If cathedrals had been universities

If dungeons of the Inquisition had been laboratories

If Christians had believed in character instead of creed

If they had taken from the bible only that which is GOOD and thrown away the wicked and absurd

If temple domes had been observatories

If priests had been philosophers

If missionaries had taught useful arts instead of bible lore

If astrology had been astronomy

If the black arts had been chemistry

If superstition had been science

If religion had been humanity

The world then would be a heaven filled with love and liberty and joy

Robert Ingersoll, 1833-99
