So, here I am watching Numb3rs, and frickin' Larry busts out with Pascal's Wager. If you're not familiar with it, here's a nice example:
That's your argument? *facepalm*
I shoulda expected it from him, metaphysical monk-loving wackjob that he is.
It's just annoying:
1) P's W assumes a single deity, and ignores the fact that there are a multitude of often opposing religions.
2) P's W assumes that god (or whatever) is too retarded to detect cynical insincerity.
3) P's W forgets that you do loose things, albeit to varying degrees, in any given religion. Time, logic, rationality, self determination, free will, a sense of personal freedom... and much, much more.
Damn it, if you're gonna make an argument, at least make a new one. Fail.
Yes... expecting originality from the t.v... I know. Silly me.
No, but really...
The boss is on vacation this week, so I'm super tired. Finally have a day off tomorrow, which I will use to rest and shoot things, maybe actually explore Liberty City.
Also, coming up next month, the bestest birthday outing evar: a great new exhibit is opening at the Exploratorium on my birthday! Win.
