I accept the "Roman Cross icon" at the top of this page as an indication of the game's religious content, but must also note the irony in choosing that symbol for describing this particular game.  "Pascal's Wager" (the game) is largely about Pascal's conceit in disregarding the possible existence of non-Christian gods.  One of the game's critics at IFDB has gone so far as to describe this game as anti-religious propaganda.  I was actually a little flattered by that criticism- to think this game will ever reach a wide enough audience to be effective as any form of propaganda.

I accept the "Roman Cross icon" at the top of this page as an indication of the game's religious content, but must also note the irony in choosing that symbol for describing this particular game. "Pascal's Wager" (the game) is largely about Pascal's conceit in disregarding the possible existence of non-Christian gods.

Thanks to all who played!
