Pierre Bayle

Pierre Bayle

French philosopher, historian and critic of religious dogmas
Do you doubt that the least effects of nature were not used as marks of the wrath of heaven? It was to the interest of pontiffs, priests, and augurs, as much as it is to the interest of lawyers and doctors that there should be lawsuits and sickness. No wonder they took care that the people should not grow slack in their religion. /doubt/ Pierre Bayle quotes
