I did not address John Kurt Jackson's lengthy defense of Pascal's wager when it was published, several years ago. Now that I have recently reviewed it, perhaps some brief comments are in order.

What Jackson has to say is illustrative of the thought process of those that think the wager has any credibility. They are somehow in possession of The Truth. The choice is either pick my religion or be damned for eternity. They are flat out incapable of seeing that there are an innumerable number of possible choices. The idea of multiple choice is dismissed out-of-hand by the magic word "Jesus" along with a dismissal of other religions just because they don't "believe."

Jackson does not refute Meditation 58. He reinforces it.
