    Hi GaryG,

    See my comments to CSL with respect to religion sponsoring rational thought. Its an uncomfortable marriage at best.

    Interesting note on Newton - "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." Rationalism is a "reaction" contra to religion. As the gods of GH are "real" religion is all the more faith based as there is demonstrably something to believe in - faith or lack of faith has real consequences. Yet, the objects of such faith are comprehensible as mortals writ large, which runs contra to a "true faith." Such realization opens the door to a rationalist inquiry quite at odds with "true faith."

    You may have your campaign as you like it. I find a "happy land," where religion has no issue with rational thought that questions religious faith, to be not to my taste.
