Heinlein Quote of the Month (April 2006)

This one seems relevant, given last week's news on the study examining the efficacy of intercessory prayer:

The most preposterous notion that H. Sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history.

Lazarus Long in Time Enough For Love.
