    Pascal's wager has been debunked so many times it's foolish that people still think they can use it in argument.

    I would be very surprised if someone came on an tried to use it to argue their belief in God, or maybe I wouldn't because this is TSR after all. But...I'm sure there is still interesting discussion to be had about it, about Pascal, his beliefs, his other work, how the two existed side by side, his contribution to mathematics and even this silly wagers contribution to decision theory. I think there are some who will find it interesting/amusing...
