W. K. Clifford and “The Ethics of Belief” Madigan, T.J.

Most critiques of religious beliefs focus on the groundless, unprovable nature of religious beliefs, Clifford said “It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.”  Clifford raises the argument to the moral plane and his thesis is that it is morally wrong and a danger to society.
