Although this kind of 'playing safe' has something in common with pascals wager, this article is not describing pascals wager, which considers a very specific potential reward/cost.

This is the 'intentional stance' that Dennett describes in Breaking the Spell.

Scrappy article. Why are we told nothing about the study? (except for the conclusions drawn from it).
