Chopping down the Tree of Knowledge

“So far as I can remember, there’s not one word in the Gospels in praise of
intelligence.” ¬ Bertrand Russell
"Of course, theists could not be theists if they were particularly interested in
accuracy." ¬ in Bay at Fundies
"Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has: it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but – more frequently than not – struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God." ¬ Martin Luther, quoted here.
