"What are the moral convictions most fondly held
by barbarous and semi-barbarous people?
They are the convictions that authority
is the soundest basis of belief;
that merit attaches to readiness to believe;
that the doubting disposition is a bad one,
and skepticism is a sin."
On The Advisableness of Improving Natural Knowledge,1866
