Such a bizarre statement.First, there is literally no reason to think that valuing the acquisition of knowledge for its own sake will give us a better future than valuing it only for economic reasons.  That's just an entirely invented concept with no basis in fact or reason or evidence.Second, of course we should take responsibility for our own survival.  That belief is not, in any way, contrary to religious belief.Third, similarly, using the light of reason to banish the darkness of superstition is not in any way contrary to religious belief.Hey, I know!  Let's start with banishing the darkness of the superstitious belief that valuing the acquisition of knowledge for its own sake will lead to better outcomes than valuing it for economic reasons!
