Pascal and Blamires

From Pascal's Pensees:

"2 Order by dialogues. "What must I do? I see nothing but obscurities on every side.'
'Shall I believe I am nothing? Shall I believe I am God?'"


I am drawing to the end of Harry Blamires book The Christian Mind and have come across a section of remarkable prescience when he applies the Christian considerations to our use of technologies. It is very congenial to some of the concerns of New Urbanism and environmentalism but from a robustly Christian perspective.
