"Scientific education and religious education are incompatible. The clergy
have ceased to interfere with education at the advanced state, with which
I am directly concerned, but they have still got control of that of
children. This means that the children have to learn about Adam and Noah
instead of about Evolution; about David who killed Goliath, instead of Koch
who killed cholera; about Christ's ascent into heaven instead of
Montgolfier's and Wright's. Worse than that, they are taught that it is
a virtue to accept statements without adequate evidence, which leaves them
a prey to quacks of every kind in later life, and makes it very difficult
for them to accept the methods of thought which are successful in science."
[J. B. S. Haldane]
