Yet another Great Quote March 20, 2009Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.
“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by the rulers as useful”
– Roman philosopher Seneca – Science and Reason over Myth and Superstition.
I assume this is Seneca the Younger, born 6BCE and died 65CE. He pretty much sums up my view of religion. And would someone please explain to me why Obama has not yet dismantled the Office of Faith Based Initiatives? That’s a Bush era creation and has no place in the secular White House.
