This isn't so much meant to be an interesting thread topic more than it is intended to be a reminder for theists who don't know one of the essential problems with Pascals wager. I'll proceed by assuming the logic is valid...

Either God exists or he doesn't (so a fifty fifty chance then)

Then

If I'm a Christian we have:

P(Bible God) = 1/2

If I'm a Muslim we have:

P(Quran God) = 1/2

If I'm a complete and total **** we have:

P(Dasa God) = 1/2

Now since each of the above type of person exists then from an objective standpoint it makes sense to sum these probabilities.

But the sum of these probabilities is 3/2 > 1 which completely defies the fundamental definition of probability that the sum over all probabilities of events in a sample space is equal to 1

So where did I go wrong? ðŸ˜•
