Religion is the worship of higher powers from a sense of need. ~ English religion scholar Allan Menzies
Necessity is the mother of invention. The mother of religion is invention sprung from craving for order and control, the terror of death, and one’s own insignificance.
Tell people there’s an invisible man in the sky who created the universe, and the vast majority will believe you. Tell them the paint is wet, and they have to touch it to be sure. ~ George Carlin
