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?

I wouldn't call that calculus...more like algebra with liberal use of limit theory.

 

I like it though, Pascal's wager is indeed based in mathematics so a mathematical response is excellent. Well done.

I know xD I learned the infinity limit theories in Calculus and that makes it sound more respectable.

I just hate how Christians will use Pascal's Wager to "validate" their "theory" through "mathematics".

It wasn't even good mathematics on Pascal's part. His other work is so much better.
