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.
