy tale", but is a simplified version of a Theist's point of view on the matter. Both sides might disagree on reality, but it is "worth a chance" that the Theistic position is right. If your wrong, you don't lose anything anyway.
Using an analogy like you are doing misses the point of Pascal's Wager. If you dislike it, then give a logical reason for how it is wrong. Not an irrelevant analogy in order to attack it.
Truthfully, if you want to refute Pascal's Wager, don't use some irrelevant hypothetical attack. I want to know, what part of Pascal's Wager is incorrect?
i am showing you pascals Wager..
pascals wager=if you dont jump one time for me real fast alpha, you might fall and snap your neck just because i mentioned it
shouldnt you do it then? just do what i tell you
And again you use an analogy. Your analogy fails, because it isn't relevant. People aren't going to hid in a cushioned room just because they are afraid of death. Possibility is real. I agree with you. But why is Pascal's Wager wrong? Please, please stop using those examples.
and atheism is simply the belief that there is no god, nothing more
belief that logic is true is theism
the neutral position is the maybe position, i accept i dont know
i am using pascal... tell me why you didnt jump to answer your own question about why pascals is wrong
possibilities are imaginary, not real.
I see nothing wrong in particular with Pascal's Wager. If there is, I would like to hear about it.
this is pascals.. total non sense
you dont go to hell if you believe... you might not snap your neck because i mentioned it, if you jump
is it not possible that i am right? and that you might fall and snap your neck, just jump 1 time for me real fast man dont worry about it
All I see is that you simply dislike the idea of Pascal's Wager.
