    Pascal's work on probability theory is widely known due to his correspodence with Fermat. (Renyi) It was in this year that he published Traite du triangle arithmetique. After another religious conversion in , in which Pascal fully commit himself to God, his writings were primarily of a philosophical nature.   In "Religion Explained" French Anthropologist Pascal Boyer tackles this elusive subject in a interesting, well written way.

The following is a brief sketch of his life, with particular emphasis given to his conversion and subsequent testimonials in his Pensées. Pascal is an imperative and procedural programming language, designed by Niklaus Wirth as a small, efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data is named in honour of the French mathematician, philosopher and physicist Blaise Pascal.

Kernighan, April 2, The article is often used in language comparison discussions even today, typically by critics of Pascal-family.

While Pascal seems very basic and very minimalistic, when you uncover the true language, you find that it is much easier to create a program in Pascal than in C, Java and other popular languages. The rest of this article talks about the Object Pascal language, so don’t expect to see anything more fancy than the command-line stuff.

Pascal is a good teaching language. It forces people to think about what they're coding, as opposed to having them bash keys until something interesting happens. However, beyond teaching, Pascal is not helpful in and of itself.

Pascal is, however, a gateway language to harder syntaxes such as Ada. Book number one is mostly written by Ms. Pascal. From then on she wrote the stories for every book ever published in the series.

In large part due to Peter Kreeft’s book Christianity for Modern Pagans, there is a growing recognition that Blaise Pascal fits that mold in the realm of Christian apologetics.

A pioneer in mathematics and physics before the age of 30, Pascal’s brilliance was appreciated. An Introduction to Pascal Programming Pascal is a high level language. It was invented by Niklaus Wirth, a computer scientist at the Institute of Informatics in Zurich.

Very often in works about the relationship between science and faith there are quotations from Blaise Pascal's "Pensees" (Thoughts).This profound book offers an interesting but not simple view about this theme, so along the centuries are born several controversial misunderstandings: was Pascal a.

Pascal Boyer, an anthropologist, studies how human biases and cognitive faculties have resulted in or encouraged cultural phenomena.
