The Problem With Pascal's Wager


  1. He makes what I perceive to be a small error, or at least is guilty of careless wording, between 6:21 and 6:37...

    "Every devout Hindu has embraced his faith for the exact same reasons you have embraced yours. Yet you do not find his reasons compelling. Nor do you lose sleep at night, fearing that if you die you'll wake up in his hell."

    Hindu's weren't the best example to use, in this instance, since they technically don't believe in hell. It would have been better to swap in the word Muslim there instead.

    Regardless, I thought this was an excellent video (and his main points remain unaffected by the mistake).

  2. Off topic but I thought you might like to read this blog
