This is from an article written by Peter Kreeft.
To understand Pascal's Wager you have to understand the background of the argument. Pascal lived in a time of great scepticism. Medieval philosophy was dead, and medieval theology was being ignored or sneered at by the new intellectuals of the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century. Montaigne, the great sceptical essayist, was the most popular writer of the day. The classic arguments for the existence of God were no longer popularly believed. What could the Christian apologist say to the sceptical mind of this age? Suppose such a typical mind lacked both the gift of faith and the confidence in reason to prove God's existence; could there be a third ladder out of the pit of unbelief into the light of belief?

Pascal's Wager claims to be that third ladder. Pascal well knew that it was a low ladder. If you believe in God only as a bet, that is certainly not a deep, mature, or adequate faith. But it is something, it is a start, it is enough to dam the tide of atheism. The Wager appeals not to a high ideal, like faith, hope, love, or proof, but to a low one: the instinct for self-preservation, the desire to be happy and not unhappy. But on that low natural level, it has tremendous force. Thus Pascal prefaces his argument with the words, "Let us now speak according to our natural light".
Danniel, I have not seen the Zeitgeist Movie as of yet, but some time in the near furture I will watch it. However, I did visit the "Zeitgeist" web page and I read their "mission statement" and the one name that came to mind as I was reading it was the name of Karl Marx. I now have a question for you,have you ever bothered to pick up a commentary on the bible or maybe read a book about science not written by an athiest? Even if you are not convinced the information is true, at least it would give you a better understanding about what the enemy thinks.
