This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
James Watt didn't say that. It was reported that he said it a few years ago when Bill Moyers wrote it, but it was a made-up quote (by someone else, not Moyers). Moyers apologized, and retracted it. In fact, Watt said pretty much the opposite: we need to be more environmentally conscious in order to leave a better world for the next generation. Not that I'm defending Watt in general, but it was used as an anti-Christian polemic at the time.http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/009475.php
I'm relying on a 26-year-old memory, so that may very well be.
