Edmund Burke on the Religious Animal
"Man is by his constitution a religious animal; atheism is against not only our reason, but our instincts."
By: Edmund Burke
I found this quote by Edmund Burke on religion and the human person very interesting. I agree with it. I think to reject religion is to reject a part of self. I think that is why a majority of atheists have a lot of trouble with the concept of morality and the belief of moral absolutism. I think religion and God is embedded not only within each of our souls but that it is also in our DNA to be a religious people.
