Document Summary

Blaise pascal (1623-1662) was a french scientist and philosopher. He argues that if we do a cost-benefit analysis of the matter, it turns out that it is eminently reasonable to get ourselves to believe that god exists. Regardless of whether we have good evidence for that belief. If there is a god, he is infinitely incomprehensible. We are the incapable of knowing either what he is or if he is. It is foolish to believe there is no god. If there was prove, christianity wouldn"t be a religion. There is an infinitely happy life to gain if you live the right life according to god.
