Blaise Pascal: French Genuis Who Tried to Balance Reason and Faith

 

Today is the birthday of Blaise Pascal
In math and philosophy few could be sager.
Of  games  he was probably  smart as an owl.
And even on God he was willing to wager.*

 

*:Let us weigh the gain and the loss in wagering that God is. Let us estimate these two chances. If  you gain, you gain all. If you lose, you lose nothing. Wager then without hesitation that He is."  Pensees, #233
