"Faith in the sense that religionists use the term, it turns out, is
equivalent to the loss of confidence of the individuals of the human
species to achieve their goals on their own. This seems to be borne
out by the adherence to religion among the poor, the spread of religion
in times of depression and conflict, and the greater success of all
religions to proselytize among deprived populations wherever they may be.
It may also explain the lack of initiative clearly evident among the
fanatically religious who see little point in struggling for a better
world when they are only nonentities in a vast system of omnipotent
forces and obscure agencies beyond their abilities to understand or
control. Men who are liberated from all such folderol are able to work
with serenity and unshakable confidence in their own abilities to achieve."
[Chester Dolan, "Holy Daze: Coming to Grips with "Religion," the Holy
Daze of Humanity", "Faith" section, pp.130-135, MOPAH Publications]
