Pascal also wrote in defense of the scientific method Pascal was a mathematician of the first order. He helped create two major new areas of research. He wrote a significant treatise on the subject of projective geometry at the age of sixteen, and later corresponded with Pierre de Fermat on probability theory , strongly influencing the development of modern economics and social science Following a mystical experience in late 1654, he abandoned his scientific work and devoted himself to philosophy and

His father, struck by this display of ability, gave him a copy of Euclid's Elements, a book which Pascal read with avidity and soon mastered. Before Pascal turned 13 he had proven the 32-nd proposition of Euclid and discovered an error in Rene Descartes geometry. At 16, Pascal began preparing to write a study of the entire field of mathematics, but his father required his time to hand total long columns of numbers. Pascal began designing a calculating machine, which he finally perfected when he was thirty, the pascaline , a beautiful handcrafted box about fourteen by five by three inches. The first accurate mechanical calculator was born. The Pacaline was not a commercial success in Pascal's lifetime; it could do the work of six accountants and people feared it would create unemployment.

Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) Mathematician, physicist, and theologian, inventor of the first digital calculator, who is often thought of as the ideal of classic French prose. Pascal lived in the time when Copernicus' discovery - that the earth moves round the sun - had made fallen human beings insignificant factors in the new order of the world. Facing the immensity of the universe, Pascal felt horror - "The eternal silence of these infinite spaces terrifies me." For him the world seemed empty of ultimate meaning or significance without Christianity, which he defended against the assaults of freethinkers. While Montaigne lived at ease with skepticism, Pascal was tormented by religious doubt, and took the question Why are we here? "Pascal's disillusioned analysis of human bondage is sometimes interpreted to mean that Pascal was really and finally an unbeliever, who, in his despair, was incapable of enduring reality and enjoying the heroic satisfaction of the free man's worship of nothing. His despair, his disillusion, are, however, no illustration of personal weakness; they are perfectly objective, because they are essential moments in the progress of the intellectual soul; and for the type of Pascal they are the analogue of the drought, the dark night, which is an essential stage in the progress of the Christian mystic."

BLAISE PASCAL (1623-1662)
"Whoso takes this survey of himself will be terrified at the thought that is upheld in the material being, given him by nature, between these two abysses of the infinite and nothing, he will tremble at the sight of these marvels...
For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in regard to the infinite, a whole in regard to nothing, a mean between nothing and the whole; infinitely moved from understanding either extreme. The end of things and their beginnings are invincibly hidden from him in impenetrable secrecy, he is equally incapable of seeing the nothing whence he was taken, and the infinite in which he is engulfed."
Biography Pascal was born in Clermont-Ferrand, France, in 1623. His mother died when he was three-years-old, and he was educated by his father, Etienne, who had associations with the likes of Descartes, Mersenne, and Fermat. He developed what became known as Pascal's Theorem (a work on the projective geomertry of the cone) at the young age of sixteen. His other early accomplishments in mathematics included the development of probability theory and a method of infintesimal analysis. Pascal also made major contributions to physics, including a treatise on hydrostatics and experiments with his barometer to determine the cause of the mercury's suspension. With The Provincial Letters , Pascal earned fame as a rhetoritician/polemic stylist, which would thereafter greatly influenced French prose. In these letters, Pascal defended the Jansenists against attacks by the Jesuits and the Pope, although Pascal himself was not a Jansenist. Pascal's greatest mark upon philosophy comes from his

Blaise Pascal
From LoveToKnow 1911
BLAISE PASCAL (1623-1662), French religious philosopher and mathematician, was born at Clermont Ferrand on the 19th of June 1623. His father was Etienne Pascal, president of the Court of Aids at Clermont; his mother's name was Antoinette Begon. The Pascal family were Auvergnats by extraction as well as residence, had for many generations held posts in the civil service , and were ennobled by Louis XI . in 1478, but did not assume the de. The earliest anecdote of Pascal is one of his being bewitched and freed from the spell. by the witch with strange ceremonies. His mother died when he was about four years old, and left him with two sistersGilberte, who afterwards married M. Perier, and Jacqueline. Both sisters are of importance in their brother's history, and both are said to have been beautiful and accomplished. When Pascal was about seven years old his father gave up his official post at Clermont, and betook himself to Paris . It does not appear that Blaise, who went to no school, but was taught by his father, was at all forced, but rather the contrary. Nevertheless he has a distinguished place in the story of precocious children, and in the much more limited chapter of children whose precocity has been followed by great performance at maturity, though he never became what is called a learned man, perhaps did not know Greek, and was pretty certainly indebted for most of his miscellaneous reading to Montaigne.

Blaise Pascal
Should we therefore wait until we are the oldest person on earth or the most educated person on earth to make up our mind whether we should be a creationist or an evolutionist? The obvious answer is no. God has created the world and our minds so that we use thought systems for interpreting the world around us. Each person, regardless of how old or how educated, stands equal before God. Each person is responsible for the world view he holds. Each person is responsible for interpreting the data. No one else has a right to do that for him. Each person adopts a world view based on faith. If he accepts creation, he does so by faith. If he rejects creation, he does so by faith. It is not in this manner that he chose to appear in the gentleness of his coming; because since so many men had become unworthy of his clemency, he wished them to suffer the privation of the good that they did not want. It would not have been right therefore for him to appear in a way that was plainly divine and absolutely bound to convince all mankind; but it was not right either that he should come in a manner so hidden that he could not be recognized by those who sought him sincerely. He chose to make himself perfectly knowable to them; and thus, wishing to appear openly to those who seek him with all their heart, he tempered the knowledge of himself, with the result that he has given signs of himself which are visible to those who seek him, and not to those who do not seek him (Pensees, #309).

Blaise Pascal
Blaise Pascal was born in Clement, France in 1623. From an early age, he was identified as a prodigy. When he was eleven, he wrote an essay on the sounds of vibrating bodies. His father did not take well to this and forbid him from studying mathematics. At 12, he came up with his own proof that the sum of the angles of a triangle add up to sum of two right angles. His was father was impressed with this and decided that it was ok if Pascal read Euclid's Elements. At the age of 16, Pascal wrote an essay on conic sections which included a result known today as Pascal's Theorem . At age 18, he created a mechanical calculator capable of addition and subtraction (he was the second person to do this; Wilhelm Schickard had built the first one in 1624).

Blaise Pascal
born June 19, 1623, Clermont-Ferrand, France
died Aug. 19, 1662, Paris
French mathematician, physicist, and religious philosopher. The son of a mathematician, he was a child prodigy, earning the envy of with an essay he wrote on conic sections in 1640. In the 1640s and '50s he made contributions to physics (formulating Pascal's law ) and mathematics (working on the arithmetic triangle, inventing a calculating machine, and contributing to the advance of differential calculus). For work done in his early years, he is regarded as the founder of the modern theory of probability. At the same time, he became increasingly involved with Jansenism Les Provinciales were a series of letters defending Jansenism and attacking the Jesuit s. His great work of Christian apologetics, was never finished, but he put together most of his notes and fragments between 1657 and 1658; these were published posthumously as (1670). He returned to scientific work, contributing to the

His father, Etienne, was a royal tax officer and a member of the petit noblesse.

    was the third of Etienne Pascal's children and his only son. Blaise's mother died when he was only three years old. In 1632 the Pascal family, Etienne and his four children, left Clermont and settled in Paris. Blaise Pascal's father had unorthodox educational views and decided to teach his son himself. Etienne Pascal decided that Blaise was not to study mathematics before the age of 15 and all mathematics texts were removed from their house. Blaise however, his curiosity raised by this, started to work on geometry himself at the age of 12. He discovered that the sum of the angles of a triangle are two right angles and, when his father found out, he relented and allowed Blaise a copy of Euclid. At the age of 14 Blaise Pascal started to accompany his father to Mersenne 's meetings. Mersenne belonged to the religious order of the Minims, and his cell in Paris was a frequent meeting place for Gassendi, Roberval, Carcavi, Auzout, Mydorge, Mylon, Desargues and others. Soon, certainly by the time he was 15, Blaise came to admire the work of Desargues. At the age of sixteen, Pascal presented a single piece of paper to one of Mersenne 's meetings in June 1639. It contained a number of projective geometry theorems, including Pascal's mystic hexagon.

    Blaise Pascal was the third Source: Blaise Pascal was a French mathematician, physicist, theologian, and man of letters. He was born at Clermont-Ferrand on 19 June, 1623, and his mother died only three years later, leaving his father ‰tienne, an excellent mathematician himself, to raise and educate the family. They moved to Paris in 1631, and it became clear that Pascal was a mathematical prodigy, publishing at 16 an essay on conic sections that Ren© Descartes could not believe was the work of one so young. In 1646, Pascal converted to an austere and rigorous form of Roman Catholicism called Jansenism, accepting a doctrine that espoused absolute predestination, denied free will, and stated that only the grace of God rather than good works could bring salvation. 1651 saw the death of Pascal's father, and his sister, Jacqueline, consequently entered the Jansenist community at Port Royal. Pascal's subsequent correspondence with Pierre de Fermat laid the foundations for the mathematical theory of probability. Source:
