Religion as 'emulation of the adult by the child'

I simply wish to promote some of what I consider the best quotes about religion by the sci-fi writer Frank Herbert. In my opinion he is an very insightful and serious critic of religion, having explored it himself very thoroughly

Religion is the emulation of the adult by the child. Religion is the encystment of past beliefs: mythology, which is guesswork, the assumptions of trust in the universe, those pronouncements which men…

A Tribute to One Of My Heroes: Frank Zappa, His Parental Advice "Keep Your Kids Away From Religion".

It was a very sad time for me when I heard the news about the death of Frank Zappa in 1993 from cancer. 

His sarcastic humor and incredible musical ability with a completely non-commercial outlook on the entire music industry gave me some of my outlook on life and skepticism.

Crazy for God

I often judge a book by how much it makes me think and reflect.
