The following are related quotes:

“It is impossible for anyone to dispel his fear over the most important matters, if he does not know what is the nature of the universe, but instead suspects something that happens in myth. Therefore, it is impossible to obtain unmitigated pleasure without natural science.”
Epicurus (c.280BC), opening quote to Victor Stenger’s God and the Atom [1]

Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies. To teach superstitions as truth is a most terrible thing. The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he or she be in after years relieved of them. The reason for this is that a superstition is so intangible a thing that you cannot get at it to refute it.”
Hypatia (c.400)
