Nathaniel Elghanayan Note I am agnostic and do not mean any of this to be offensive, though I doubt you will find it so. My first question is why don’t people chose to believe in a religion where no matter what happens they are guaranteed eternal paradise? In chapter 3 of game theory and democracy you add in the Indeterminate (insufficient information tab) to the states of nature. I think this is a vast improvement on Pascal’s system, which only looks at the expected value of rewards in the afterlife, whereas your system seems to focus on the ranking of outcomes based on searching in the current life. Can this system be modified to allow for the possibility of other systems like reincarnation where actors get the same rewards regardless of searching, could this add a dominant strategy? Also he tables in the given examples seem to reflect a world where 1) if SB exists and people do not search him out they will receive eternal torment 2) for people knowing he does not exists is preferable to looking and not finding him or being uncertain.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
