Apologetics 315: Sunday Quote: Pascal on Christianity

I really appreciate Brian Auten posting this quote from Pascal. It amazes me when atheists try to demeans Christians as stupid and backward. They try to make it seem like anyone who believes the Bible is dumb and faith retards science. They never answer how is it that a man like Pascal whom had done so much to advance science was also Christian? Do they consider themselves so much smarter and intelligent? I hope not and that they have other reasons than just because they hate God (but I think that's it).

"Men despise religion; they hate it and fear it is true. To remedy this, we must begin by showing that religion is not contrary to reason; that it is venerable, to inspire respect for it; then we must make it lovable, to make good men hope it is true; finally, we must prove it is true. Venerable, because it has perfect knowledge of man; lovable because it promises the true good."
- Blaise Pascal in Pensées (187)
