Pascal – His Wager not his Theorem!


10/12/2019 (Tuesday)

8.00 - 9.30 pm

The Adelaide

Speaker: Gareth Harper

Anthony Kenny commented that Pascal’s wager resembles Anselm’s ontological argument in that most people who learn of it, whether theist or atheist, smell something wrong with it, without being able to agree exactly what. We shall consider the wager in its original context; and ask whether thereby it smells any better!
