"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use." Galileo Galilei

I don't believe that this is a quote that can readily be overlooked. Indeed, if there is a god, and he created us in his image, then wouldn't he use his intellect, reason, and continuing knowledge to question himself as the great french philosopher Descartes did when he wrote,"I think, therefore I am."? Why shall we ever believe in something so profound as to never question it, and to blindly follow it with such fervor?
