"The solution...would seem to lie in dismantling the theistic edifice, which
will no longer bear the weight of the universe as enlarged by recent science,
and attempting to find new outlets for the religious spirit. God, in any but
a purely philosophical, and one is almost tempted to say Pickwickian sense,
turns out to be a product of the human mind. As an independent or unitary
being active in the affairs of the universe, he does not exist."
[Julian Huxley, "Science, Religion and Human
Nature," Conway Memorial Lecture, 1930]
