Napoleon Bonaparte was a soldier and politician. A practical man. He was an Atheist but sometimes thought religion was useful. He thought religion gave society a moral code and stopped the poor stealing from the rich. He said 'Nulle société ne peut exister sans morale. Il n'y a pas de bonne morale sans religion. Il n'y a donc que la religion qui donne à l'Etat un appui ferme et durable.'

This supports Seneca The Youngers three propositions.

So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence. 

Bertrand Russell

A subject for a great poet would be God's boredom after the seventh day of
