Apollo 4 on column of fire

A man of little faith

I wish that, when I am dead, it will be said of me that he was man of little faith, who treasured the power to disbelieve as much as the power to believe. I wish it said that he disbelieved his religion, until he had none; that he considered religion and modern scientific reasoning utterly incompatible; and that his disbelief extended to "scientific" dogma, particularly the "quantum nonlocality," which he said did not exist.

I wish that these things will be said a long time from now -- a long, long time from now.
