I don’t think so, after all the vast majority of great minds in our history have been pro-religious. Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein two of the greatest scientific ever both held a belief in a god and believe that their work in science was that of unrevealing the secrets of how his mind works. Henry David Thoreau (the writer of resistance to civil government) and Ralph Waldo Emerson the two great Transcendentalists both held firm belief in the Christian God and their work continues to be the corner stone of American writing, philosophy, and environmentalism. Martian Luther the founder of the Protestant church show immeasurable courage when he stood up to the European world and risk his own life to speak out against the corruption and immorality of the church practices in Rome at the time, and through his actions of standing up for what was morally right forever establish the idea of Free speech within the religious world. Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martian Luther King Jr. both influenced by Thoreau, led peaceful protest that brought down decades of oppressive rule (Gandhi), and discriminator laws and racism, and once again both of these men believe deeply in their faith. William Shakespeare the greatest play writes who ever lived and in his writings you can find influences of his family’s Roman Catholic Heritage. And finally the great fantasy writers of the 20th J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and more recently J.K. Rowling all hold a religious convection and it can be found through out their work. So if this is what you call weak minded or “primitive people” then we must be the most primitive race of beings to ever existent.

I my self am a devote Lutheran, and believe that Gods presences can be felt through nature, literature, philosophy, and music. Like Gandalf tells Frodo in the caves of Moria “There are other forces at work in this world besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the ring, just as you were meant have it. And that is encouraging thought.”
