4On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5For John baptized with[a] water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit."
6So when they met together, they asked him, "Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?"
7He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. 8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost
1When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.
But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.

The reason Jesus can not pardon the sin of denying the Holy Spirit is because a person would have to actively deny it. If a person were to stop denying the Holy Spirit, they would then begin to accept it, and can then be saved.
The reason it is unpardonable is that due to free will, even Jesus himself can't force you to do somthing.
I hope that all makes sense, just my two cents.
...While the Prophet was still but a toddling babe(Initiatically speaking), the Angel Gabriel(Yesod) with seventy wings came to him, and cutting open the child, withdrew the heart(of the Atom Nous of Christ). This Gabriel(Yesod/Generation) cleansed(through White Tantra) of the black drop of original sin(which is ejaculation/fornication) which is in every human heart because of the perfidy of Adam(related to Tiphereth) and then returned the organ to its proper place(invigorated by the Christic Fire of Kundalini) in the Prophet's body...

As I mentioned earlier, if you don't believe in the Holy Spirit, you cannot commit the unpardonable sin.

Sure enough though, if you try to defy it, you will eventually have to answer for it. Non-belief doesn't necessarily make something non-existent.

If God does not exist, is it not plausible or not possible?
