Pascal’s Wager

"The Wager posits that it is a better ‘bet’ to believe that God exists than not to believe, because the expected value of believing (which Pascal assessed as infinite) is always greater than the expected value of not believing."


I am reminded of John Donne's famous quote, "And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee."
