Religion and Science as metaphors.Religion is a shield that protects us from those with greater knowledge and from the beast of ignorance.
"how?" is the pickaxe we use to mine knowledge from our land.
"why?" is the furnace we use to refine knowledge into a sword we call science.
With science we can slay the beast that is ignorance.
Its meat, "answers" will fuel us, Its bones, "What if" will help us gain more knowledge, slay more ignorance.
until there is no more ignorance left, until we no longer need our shield. On that day we will have armour made from knowledge. knowledge that we have reshaped, refined and made stronger.
So don't hide behind your shield, cast it into the furnace. Craft your sword and help slay ignorance.
But never forget the shield, it protected you until you we're ready. It gave you time to find your pickaxe, to find your furnace and aloud you to wield science.
It taught you to reject common sense and make the impossible, possible.
