Robert Heinlein (1907 - 1988), The Notebooks of Lazurus Long
History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help.

Excerpt from the notebooks of Lazarus Long, from Robert Heinlein's "Time Enough for Love"
Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.
