Refutation of Pascal’s Wager

Authors: Colin James III

The antecedent and consequent of the thought experiment of Pascal’s wager are not tautologous. However, to determine gain by one wager or the other is tautologous. This refutes the conjecture of Pascal’s wager as ultimately not allowing reason to determine faith. In other words, the “existence of God is possible to prove by human reason”. What follows furthermore is that the existence of God is more profitable from this thought experiment. Therefore the conjecture forms a tautologous fragment of the universal logic VŁ4.
