I recently saw this discussed on another forum, but thought I'd like to hear more opinions on it. So what are your thoughts on Pascal's Wager? Was he right to barter with logic? If you're not familiar with this idea, Pascal's Wager simply claims that belief in God is beneficial for a person because it offers reward, while non-belief in God has no rewards and possible loss. There may be a bit more to it than that, but I think that sums it up.
Quoting from an article from [i]Christianity Today:[/i]
Either God exists or he does not, Pascal writes, and you must bet one way or another. If God exists, you could gain or lose infinite happiness. If God does not exist, then you could lose at most finite pleasure. "If you win, you win everything; if you lose, you lose nothing. Do not hesitate, then; gamble on His existence."
