"Faith and knowledge are related as the two scales of balance; when one goes up, the other goes down... The power of religious dogma, when inculcated early, is such as to stifle conscience, compassion, and finally every feeling of humanity... For, as you know, religions are like glow worms; they shine only when it's dark. A certain amount of ignorance is the condition of all religions, the element in which alone they can exist."
Arthur Schopenhauer
Parerga and Paralipomena
