|Random quote: "It is religion that preserved knowledge that would have otherwise been lost. Some of the greatest scientific minds in history, men responsible for giant leaps forward were men of faith. To say that religion prevents progress isn't just ignorant...forgive me, but it is quite stupid." � Father Francis Aguirrie|
