Wise words from Baron d'Holbach

From the skeptics guide to the universe I present this epic skeptical quote of the week all the way from the eighteenth century.
“If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favors them in order to profit from the blindness of men.” ~Baron d’Holbach
