Pascal’s Pensées or, thoughts on religion
Man’s internal conflict between Reason and the previous season. Did he only have reason, without any passion… Did he only have passion, without any reason.
but having both, he must always be at war, because only by fighting the other can he be at peace with the one: thus he is always divided against himself.
Seeing the blindness and misery of man, seeing the whole universe mute, and without light, man was left to fend for himself, and as if he were wandering in this corner of the universe,
Not knowing who put him here, what he is here for, or knowing anything of what will happen to him when he dies, I begin to fear, like a man who has been taken to a scary desert island in his sleep, and who wakes up without knowing where he is and having no means of leaving the island.
And thus it amazes me that even in such a pitiable condition people do not suffer from despair. I see about myself other persons of similar nature:
I ask them if they know better than I do; They say “no” to me, and this miserable wanderer, after looking around him and seeing some pleasant things,
Have dedicated ourselves to them and have joined them. For myself, I have not been able to connect with him and considering how much of what I see is show and how little, I have tried to find out whether this god should not have left his mark.
I see many religions as contradictory, and therefore all false except one. Each will be believed on his own right and the disbelievers will be threatened.
So for that reason, I distrust them: each may speak so, each may call himself a prophet.
But I look to Christianity, which has prophecies, and these are such that not every religion can refute them.
The soul is put into the body, where it finds number, time, dimension. She reasons these things, and calls them “nature,” necessity. Can’t believe anything else.
A unit added to infinity does not increase it, any more than adding a foot to infinity can increase it.
In the presence of the infinite the limited is destroyed and it is as if it did not exist.
As our mind is before God, so is our righteousness before divine righteousness.
There is a greater disparity between our righteousness and God’s righteousness than unity and infinity, God’s justice must be as wide as his mercy,
But towards the rebels, his justice is not so extensive and should offend him less than his mercy towards the chosen ones.
We know that there is infinity, and we are ignorant of its nature: for example, we know that it is not true that the numbers can be terminated, therefore,
It is true that there is an infinity of numbers, but we do not know what that infinity is; It is wrong to say that it is even,
It is wrong to say that it is unequal, because adding units does not change its nature; Veterinarian it is a number, and every number is either odd or even (it is true that this is understood of all finite numbers).
Thus we can really know that there is a God, without knowing what he is.
