“Religion comes from the period of human prehistory where nobody- not even the might Democritus who concluded that all matter was made from atoms- had the smallest idea of what was going on. It comes from the bawling and fearful infancy of our species, and is a babyish attempt to meet our inescapable demand for knowledge. Today the least educated of my children knows much more about the natural order than any of the founders of religion” - Christopher Hitchens
