'I had rather believe all the fables of the Legend and the Talmud and the Alcoran, than that this universal frame [the Universe] is without a mind; and, therefore, God never wrought miracle to convince Atheism, because His ordinary works convince it. It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to Atheism; but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s minds about to religion.'

Francis Bacon (1561-1626) ‘Of Atheism’, Essays.
