Best of my Tumblr Part 7- Destroying Pascal's Wager with Calculus

Pascal’s Wager is a fallacy based on Jehovah or Nobody. However it IS 50/50 Deity or No Deity so 50% for Atheism…split Deity into equal fractions for all possible deitical variations and you have 1/infinity which is the limit as x approaches zero effectively equaling 0 so there is a 0% chance for each deity and a 50% chance for Atheism.
Atheism for the win.
Also: I used calculus to do this. Mind. Blown. Calculus has a use?

Yeah, it really is that silly...



I was reading the comics as usual, and the past three days Frazz has caught my eye. I can not help but replace the Pythagorean Theorem with the Big Bang or Evolution. In doing that, this comic beautify illustrates the mindset of those that blindly dismiss these facts, based only on sheer faith. When represented in this manner, I feel it shows how childish and ungrounded their…

Google who? New Search engine

Wolfram is a new mathematical search engine that's impressive! Think about how this plays out with other search engines in the future. I hope that Mr. Wolfram has picked out his favorite private jet. Bombadier Challenger, G5, Boeing Business class...
