I should clarify:
The book is partly about a new church rising from the ashes of
nuclear holocaust and they worship a "Saint" by the name of Leibowitz
who was really one of the engineers who had a hand in creating the
bomb that caused the devastation. But they don't know this of course.
Oh yeah, and the author's name: Walter M. Miller Jr.

I guess what is relevant to the thread is that we create G(g)od(s).
This does not mean that there is no "supreme power", but I
might venture to suggest that it is awfully naive of we lowly humans
to believe that we know what "god" is.
