The trick is to develop a path that feeds the doubt, that re-invigorates the question, that keeps the mystery alive. That might be a good definition of religion.


I think this author got that bit right. The more "mystery" the more obscure the view of the world. If that's a reason for Rowan Williams, (Archbishop of Cant), to be happy, then ignorance is indeed, bliss. What was that old saying: "A fool can ask more questions in 5 minutes than a wise man can answer in 5 years".

When the theologians eventually do come up with "answers", reality invariably proves them wrong. Keep it vague, keep it vague! Don't let the dog see the rabbit.
