Pascal's Wager part 1 of 3
Pascal born June 19, 1623 and died August 19, 1662 (age 39), was a French philosopher. He might have made some contributions but his legacy is his wager or gambit. If there is a God and you worship him you have all to gain, but if you don't you lose everything and burn in hell. If there is no God and you worship him you lose nothing. It is as it states a bet, a hustler's bet. Christians like to use it. They have said it to me. But if God wants a faker worshipping him over an honest person then he is not a God I would want to live with. It seems quite immoral. But this cartoon highlights that worshipping a God that doesn't exist does not come without costs.
Here is the website where I found the cartoon.
