Respond to the question: Game Theory and God?

04/19/2005 09:59 AM by name withheld; Game Theory and God
If God had devised a means to exploit Man for his own benefit, would it make sense, using the principles of game theory, for him to play by one set of rules while telling Man to play by another? Let us assume for a moment that God is not good, that he is in fact a consortium of individuals who exploit Man for wealth, power and control of this world. God tells Man not to sin while at the same time He does the opposite. what principles of Game Theory would pertain to someone playing by one set of rules while convincing someone else to play by the opposite set, thus increasing their chances of winning? Your response is crucial. [Manage messages]
