“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

This is true along many lines. With many religious people I find it hard to see the difference between their beliefs, and delusions. That is not to say that I have not seen some intelligent religious people, but with many of them, they do seem to be beyond the realms of reality.

Nice quote.
