Religion is...

Superficially maybe...


Religion is an exercise for the intellectuals and "the opiate for the masses".


I am listening to 'the forum', a world service podcast, and a discussion comparing gardens to ceramics eventually results in the metaphor being extended to religion. This seems like lazy intellectualism, bringing the uncertain to the uncertain. A unfitting (though similar) pair of metaphors to something that is infinitely able to accommodate any form of through.


Maybe this explains intelligent people who follow religion for the atheist.
