is to keep any one religion out of government.

Is that clear thinking?

I do agree, however, that we have to be watchful of dogmatism in science, especially in educational institutions. I know of many such instances. Afterall, scientists are human and capable of distortion if it yields wealth or power or recognition. But on the whole scientists and educators are pretty honest a self-policing. Just think of where science would be if they had the ethics of politicians and/or lawyers. It's best to keep both science and religion away from politics in order for each to flourish.

Regards,

Richard
