Some 20 years ago, my sermons in the Harvard chapel were ended because of one which was "religiously incorrect." The gist of that talk to students was the following: "You come to college to study the sciences to learn how to manipulate people. You come here to learn how to die."
Ever since that time, I have become more convinced such is the basic purpose of all religions. I may be wrong, but has the climate now changed? --Richard N. Frye, Aga Khan Professor of Iranian, Emeritus
