Pascal's Wager as an Argument for Not Believing in God

Religious Studies 19 (1):57 - 64 (1983)
Abstract
Can Pascal's wager for the existence of God be turned against the religious believer and used as an argument for not believing in God? Although such an argument has been very briefly sketched by others its details have remained undeveloped. In this paper this argument is worked out in detail in the context of decision theory and is defended against objections. The result is a plausible argument for atheism
