    If cathedrals had been universities
    If dungeons of the Inquisition had been laboratories
    If Christians had believed in character instead of creed
    If they had taken from the bible only that which is GOOD and thrown away the wicked and absurd
    If temple domes had been observatories
    If priests had been philosophers
    If missionaries had taught useful arts instead of bible lore
    If astrology had been astronomy
    If the black arts had been chemistry
    If superstition had been science
    If religion had been humanity
    The world then would be a heaven filled with love and liberty and joy
    Robert Ingersoll, 1833-99

    'And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh'.

    Ecclesiastes 12:12

    Thou shalt not independently read.

    Just fear God and do what they told ya.
