The Golden Bough

The history of religion is a long attempt to reconcile old custom with new reason, to find a sound theory for an absurd practice. -- Sir James George Frazer (1 January 1854 – 7 May 1941)


Kenneth Tucker


Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
