Religion is the Curse of the Thinking Classes (cont)

Take no thought for the morrow! The religious injunction which if followed leads to craven inanition.Dickens surely understood human nature when he created the absurd tragic comical character of Micawber who went through his days 'waiting for something to turn up' going from one financial crisis to the next,consuming more than he produced. Not so much I think therefor I am but I am therefor I think is the answer if one is to stand any chance of having a happy productive life.A man may fail in his thinking if it is inadequate or for whatever reason and thinking is no guarantee of success but the latter was never achieved by blanking out and abnegating the responsibility to think -you may not succeed in your thinking but you will never succeed without thinking.
