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. Many religious interpretations seem to indicate that one need not search out g-d
