“Truth is so obscure in these times and falsehood so established that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.”
Blaise Pascal (1623-62) was a brilliant French mathematician, physicist, inventor, philosopher, and theologian. His observation is akin to Jesus’ words: “The gate leading to life is narrow, and the road going there is a tight squeeze. Not many people find their way through.” (Mt. 7:14 KNT)
Never were Pascal’s words truer than in our age of social media disinformation.
