The Discovery of America - Salvador Dali

                                  D202~Discovery-of-America

The discovery of the New World, symbolised by the youthful Christopher Columbus, unfortunately accompanied -- not to say dominated, as here above in Dali's painting and at both recent political conventions -- by the Old Time Religion of the Old World, a bacillus which still infects and undercuts America today

There is of course an alternative view; that "Religious teachers predominantly in America, compared to Europe, are good healthy materialists. They ... go with common sense."  Guess who had this view, 47 years ago at least.
