While Pascal was an agnostic of the intellect, he was a believer of the heart. Pascal recognized that his condition was hopeless and that only a divinity could heal his mortal sickness and make him whole. Because science afforded no answers to his questions, he trusted in the God of Abraham to provide what no ordinary mortal can. Pascal was a realist of faith. He drew a sharp line between the sacred and the profane, respecting the gulf that separates this world from the next. Therefore, he did not presume to achieve his own salvation in this world, or anyone else’s. Not so the redeemers. They cannot live with themselves or the fault in creation, and therefore are at war with both. Because they are miserable themselves they cannot abide the happiness of others. To escape their suffering they seek Judgment on all, the rectification that will take them home. If they do not believe in a God, they summon others to act as gods. If they believe in God, they do not trust His justice but arrange their own. In either case, the consequence of their passion is the same catastrophe. This is because the devil they hate is in themselves and their sword of vengeance is wielded by inhabitants of the very hell they wish to escape.

There is no redemption in this life. Generation after generation, we transmit our faults and pass on our sins. From parents to children, we create the world in our own image. And no power can stop us. Every life is an injustice. And no one can fix it. We are born and we die. If there is no God to rescue us, we are nothing.

The End of Time
