Loren, WOW what a post. Thanks.

2000 years ago, intelligent and educated people believed an angry god caused lightning. Pascal lived in an intellectual environment only slightly more advanced. No wonder he had some beliefs that were backward by today's standards.

Today we find so many otherwise smart and educated people who believe in irrational things, and insist we teach these to our children. But this is a problem of more willful ignorance than that of Pascal.
