Actually it's called both 'Pascal's Wager' and 'Pascal's Gamble', depending on your region of origin. And I am familiar with the concept—I have taught it. It is called many other things in regional colloquialisms, and it's a concept that predates both of our prior monikers. In better words,'it's a rather old maxim' that was boiled down for 'comfort'.
Pascal's Wager (or, if you prefer, Pascal's Gamble) is a logical argument and is not a "maxim."

And, if you think about it for a while, Pascal's Wager has a devastating logical error. In other words, there is an error in the fundamental assumption, and thus the conclusion is untrue. That does not stop illogical people from pretentiously citing Pascal's Wager, thinking that they are wise.

You boast about nonexistent victories in nonexistent battles, and you do so for a valid reason—you're a simpleton. You're like the RB's in the NFL who never play a down in between the 20's, yet who come in at the last moment and score a two yard touchdown while the one who did the work gets a breather—you're a Poacher.
Yet truthfully, I see you more as a 'maggot', who feasts upon the dead, produces nothing but excrement and waste, and then spends a lifetime boasting about the meal as if you killed it yourself. You have never had an original thought or concept in your life because you're just a dullard. A follower. A maggot.

I already told you 'I know Pascal's Wager/aka Pascal's Gamble'. I have taught the principle, and all so-called 'logical arguments' have a foundation in 'old maxims, old beliefs, old parables, or just old sayings'. So does Pascal's.

Having 'an error in any fundamental assumption' does not qualify as an argument for 'Pascal's Gamble'. That's why I corrected you entire premise. You chose to attack my choice of moniker's for the very same argument. There's a psychological term for that, as well. Look at 'avoidance'.

You cited Pascal's Wager/aka Gamble, I did not. I merely corrected your false premise. And now I have corrected you again. Study and stop bastardizing terms. I am not paid to be your 'phrase-keeper', but I will correct your obvious absurdities—no matter the topic.

Is all philosophical argument this damned elastic in your area of limited expertise, or did you just bastardize this premise for no damned good reason?

Please keep the hell up.

How in the hell do you think Pascal's came to be? By divine intervention? Nope. It was Pascal. He came to his ideas the same was as you—through the study of old ideals, old maxims, old premises, and old philosophical arguments—and Pascal's Wager is a VERY weak argument.

Again you are lost. I made the post of "I would rather live my live believing he exist and die finding out he doesn't rather than living my life believing he doesn't exist and die finding out he does."
Yellowdawg said it is known as "Pascal's Wager."
Then you chime in with "That was hardly Pascal's Gamble."
So yes it was "Pascal's Wager" or "Pascal's Gamble" I was speaking of in that comment. Yellowdawg was correct and you Triple are,,,,, still very lost.
I respond to 'responses'. I typed 'That was hardly Pascal's Gamble'—and I was correct.

Then you insulted me because you had no clue it was the same as Pascal's Wager—wager and gamble are the same term, and regions decide which is used.

So tell me, what is your argument precisely, besides proving that you 'have no real clue'? This is why ad hominem is used, but it's hardly tenable in such an argument. You chose it. Deal within your limitations.

Now please, respond as if you know what in the hell you're responding to, and not just a knee-jerk reaction to your blatant nonsensical equivocations.

So, insult me poorly if you will, but just because you cannot keep up is hardly a valid reason. So what is your difficulty with my assertion: "This is hardly Pascal's Gamble"—again? Or do you have one?

I was succinct and correct. Try being both.

Of course you have no clue about what I am speaking. I've had nose-hairs smarter than you. I clipped those, too.

You keep 'hmmmm'ing', you dullard. Your limitations are obvious to anyone who sees you crawling out of a pile of dung. Even Old Yeller knows you're a blathering idiot.

A difference in opinion doesn't require fifty Christs, now go back to bastardizing philosophy. You have far too many weaknesses to stick them all in the religious portion of discussions. Just continue fooking up philosophical argument. It's cute.

This is rich if you enjoy a bipolar response to a schizoid difficulty—you insult me poorly like a a really childlike Paul Reuben skit, and then when you get your proverbial clock cleaned, you begin a rather Mr. Rogers-esque version of condescending backpedaling in the mode of the pantywaist whining of a Valley Girl in the fifteenth trimester of pregnancy.
You have posted nothing of value in response to me, and frankly, I stopped reading your blathering nonsense about three paragraphs into the 'belly of the kindergarten beast' from the 'self-professed king of an atheist monarchy'.
You have typed nothing worthy of a thoughtful response, and to date, you have only been awarded that which you deserve—credit for your SpongeBob SquarePants ad hominem. Luckily, I do not do 'childish', so I simply gave you an example of why you should never attack anyone who is clearly your superior in any scholastic endeavor or venue—science, history, theology, governance and civics, literature, or anything beyond the scope of your obvious limitations.
So if you have the means to browbeat me into submission with your inferior intellect and obese ego, prove it. Otherwise, you can return to insulting Norton badly, and when you attack me in the guise of offending Norton, I'll return and rip you the new asshole you deserve.
It never ceases to amaze me when people insult me poorly, and then find themselves cowering in the corner, beaten senseless into within an inch of their intellectual life, and then they profess their innocence while bastardizing every rule of civil discourse known to humankind, all in a vain effort to save themselves from obvious ridicule, albeit expected and well-deserved.
So let me put this in the nonsensical rap terms you might be able to comprehend within the framework of your obvious Linus' Security Blanket personae.'You ain't no gangsta, Charlie Brown.'
Is there anything else you would like to add, or are you just going to sit their with your flaccid penis in one hand, and your Nero's fiddle playing in the other? I did not burn your Rome—you set it on fire while attempting to sharpen your baby-teeth of intellect on my shin, and all the while you're complaining about the smoke coming out of your arse and garret.
You're operating a wit without a license or a clue. Awaken me when you reach remotely funny. Then I'll chuckle, pat you on the head, and let you return to your delusional world where you reign supreme—with your ilk of liberal idiots and socialist reach-around buddies at your side while you hang upon your cross of blatant foolishness and they hang upon your every word for intellectual sustenance. That explains why they're emaciated.
Your vocabulary lacks more than anyone could teach you in three generations, your grammar is relatively 'ordinary'—acceptable for a 'forum comprehension', and your personae would fit in rather nicely with the fifteen other voices buzzing around just inside the foil hat you wear so neatly.
Yet I must admit I did grin a little when you mentioned your 'philosophical superiority'. Methinks the gangsta rap has infested your mind with delusions of punctilious-yet-trite grandeur.
Edited for space. See TN
I never wrote any of this, but whoever did has surely felt the sting of my incredible intellect. You can tell by the length of a rant like this. A person would concoct such nonsense to show everyone how much better they are than me if I had just pounded them into the sand.

If you are going to fake a quote, you better learn how to use Topix.

Atheism may not be "growing by leaps and bounds," but nevertheless it is growing, worldwide and in the United States.
According to a WIN-Gallup International poll reported August 2012, religiosity worldwide is declining while more people say they are atheists. In the United States, a growing number consider themselves non-believers.
http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Global-News/20...
(I will point out that "atheism" is not monolithic. There are various levels of non-belief. For example: agnostics,'weak' atheists, and 'strong' atheists. Simplistically, those levels correspond to "not sure there is a god," "possibly there is a god," and "no way is there a god.")
Thanks for the info Dawg. I need to update my knowledge of the trends in religion and belief.
