in response to reader comment: Ancient wisdom vs. Modern rationalism

Submitted by Dennis Middlebrooks (United States), Aug 10, 2018 at 20:11

Ancient Wisdom gave us the Geocentric Universe, Slavery, Patriarchy. Demon Possession, Witch Killings, Human Sacrifice, and many other "wonders." Modern rationalism gave us the polio vaccines, air conditioning, the Expanding Universe, the Enlightenment, antibiotics, penicillin, computers, space probes, DVD's, etc. Keep your Bronze Age holy book of fables and falsehoods, and let the smart people take care of earthly affairs, Now, you are dismissed.
