Religion was one of our great enemies and our downfall, not only looking at the present time but throughout history. The rising tide of violence seemed to have, more often than not, a religious fervor involved in it. On the other hand I think of science. I don’t think science has been at all the great saving grace as a human species as we have made it to be. If you look at it at the basis of nearly every real catastrophe certainly facing us today it’s scientific.
