We are in a sort of agreement; Pascal’s wager may have been real in the sense that it was a philosophical construct, but that didn’t mean that the wager had any basis in reality.
You stated that the wager is “now” redundant, but it has always been redundant. That people may or may not have accepted it is another matter.
What philosophical construct has any basis in reality- whatever that is? how does one determine reality even today- everyone has their own version dependent on what their problems are in relation to the life they live. But I will wager that proportionately more people believed in the concept of Pascals wager then, than they do today. Surely that's the point- we have moved on religion is not what it was and we have latched on to other things.
