Blaise Pascal was a gambling man, and a brilliant mathematician, and he thought he could figure out a way to win with the dice more often. Thus, the theory of probibility was hatched.
Pascal also struggled with the question; is there a God? Always calculating his odds, the answer came to be known as “Pascal’s Wager”.
“If God DOES NOT exist, one will lose nothing by believing in him, while if he DOES exist, one will lose everything by not believing.”
