Comment 13 by Paula Kirby :

Taking things on trust and believing that there are some things we will not be able to understand in this life are central to faith - so we should never be surprised when, like the White Queen in Alice through the Looking Glass, the religious believe six impossible things before breakfast. It doesn't necessarily mean they are not sincere or genuine; and certainly not that they're stupid. It's just what the intellectual prison of religion does to its inmates.

Interesting metaphor for religion. Intellectual prison.

This naughty monkey like!
