We start introducing logical fallacies by discussing the no true Scotsman fallacy.
This episode wastes most of your time with a discussion about Pascal’s Wager: a dubious bet for 350 years. Feast your eyes on the colorful diagram below!
- God does not exist, and you believe in Him: you are mistaken and experience finite gain or loss, depending on how your belief affects your life.
- God does not exist, and you do not believe in Him: congratulations for not believing in nonexistent things! Join Gabe and Erik in the orange box, where you will experience finite gain (since we’re not too bad).
- God exists, and you believe in Him: you’re right! Plan on heading up to heaven and getting passed the bouncer at the gates (whose name is Peter, by the way). Infinite gain!
- God exists, and you do not believe in Him: Oops. You didn’t believe the right things and God is pissed. Infinite loss for you.
