“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.”  Galileo Galilei

This from a man condemned by the Catholic Church for “vehement suspicion of heresy” and sentenced to live the rest of his life under house arrest because of his belief that the sun, not the earth, was the center of the known universe.  Interesting how he was able to make the distinction between “religion” and “God,” — two things easily confused.
