Pascal's Roulette Wheel

I thought some of us would get a kick out of this funny (and far more accurate) take on Pascal's famous wager, the Pascal Roulette Wheel! Place your bet on the deity of your choice and let it ride. An excellent way to illustrate one of the biggest problems with Pascal's reasoning: the choice isn't between God or no God, it's between a plurality of Gods or none. Choose wisely, and good luck.


Interestingly enough, Wikipedia says that Blaise Pascal actually invented the roulette wheel. Can that possibly be true? If so, that is hilarious.


  1. OMG!

    This is the most fun I've had since the time I found out my grandfather really didn't pull my nose off.

  2. ....All the numbers of the Roulette wheel add up to 666, too.
