Quote of the Week: Sep 25 thru Oct 1

If we go back to the beginning we shall find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that fancy, enthusiasm, or deceit adorned or disfigured them; that weakness worships them; that credulity preserves them, and that custom, respect and tyranny support them in order to make the blindness of man serve its own interests.

If the ignorance of nature gave birth to gods, the knowledge of nature is calculated to destroy them.

– Baron D’Holbach
