Blaise Pascal
In the words of seventeenth-century mathematician, philosopher, physicist and Catholic, Blaise Pascal, “Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction.” Does religion breed intolerance, violence, and the promotion of medieval ideas? Or should we concede that overall, it has been a source for good, giving followers purpose, while encouraging morality and ethical behavior?
