Pascal's Wager is finding ever more defenders who aim to undermine the
old Many Gods Objection. It is my thesis that they are mistaken. After describing
the Wager and the objection, I report on Jeff Jordan's repeated attempt to limit
legitimate religious hypotheses to those that are traditional. In separate sections I
criticize Jordan, first coming from epistemology and second from anthropology.
Then I describe George Schlesinger's repeated appeal to the ‘simplest’ religious
hypothesis, and argue that it fails for similar reasons. Finally, I summarize and
reject miscellaneous defences of Pascal by Robert Anderson, Bradley Armour-Garb,
James Franklin, Joshua Golding, and Nicholas Rescher.
