Heinlein on Religion

Via Alex Knapp:

"A religion is a source of happiness and I would not deprive anyone of happiness. But it is a comfort appropriate for the weak, not for the strong--and you are strong. The great trouble with religion--any religion--is that the religionist, having accepted certain propositions by faith, cannot thereafter judge these propositions by evidence. One may bask at the warm fire of faith or choose to live in the bleak uncertainty of reason--but one cannot have both."
-- Robert Heinlein

Knapp, by the way, is my favorite heretical blogger. He's pro-war and could I not like him?
