Wiley Miller reminds us that scientific progress often requires going around religious obstacles:
I guess it’s better than the same people trying to erase the blackboard…
Of course, some people will inevitably say there are great scientists of faith, too, but those people never let their religion get in the way of their research. And if the two ever came into conflict, observation and reason always trumped dogma and belief.
