Weekly Quote: Bertrand Russell on Science & Religion

By January 9, 2005

Follow me on:

When two men of science disagree, they do not invoke the secular arm; they wait for further evidence to decide the issue, because, as men of science, they know that neither is infallible. But when two theologians differ, since there is no criteria to which either can appeal, there is nothing for it but mutual hatred and an open or covert appeal to force.
- Bertrand Russell Can Religion Cure our Troubles, 1954.
