Hmmm. Familiar and simplistic tactics.... Where have I heard that before?

Are these things valued by religions, or they just simplistic tactics to
hold the wolves at bay?

Of course, a simple jest was all my point, but what the hell- yes, that
is what I meant....

"Atheism leaves a man to sense, to philosophy, to natural piety, to laws,
to reputation; all of which may be guides to an outward moral virtue,
even if religion vanished; but religious superstition dismounts all these
and erects an absolute monarchy in the minds of men."
