Pascal's wager is irrelevant. It doesn't tell you what god you should believe in. And believing in wrong god is usually worse than believing in no god.
I think Pascal came with the idea because being atheist was simply too risky .. not because Christian God would be angry .. but because Christians would be angry. I believe it was sociological advice, not philosophical.
