A fact, inconsistent with the creed, is denounced as a lie,
and the man who declares or announces the fact is a blasphemer.
Every professor breathes the air of insincerity. Every one is
mentally dishonest. Every one is a pious fraud. Theology is the
only dishonest science — the only one that is based on belief —
on credulity, — the only one that abhors investigation, that
despises thought and denounces reason.
Robert Green Ingersoll – “Truth” (1897)
