Kirk, thanks for giving us Gervais' humor.

It slowed the pedant in me who would insist that as often presented, Pascal's Wager looks at only two of the four outcomes: there is/isn't a god and I obey/disobey that god's rules.

Graphically, analysis requires a two-by-two truth table, and people who consider only two of the outcomes before they place their bets are as foolish as theists.

In short, life offers more than theists see.
