Has Religion Made Useful Contributions to Civilization? by Bertrand Russell My own view on religion is that of Lucretius. I regard it as a disease born of fear and as a source of untold misery to the human race.

Jaki, Stanley L. Science: From the Womb of Religion "Long before the 1960s progress became increasingly identified with an enterprise, science, looked upon in many quarters as incompatible with religion...If intellectual honesty, usually taken for a fruit of scientific method, is to be had only through Christian love, science and religion should not seem far removed from one another. In fact science is as closely related to religion, and especially to Christian religion, as a child is to the womb out of which it came forth and with full vitality." <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
