Science investigates; religion interprets.  Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control.  Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values.  The two are not rivals.

Science doesn’t purvey absolute truth.  Science is a mechanism.  It’s a way of trying to improve your knowledge of nature.  It’s a system for testing your thoughts against the universe and seeing whether they match.  And this works, not just for the ordinary aspects of science, but for all of life.  I should think people would want to know that what they know is truly what the universe is like, or at least as close as they can get to it.

I believe that only scientists can understand the universe.  It is not so much that I have confidence in scientists being right, but that I have so much in nonscientists being wrong.

The beauty of religious mania is that it has the power to explain everything.  Once God   —  or Satan is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance…  logic can be happily tossed out the window.
