Or as the one of the world's first Yoans put it, viewing the world from the common order, i.e., without the uncommon order of empirical investigation or science:

As long as the human Mind perceives things from the common order of nature, it does not have an adequate, but only a confused and mutilated knowledge of itself, of its own Body, and of external bodies. (from Baruch Spinoza's Ethics, Part II, Corollary to Proposition 29)

By the age of 12, Francis Crick stopped going to church, later saying:

"Christianity may be OK between consenting adults in private but should not be taught to young children."


"[I]f some of the Bible is manifestly wrong, why should any of the rest of it be accepted automatically? ... And what would be more important than to find our true place in the universe by removing one by one these unfortunate vestiges of earlier beliefs?"

In 1960, Crick accepted an honorary fellowship at Churchill College, Cambridge, one factor being that the new college did not have a chapel. Some time later a large donation was made to establish a chapel and the College Council decided to accept it. Crick resigned his fellowship in protest. A true Yoan.

BTW, Francis Crick was on LSD when he discovered the secret of life!
