Peter Medawar Quotes: It Goes With The Passionate Intensity

It Goes With The Passionate Intensity And Deep Conviction Of The Truth Of A Religious Belief, And Of Course Of The Importance Of The Superstitious Observances That Go With It, That We Should Want Others To Share It - And The Only Certain Way To Cause A Religious Belief To Be Held By Everyone Is To Liquidate Nonbelievers. The Price In Blood And Tears That Mankind Generally Has Had To Pay For The Comfort And Spiritual Refreshment That Religion Has Brought To A Few Has Been Too Great To Justify Our Entrusting Moral Accountancy To Religious Belief.
