Pascal's Wager is bullshit.
Pascal's Wager is the philosophical concept that puts the Christian faith (mainly) into 4 categories.
1.) You believe in Christianity. If it is true, you go to heaven. Nice.
2.) You believe in Christianity. It isn't true, you good. No eternal damnation.
3.) You don't believe in Christianity. It isn't true. You good, no eternal damnation.
4.) You don't believe in Christianity. It is true. You're fucked. You experience eternal damnation.
I have two main thoughts about Pascal's Wager, both of them being immoral in my perspective. That is:
It being a manipulation tactic for people to believe the Christian faith (or whatever faith people use it for).
Stemming from it being a manipulation tactic, it doesn't encourage sincere faith. It is believing in Christianity for the sake of avoiding hell and going to heaven, rather then sincere faith in Christianity.
I know there is much more regarding Pascal's Wager (e.g., the history, how it was constructed, how it is used, what other faith[s] utilize it) that I don't know about and simply didn't post because I am lazy af.
I want to hear your thoughts. Leave some comments below.
