For instance, Marshall McLuhan: father of media theory,
patron sait of Wired magazine, Roman Catholic. I think the
point of a religion founding on careful and critical thinking
is that evaluations should not be made based upon litmus
tests...great thinkers are often a little crazy, difficult to
understand, and wrong about something or other (depending
on one's perspective). Aquinas was a theist, was
Occam, and (despite misgivings) Hume (at least, he concluded
pre-Darwin that there was no reasonable alternative to divine
creation which presupposes the existence of God).
