    Pascal has caused atheists to doubt their atheismoften than Nietzsche has theists their theism why Because those that let their hearts guide their thoughts are never in doubt, but those who unwisely look to results to guide them, as macho ubermensches perforce exclusively must, are always finding their conviction to be as slippery as the passing moment no one result ever convinces the result minded Recognizing this, Pascal places a weighty emphasis on the heart and the nature of its Pascal has caused atheists to doubt their atheismoften than Nietzsche has theists their theism why Because those that let their hearts guide their thoughts are never in doubt, but those who unwisely look to results to guide them, as macho ubermensches perforce exclusively must, are always finding their conviction to be as slippery as the passing moment no one result ever convinces the result minded Recognizing this, Pascal places a weighty emphas...

    Men are so necessarily mad that it would be another twist of madness not to be mad.And what completes our inability to understand things is that they are not so simple in themselves, and we are made up of two different kinds of opposing natures, body and soulFor this reason almost all philosophers confuse the id...

    Pascal s classic thoughts on numerous topics related to Christianity This book is at times difficult to read, since he died before he finished it thus leaving many sections only outlined in note form But slogging through those portions is worthwhile when you get to the good, thought provoking parts In some ways Pascal reminds me of Kierkegaard since both were reasonable men who realized that it takesthan just reason alone to come to faith in Christ Pascal s apologetic reflects this He Pascal s classic thoughts on numerous topics related to Christianity This book is at times difficult to read, since he died before he finished it thus leaving many sections only outlined in note form But slogging through those portions is worthwhile when you get to the good, thought provoking parts In some ways Pascal reminds me of Kierkegaard since both were reasonable men who realized that it takesthan just reason alone to come ...
